Miriam Busby has an M.A. in Arts Therapy degree, and has been a member of the New Zealand Watercolour Artists Society since January 2011. She studied watercolour landscape painting with Nancy Tichborne, Brian Carmody, and Shirley Sutton.

Miriam paints in watercolour, acrylics, mixed media and does collage. In 2010 Miriam won a poster competition at the New Zealand Bed and Breakfast Conference. The poster was designed to promote her own business, called Millie’s Bed and Breakfast.

Miriam’s interest in art began when she studied art, and art history at secondary school. In 1993 she studied painting and drawing at the Learning Connexion in Wellington, followed by a Foundation Certificate in Visual Arts course at Wellington Polytechnic. She then did a year of Visual Arts training at Nelson Polytechnic in 1994. She graduated from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design with a Master of Arts in Arts Therapy degree in November 2004.

Miriam has tutored art classes at Inverlochy Art School, Karori Arts and Crafts Centre in Wellington, and Tairawhiti Polytechnic in Gisborne. She tutored an art course for senior citizens at the Home of Compassion in Island Bay, and a holiday art program for a group of Sudanese children in Upper Hutt in 2006.

She has exhibited her work in the Norsewear Art Awards in Hawke’s Bay, in 1996 and 1997, at Creative Napier Gallery in Napier, the Rossetta Gallery in Raumati South, the Zea You Gallery in Taupo, and the Mahara Gallery in Waikanae in 2002. She has also exhibited work at a ‘Women’s Work’ exhibition, and the Works Restaurant in Gisborne, in 2003 and 2004, and in 2011 at the “New Zealand in Watercolour” exhibition.
