Wild and Salty Studio is a creative studio founded by Jade Barclay, illustrator, artist and designer, in Queenstown New Zealand.

Artist, illustrator and graphic designer Jade Barclay.

Art Studio

Jade is inspired by feminine forms, their strength and grace, and the wonders of mother nature, with her immediate environment of towering mountains and native bush balanced with warm waters and fruit markets, that lace her travels, evident in her work.

Her work invites you to savour life’s profound beauty with her earthy palettes and organic brush strokes, balanced with rustic texture and line use.

A woman’s journey to the peaks, depths and corners of the land, physically and emotionally, fuel Jade’s creative outlet, supported by her background in holistic nutrition, women’s wellness and psychology.  

Jade’s artwork thanks the beautiful and challenging experiences that we face as a society, and the teachings of nature, to strengthen and connect us all.
