About Us

Talofa Lava, My name is Nela Taniela, I was born in the village of Lalomanu, Upolu Samoa and have lived in Mangere, Auckland since the age of 3. From the moment I could put pen to paper I have always had a passion for art. For over a decade I have been creating digital illustrations and graphic designs for friends and family. In 2018 i established @nelataniela and what a buzz it has been.

I knew that I would want to pursue this full time at some stage, but always held off simply for the fear of failure and financial security, but a wise friend once told me, that success isn't measured by how much money you can make, but how much happiness it brings to your life. So here I am, officially working full time as a digital illustrator and graphic designer. #livingthedream

Since starting @nelataniela page I’ve been getting an overwhelming amount of requests for digital copies of some of my artworks, hence why I’ve decided to create this online store for everyone who wants their very own copy of my artwork.

Looking forward to future. 🥂 Cheers, Nela.
