Denise Joy White
Denise White, who passed peacefully at home on 14th May 2021, was a wonderful artist and a gallery stalwart. Her art was much loved and sold often at Welcome Swallow. She presented with the Waikato Watercolourists at their special exhibition in February last year, writing for the Catalogue, "the sea, the river and dairy country as well as the plentiful flora, give a vast array of subjects to paint". Such was the bounty of Denise's art and life. It is no surprise that she loved en plein air painting as seen in the beautiful composition above, Bantry Bay. She will be terribly missed.
