Have been painting for 30 years including several solo exhibitions around the country and many joint ventures. Every now and again a flight of fancy takes over and abstract ventures that make statements or amuse burst forth. Always fun to see what happens or to put dreams onto canvas.
Visitors are most welcome to call and view my accumulated work in my Raglan studio.
With a background in Architectural Draughting and many years in advertising, picking up a paint brush seemed a natural transition to retirement. A year spent doing a refresher art course was stimulating and inspiring as acrylic colours on canvas became paintings. Developing a distinct style using layers of paint and large brush strokes, created land and seascapes that were both bold and colourful. Painting in large format mostly 1 x 1 metre or larger, the works catch the eye and make a statement.
Paintings have been exhibited in many galleries through out New Zealand and have gone as far afield as Australia, the USA and Korea. They complement modern décor in homes, offices and lodges. These days Ro prefers to show her art at her studio in Raglan.
Ro is registered with Creative NZ as a working artist and lives in Raglan, painting whenever she can.
