Dame Robin White
Dame Robin is recognised as an important figure for developing New Zealand's regionalist style, with her work often depicting people in rural landscapes. Her work is a blend of Pakeha, Māori and Pacific influences. She is of Māori and Pakeha descent, born in Te Puke, and she studied at Elam School of Fine Arts where she was mentored by Colin McCahon.
Dame Robin is a painter, printmaker, and photographer, based in Masterton, after spending 17 years living in Kiribati. She continues to work with weavers and artists from the Pacific, and is currently producing work inspired by a visit to the Kermadec Islands. Dame Robin White was recently been named as a 2012 Distinguished Alumna of The University of Auckland.
