Joan Batten - Arts Canterbury

Joan Batten


I began painting in oils in 1966 and became a member of the CSA (later COCA). I have been a member of Arts Canterbury for many years and was honoured with Life Membership in 2018.


In 1995 I had lessons in watercolour from Nancy Tichborne. I found watercolour more difficult but I like both styles. My work is very traditional.


Many of my works have sold at exhibitions and galleries all over Christchurch, Ashburton, Darfield, Oxford and the North Island. Some have gone overseas. There have been several commissions and many gifts.
