McAlister, Olive

1932 -2017

Painting watercolours was central to Olive McAlister's life for 50 years.

She aimed to complete two paintings each week, preferring to paint scenery - seascapes, mountains, bush and flowers. She did not draw first, but liked to paint directly to give a fresh, clean result.

Olive painted with the founder of Watercolour New Zealand, Eleanor File and was a member of the Society from its early days.

She won the Great Lakes Art Award and twice received a Merit Award from the Paraparaumu Rotary Art Show.

Olive McAlister died in October 2017 in Wellington.
