Health and age are not barriers for Timaru artist Hiria Moffat, although a studio would be handy.
Ms Moffat (80) has kept her hands and mind busy with painted porcelain works over the past several years, despite suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
Now, she is looking for a space to work from as there have been changes at the studio where she has been based.
Ms Moffat said she was on a limited income and lived in a one-bedroom flat with little space.
“A studio would be ideal but I can’t afford one. It would be only a space the size of a desk and a chair that I would be using.”
Her works focused on New Zealand mythology, flowers and birds, she said.
“It’s a declining art because
of the number of imported works.
“It keeps my hands and mind active and there is a thrill in accomplishing something.”
