Mercy Hospital, in Dunedin, has set aside a wall opposite their reception
desk for Poems in the Waiting Room to display Art Work.
Each month a new artist is invited to fill the wall with their work. Poems
in the Waiting Room takes a small percentage of sales as a fundraiser.
Janie Porter is our June artist.
Janie is a New Zealander and lives on Banks Peninsula/Horomaka. She trained in England, New Zealand, and at the University of Fine Arts in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Janie has lived almost her entire life near the sea and has loved and observed birds since she was a child
She is known for her work in portraiture, landscape and birds. While working in various mediums, usually with a palette knife, she is constantly experimenting with transparency and form.
