New lease on art life in Matamata
through TLC (the Learning Connexion, Wellington).
The opportunity to do this by distance learning was beneficial and I found my appointed tutor gave very helpful feedback and detailed information. Definitely a worthwhile experience.
I also had tutoring by my late husband Martyn Pearce, an accomplished artist and musician.
I moved to Matamata from Whangarei towards the end of last year.
I was a member of CAN (Craft and Art Northland) and Northland Society of Arts and I am now a member of Art on Main gallery and Artist’s Co-Op in Tirau. Having learnt foundational techniques, I amexperimenting to find my style in my artwork.
The Westpac display during July features a variety of subjects with some cheerful colours to brighten the dreary winter weather.
