about akasha mead

in a colourful nutshell

I like to think that a word people use to describe me is ‘colourful’, and I’d be proud if they did. I love rich culture, loud patterns, bright colours, and going barefoot.

I’ve spent a long time working on being the most true version of myself, and I’m still working on it. I love the things that make me unique, as we all should. Don’t be afraid to live your life in full colour

my art journey

After I realised I had to get good grades in school to become a veterinarian – I decided I was going to be artist instead!

I was always a creative child, but at 19 I started selling my first commissioned artworks, and my art career began.

I have spent over 10 years making a creating artworks while travelling the world and working various part-time jobs.
However, it wasn’t until 2022 that I felt I truly found my artistic voice, and became the artist I am today.

I am passionate about experimentation, and am always excited to explore new techniques within my artworks.

my visual journal

Another creative outlet for me is creating beautiful videos. I love the process of video editing and cinematography. If you’d like to explore my painting process, and get to know me a little better, take a look through my YouTube channel.

my inspiration

I’ve always been somewhat of a free spirit, and the freedom and beauty seen within the animal kingdom is one of my main inspirations.

I want to convey a sense of peaceful strength in my artworks, using vivid colours and wild animals to bring relatability and emotion to the canvas.

Pure passion is what drives me to paint almost every day and my only hope is that someone might get some joy from the paintings I create.
