KARYN HITCHMAN ARTIST
I will happily undertake your commission. I will work with you and discuss what you are particularly looking for. You may want yourself or your child to be represented in a painting in my style. Please contact me to discuss.
Karyn Hitchman Painter in Oils & Children's book Illustrator.
After many years of working in the fashion industry as a designer and pattern-maker, then several years of guiding tourists on the mountain trails of New Zealand's South Island, I have been inspired by these as well as history and costume. Therefore I love painting colour, texture, fabric, nature and she loves painting people. I am a self taught artist, as well as having taken private lessons with some of my much admired fellow artists.
My series "The Aristocrats" tells a story of our ancestors and the excesses of the time of Louis XVI. I imagine the portraits hanging in your living rooms and hallways (drawing rooms or library's), displayed as if they are your own ancestors.
My paintings are found in galleries and private collections in New Zealand and other countries around the world.
