Claudia Pond-Eyley was born in Matamata in 1946 and was educated in Montreal, Canada and Yonkers, New York. She studied at Auckland University's Elam School of Arts, graduating in 1968 with a Diploma in Fine Arts. After many years as a professional artist, Pond-Eyley returned to the University of Auckland to complete herMasters in Fine Art in 1997.
Pond-Eyley's work explores feminist concerns and personal experiences, alongside more representational works offlowers and foliage. Strong simplified outlines and bold colours juxtaposed with monochromatic backgrounds create striking and dynamic pieces.
A celebrated New Zealand artist, Pond-Eyely has held over 30 solo exhibitions and completed major mural commissions, including the highly-regarded 1984 VAANA (Visual Artists Against NuclearArms) mural in Karangahape Road, Auckland, alongside such luminaries as Pat Hanly and Nigel Brown.
