I dabbled with painting at school but wasn’t encouraged. Over the years I tried all sorts of other arty pursuits but always held the thought that I really wanted to paint.
About 20 years ago, feeling a desperate need to paint, I joined an art group in Mt Eden and felt as though I’d “come home”. Over the years I took part in workshops for oil, acrylic and watercolour painting and with trial and lots of error, my confidence gradually grew. We had regular exhibitions and my paintings sold successfully.
Recently I recently renewed my love of oils by joining a painting class taken by Janice Clifton Wykes at the Reyburn House studio.
