Nita McIntyre - ‘My art practice started with photography, which I did for several years. One of the things I learned from that was picture composition. A few years later and with a large stack of photos I decided to turn them into paintings.Now I am retired, and have more time to create and try new styles. I do have a particular passion for landscapes and nature.'

Anna Mowatt - ‘I do not paint for a particular audience, just allowing my own interpretation of how I see and feel. I love to paint skies with open ended contemplation and contradictory possibilities’.

Rosemary Ormond - ‘I began painting about 10 years ago. Over the last eight years I have exhibited in local art exhibitions where I have had successful sales of my work and won the title of “Best in Exhibition” at the Art Hawkes Bay Exhibition. Also, I have sold my work through “Muse” Art Gallery in Havelock North. I enjoy painting Landscapes and Seascapes.'

Dawn Newell - 'I have been painting for about ten years and really enjoy the creativity. My preferred medium is acrylic, because it is easy to use, the colours and application style suits my work. My favourite subjects are water scenes, and Still Life especially fruit. I also love to paint Tuscan scenes with their beautiful vibrant colours. I am inspired by my tutor, Helen Kerridge and my fellow painters with their enthusiasm and interest. I have exhibited at “Art Hawkes Bay” and at all the Humanity Art Exhibitions.'

Joy Mill - I began my art journey as a child. I was always drawing and fancied myself as a dress designer. About eight years ago I joined Helen Kerridge’s Humanity Painters group and under her excellent tuition I have created many inspired paintings of which some have sold. I have exhibited in Helen’s art exhibitions and the Art HB exhibitions. I love painting with acrylics and when I am working on a painting I find this is my “happy place”.

Lesley Beck - ‘My medium is acrylic and I draw inspiration from the Old Masters and Still Life paintings. I have been painting with the Humanity Art Group for 5 plus years and give full credit to my amazing and talented tutor, Helen Kerridge, who is so inspirational, and full of encouragement and knowledge. I have exhibited yearly at the Hastings Community Arts Centre a sponsored event through the above group. Painting to me is a very therapeutic exercise which I so enjoy’.

Sam Smith - ‘I have no rules or methods. Inspiration comes from many sources, my current focus is the human form and dramatic scenery. I respond to colour in my life and this need has transferred to my painting, At this stage I am a modernist painter. I love the freedom using the palette knife brings, allowing me to bold and extravagant in applying the acrylic paint. I let myself go, as the painting begins to evolve it leads me. To me a special piece includes something of myself.’

Robyn Gunn - ‘I am a student of Helen Kerridge in Hastings and have been attending her art classes for about 8 years. I use acrylics and enjoy using a palette knife as well as brush work. I love animals and nature and earthy and green colours. I paint as a hobby and enjoy trying to improve my art’.

Jerry Williams - ‘Art is always with me and in me; I cannot remember a time when it wasn’t so. Twelve weeks spent as a VAD student at EIT moved the momentum forward. It wasn’t until, bemoaning my lack of skills with the use of colour, that someone said to me – ‘Helen Kerridge will sort you out!’ She is still doing so – never letting us forget that colour theory is a challenge for the long haul!'

Donna - Encouraged and inspired by Helen Kerridge, Donna’s art tutor since 2014 when she was introduced to art through a friend. Initially it was a means of escaping ‘real work’ now life is ‘more’ with art... more colourful, more interesting, more inspiring, more fun and always travels with her camera ready to snap that one photo that will come to life on her canvas.
