Heritage Cathedral or Rugby Watercolour 39.5cm x 75cm Enquire Now Sold
Born 1943 Studied at Christchurch Teachers College, Victoria University and Auckland University. Working life spent teaching, social work, personnel management and industrial relations.
Women of my age have seen thousands of pictures so they have a greater interest in simplified, pleasing and balanced arrangements of one's own ideas and outlooks. By referring to abstraction in painting I think that my intention is to create the essence of the subject rather than to reproduce the pictorial aspects of what is presented. I personally prefer the work to take on a life of it's own as it grows naturally from my memory, vision or perspective. Colour, form and linear relationships are important to me with a particular place, event or significant person suggested in the composition. "To thine own self be true" has remained a guiding principal and this allows some personal issues and occasional problems to be resolved as each painting develops. My best advice to an aspiring artist would be to follow your thoughts when it comes to painting.
