Konstantina is a proud Gadigal woman of the Eora nation and an neo-contemporary indigenous artist. She is re-imagining the traditions of her peoples’ dot painters and providing a modern narrative for all Australians to better understand First Nations People as part of the fabric of Australia.

Her work is simple and yet intricately detailed. Her colour palette is well chosen and directly reflective of each of her artworks narratives. The use of bright colours teamed with earthly tones look as much like they’re out of a magazine as they do the bush.
She directly relates the struggles, inspiration, challenges and daily turmoil she feels at being a mum, a storyteller, a creative, a woman and above all a connected Aboriginal person to the land, the animals and spirit of our country into her modern take into a time honoured tradition of dot painting.

Using acrylics and sticks found on mother Earth she sits quietly for hours producing works on paper, canvas and at scale for public art projects.
She now resides with her husband and three young children on Bundjalung Country where she is inspired by the nature that surrounds her and her sons.
