Brian Baxter has painted professionally for over 40 years since quitting his signwriting business in Blenheim in 1973 and then winning the prestigious Kelliher first prize for landscapes in 1977

Brian has exhibited in all N.Z main centres as well as Adelaide and Washington D.C.

He works mainly in oils in a “traditional representational” style, with occasional excursions into watercolours or acrylics, and his works in all three media hang in many countries throughout the world.

Four overseas tours since 2000 have produced many paintings from such areas as Cornwall, Italy, Switzerland, France, Venice, Germany, Holland, the U.K, Greece, and the U.S.A, specifically the Grand Canyon, New York etc.

Closer to home,  Australia, Fiji  and our own stunning scenery have all been revisited many times.

Except for such field trips and some “plein air”  or location painting, he now works mainly from his studio in Blenheim, where he lives with his wife Kathy.
