My art philosophy

I began painting in 1999 at night school near Whakatane and passed School Certificate as a mature student. In 2000 I passed Bursary. Living in Opotiki, I had a succession of tutors in watercolour, oils and in a range of styles.

 

I became secretary of the Opotiki Art Society and was responsible for raising $200,000 for the restoration of their historic hall, built in 1898. We put on exhibitions throughout the restoration, learning how to display our work to best advantage. I was accepted for the Molly Morpeth exhibition, had my own studio at Bryans Beach and designed labels for my preserves in my boutique business, Kinsa’s Kitchen.

 

From 2007 – 2015 while travelling around New Zealand, I painted en plein air in wonderful locations using acrylic paints. These works are gradually coming to light since I settled in the western Bay of Plenty. I joined the Katikati Art Group and Tauranga Society of Arts, Tauranga Writers and Powertalk in Matamata to polish my art, writing, speaking and leadership skills.

 

I like to read, listen to classical music, walk in Nature, explore new places and spend time with my family in Auckland.
