Description I was so fortunate to watch a pair of hummingbirds playing in our backyard. They are so fast and agile. Their wings make the most wonderful noise. It was a real treat. I have stylised this cute hummingbird using Maori symbols.
Desray Lithgow, Bend, Oregon, USA Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement I am fortunate to have a heritage rich in both New Zealand Maori and European ancestory to draw upon.
I belong to Ngai Tai and Tuwharetoa iwi (tribes), graduating from Hamilton Teachers College and the University of Waikato with a Diploma of Teaching, Bachelor of Education and Certificate in Bilingual Education.
Generally I prefer to sketch from life first and then spend time visualizing how I would like an image to appear on canvas before painting. Using acrylic paint, I love figurative painting, exploring different color combinations and using patterns from my culture where possible.
