"Love to live, live to create" is a Collaboration of minds and mediums by Rita Cumber and Sandy Wright - Two minds, four hands one inspiration

Rita Cumber
As far back as I can remember I knew I was to be an artist, inspired no doubt by my father an accomplished watercolour painter, albeit a hobby. One of my highlights as a child was to be allowed to watch him paint, not often, but enough to feed my passion, unlike him my medium is with oil paints. I have been influenced by painters such as Constable, New Zealand’s Charles Blomfield and years ago the impeccable brush work of Salvador Dali.

During the 80’s and 90’s I produced many landscapes and portraits which sold in the Rodney and Kiapara areas. More recently I have been working on several themes: South African landscapes, Earthen vessels and at present New Zealand landscapes and flora and fauna.

Sandy Wright
Born in Cambridge England in 1960.
"I spent 20 years of my working life in a photographic lab restoring and retouching photographs mainly black and white or sepia tone, when my job was taken by a mouse! With computer in tow, I decided it was time to put brush to canvas and create for myself. I still enjoy the detail and can’t help but be inspired by the nature and beauty all around me in the Bay of Islands and New Zealand my adopted home since 2006. I work in acrylics but like most people love to explore our fabulous beaches and use what I find in my work."
