Te Rito, Del

I have been very keen on all aspects of art since I was a small child. This continued through high school, where I seemed to do quite well in art. I completed part of a commercial art course before marriage and three children became my focus in life.

I joined the Wellington Art Club over 20 years ago and have exhibited many times with that group in different venues around Wellington.

I am also a member of Water Colour New Zealand, The NZ Academy of Fine Arts and the Seatoun Arts and Crafts group and have had some success in selling there.

Well-known artists such as Richard Ponder, Graeme Braddock, Randall Froude and others have tutored workshops I have attended.

I paint in oil, watercolour and acrylic.
I enjoy painting landscapes, including Wellington’s wonderful vistas and cityscapes, flowers, and still life.

I have a large garden, which I enjoy working in, and which provides me with inspiration for my paintings.

I am originally from the West Coast of the South Island; this region has been the inspiration for many of my landscapes.

I hope you get a lot of pleasure from my paintings.
