Paddy is my aunty on my father's side. She was a wonderful artist, writer, poet and person.
Throughout my life, I have visited her and her family in Wellington. It was always a treat as she was flamboyant and colourful with a wonderful turn of phrase. The visits were always fun and I loved her artist ways.
I remember going into her house and where ever you looked there was art in progress. She was always curious and encouraging with my art.
This picture was inspired by a mobile photo of the whole whanau. Once I returned home I looked at the photo and thought wouldn't it be a treat for the artist to stipple the artist. The pattern is about the flow of time. It was such a pleasure to do this picture and give it to her.
