Flower painting is the elegant thread that connects the lives of nine extraordinary women, diverse in background, but all artists. Some were New Zealand born, but most came from across the seas, travelling for months on end after emotional farewells to family and friends; new immigrants unlikely ever to return 'Home'. In the raw colony of New Zealand these lady painters took great solace in their art. Some painted to support themselves or their families, others largely for pleasure; all were fascinated and stimulated by the beautiful, strange flora of this new land. Lady Painters has been reduced from $69.95 to $19.95 as part of our Christmas sale.
