John Archbold


A life long interest in art, and a career in graphic design has led me to painting full time, from my studio in Johnsonville in Wellington.

I worked for many years in the printing industry, designing and illustrating for a wide range publications and other printed material.

I was educated at Wellington College, and undertook further study in London and Bristol when overseas, and have since enjoyed working in groups at the Hutt Art Society, and am currently an active member of the Khandallah Art Group.

I work in oils and watercolours, and have a fascination for capturing the effects of light on my subjects which range from landscapes, architecture, and transport.

I try to capture an accurate portrait of my subjects, while adding a feeling of the atmosphere of the occassion.
