Dorothy Meharry was born in 1948 and educated at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design, graduating with a Master of Fine Artsin 2006. She also holds a Certificate in Multi Media Studies (2002)and is a member and exhibitor of the Mairangi Art Centre.
Meharry's abstract paintings combine her love of NZ native flora- in particular the NZ flax leaf (the 'harekeke' of herHarekeke Dreaming series) - with her interest in contemporary technological processes.
These disparate influences and their expression through the use of mixed media form part of Meharry's metaphorical comment on themetaphysical character of parallels inherent in nature: change and constancy, light and dark, tempest and calm.
