Episode 57: Theresa May- Theresa is predominantly a two dimensional artist. She works with a variety of mediums, from acrylic, charcoal, pastel oil and mixed media, depending on the required qualities of the subject. Canvas is her preferred choice of support, as it lends itself well to washes and treatments she likes to apply to her work. Enjoying the process of developing a story within her pictures, Theresa sometimes begins with a vague idea, then allows the process and story to evolve as she works. It’s a process she finds interesting, challenging, and almost spiritual in its approach.

Episode 58: John Crump- John Crump has worked at the never ending task of improving his painting as he tries to express his love of the things we see around us – particularly the landscape, but also flowers and still life from time to time. Being in the heart of mountain country has given John an unlimited choice of subjects at his doorstep. He is also able to teach small groups of painters in the inspiring mountain valleys and favourite spots around Lake Wakatipu. When a change of subject is called for, the coastline is never too far away. His paintings and written articles have been included in books and art magazines, he has held many successful one-man exhibitions and group exhibitions, and has taught adult students in art societies and polytechnic summer schools throughout New Zealand.
