About Kay Bazzard
Hawke's Bay artist and writer
At my home in Havelock North I work in my studio most days. I have lived here since 1999, when we moved from Huapai in north-west Auckland to Hawke's Bay. What made me an artist? I've always been a creative person, exploring painting and portraiture when career and family life allowed.
The picture on the right is of my studio where I work on my clay sculpture in a converted former potting shed
The painting below by Philip E. Stretton "Stable companions" was inherited by my husband from his Uncle, John Brazil, a Buckinghamshire farmer and Master of the Old Berkeley Hunt, a painting that reflected his passion and had been gifted to him. It was the sale of this painting through the Webbs Auction House which funded the conversion of the former potting shed and facilitated my development as an artist.
