FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Joan Oddy

I moved to Invercargill from Hamilton three years ago to be near my family. The South Island always has a special place in my heart as, in parts, it reminds me of South Africa where I was born. New Zealand has been my home for the last 43 years, so I am a Kiwi now! For many years I worked as a commercial artist – that dates me! Then I took up Pottery and for a time labored the clay, making a variety of things including sculptural images of African wildlife, always a passion. Since being in the South I have taken up brushes and got into painting. Bush, beach, river and mountains are my favorite images and our place in them. Underlying it all is my Christian faith and my love for God and His wonderful creation. Recently I discovered the beauty of Stained glass windows and the rich heritage we have of them here in New Zealand. I was inspired to do a series of paintings in that style incorporating scriptural verses from the Bible. These are available as canvas prints and greeting cards.
