Fay Thomson began painting about 20 years ago and her work reflects the beauty of nature she sees around her. She enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects in either watercolours or oils and says she pours herself into every painting she produces. Fay has won many awards in Tauranga and Auckland and has twice been a finalist in the biennial Miles Art Award at Tauranga Art Gallery. Fay has showcased her work in Colleen Thwaites' Te Puna garden for the past three festivals, her work complementing Colleen's beautiful traditional grounds.
