Christina Dench has been interested in art since an early age.
Dench is the South Canterbury Art Society’s exhibiting artist for July. Her exhibition is now on display at the society’s Gleniti Rd rooms.
‘‘I am a member of the South Canterbury Art Society,’’ Dench said.
‘‘I have always been very interested in art from the time I was a child. Painting in watercolour was my love.’’
Dench said she was inspired by the work of many New Zealand watercolour artists.
‘‘I am mostly self-taught.
‘‘I have attended art classes run by Nancy van den Broeke and have also sold many of my artworks around South Canterbury.’’
She is now working with acrylics on canvas.
Her work can be viewed at the Gleniti Rd rooms on Thursdays from 10am to 3pm or by appointment, phone (03) 688-5807.
