Featured artist Cindy Hutton appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Sixteen (16). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.
Cindy Hutton is a Nelson artist who has inherited her love of art from her grandmother, who was also a professional artist. She paints in oils, from photographs of anything from landscapes to portraits.
“I was originally inspired to paint in watercolours after seeing the works of early watercolour artists. However, after attending a workshop where I was tutored by a renowned New Zealand artist, I developed a love for oil painting. I have always been drawn to romanticism and I enjoy the challenge of taking a blank canvas and creating a scene that evokes happiness, drawn from New Zealand’s magic scenery combined with the carefree poses of children.”
Cindy works from her studio in Nelson, which overlooks an acre of park-like gardens. She and her husband have a family of four. She has used their early childhood photos as the subject of many of her works. Her art is displayed in galleries throughout New Zealand and in her own gallery at 77 Champion Road, Richmond, Nelson.
