Artworks by Robyn McBride

I began painting when my three children were young, pursued other creative outlets during a career as a primary school teacher and Education Advisor. Initially I used oils, had a brief 'fling' with watercolours, but love the vibrancy of acrylics. My paintings express my thoughts and feelings about things around me - at home, in the garden, and our wonderful New Zealand landscape, particularly the Waikato area where I live. Overseas travel to different countries adds another layer of diversity.

While my work is largely realistic in style, I enjoy combining elements in unusual ways. I am intrigued by surrealism, particularly the Belgian artist Magritte, with his use of words together with images. I have always admired Aboriginal art, and have used some of the techniques in recent paintings. My wonderfully supportive husband and inspiring 'art' friends encourage me to challenge my boundaries!

I have had works displayed in various local Hamilton galleries (Sandz ,'Artspost') and the Mayor's office and national galleries , 'Carpe Deim' in Wellington and 'The Pumphouse' in Auckland In 2008 I was a finalist in the McCaw Lewis Chapman Waikato Regional Art Competition.
