Cindy Hutton, who paints in oils from photographs, inherited her love of art from her grandmother, who was also a professional artist. "I was originally inspired to paint in watercolours after seeing the works of early watercolour artists,” Cindy says. “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 park-like gardens. Her art is displayed throughout New Zealand and in her own gallery in Richmond. 77 Champion Road, Richmond. 0275 664 842,
