  1. Hi Rebecca
    Matron Mary Early was a relation of ours and we are researching her history at present. We have her war medals. How did you come to paint her

    1. Hi Pip, My grandfather served with the NZ Mounted Rifles in the Middle East and was a patient at the Aotea Convalescent home. I decided to create a series of paintings to honour the women who ran the home. I met a number of relatives of the nurses when I showed the exhibition in Whanganui in 2018.
