Brenda Moir - Paddle Percy Island
I have always been involved with colour and was trained as a “colour matcher “ in my early employment. It was inevitable then that I turned to “Art as my favourite activity when I finally granted myself the time to enjoy life, when moving to the Bay of Islands. My images are usually taken from the natural landscape, flora and fauna and bird life, being an artist who has to “feel” the subject before and during the process of painting it. Some of my works can take months to complete as I work in all shapes and sizes with a great attention to detail in most. I also enjoy working with and changing the outside canvas or board shape to create an interesting outline for the painting itself. Many times I have used old pieces of driftwood or objects discarded which I am then recycling.
