Bari is one of New Zealand’s top seascape artists. Having 30 years of painting experience in initially
pastels, then acrylics and now her preferred medium is oils.
Born and bred in the Hawkes Bay, she has a great love of the local sea and landscapes.
In past years Bari has had many successful local and national, solo and joint exhibitions, and has
commissioned works worldwide. She has been published several times in the New Zealand artists
magazine, Australian artists magazine and the International Artists magazine.
With no formal training, purely a strong connection to the land and sea, Bari is totally self taught, and says she improves with each painting produced and is on a constant learning journey with a long exciting road ahead.
