Watercolour New Zealand past President (2010-2012), Vice-President, Committee member, Newsletter Editor, Workshops & Courses Coordinator.
My delight is in quick lively pen-and-wash sketches of places I go, people I see, home and away. So watercolour is favourite for me, being portable and quick-drying.I’m captivated by the challenge of painting in watercolour. When pigments are floated in water they create beautiful colour blends, transparent glows, mysterious darks. Watercolour flows and explores and I love to go exploring with it.
My watercolour kit comes everywhere with me. Painting 'on site' means the chance to feel the mood of the day.
I love to wander off to the hills, valleys, beaches and villages in New Zealand and anywhere - to paint – especially with friends.
I am the past President of Watercolour New Zealand and editor of the Society's newsletter. New Zealand boasts wonderful watercolourists. We are a very active, friendly group meeting to paint, share and learn and laugh.
In 2012 I was the artist on the Royal Tour of New Zealand by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. A huge privilege and a huge challenge!
I live in the village of Te Marua in Upper Hutt, north of Wellington and spend each January in the gliding world at Omarama, soaring and painting the glorious Southern Alps.
