Beth Nolan

Beth Nolan paints with watercolour to create vibrant and dynamic depictions of New Zealand birds that celebrate the beauty and wonder of Aotearoa. She grew up on a farm on the West Coast, a childhood surrounded by the beauty of the southern alps, rugged beaches and lush rainforests.

Spending much of her adult life travelling overseas, on coming home, she felt exploring the beautiful wildlife of New Zealand would help reconnect with that sense of 'home' she yearned for, it has been her obsession ever since. Beth’s chosen medium, watercolour, is a dance between spontaneity and restraint, a contradictory technique she has spent several years refining and mastering.
