Graham Christensen is opening his Ashhurst studio this Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm. 84 Glenburn Road, Ashhurst (off Napier Rd - see map in photos).

Everyone is welcome to drop in and visit the studio to view his latest paintings, have a chat, and see an artist at work.

About Graham
Graham Christensen did not pick up an artist’s brush until his early 60’s but quickly showed a natural talent with oils and a great affinity with the rural landscape.

He lives on a farm near Palmerston North in the Manawatu region and works from a large, light-filled studio – a converted room at the back of the barn.

Graham’s paintings depict his life-long love of farming and the rugged landscape that New Zealand offers. His latest works are a reminiscence of rural life and moments in time that make up the rich tapestry of our farming communities and their significant place in our country’s history.
