Pastel Artists of Nelson - New Zealand

   Hi, my name is Glenys Forbes

 I am the Nelson Bays Area Representative and convene the weekly group sessions at Mapua by    organising workshops, keeping members informed of upcoming events and generally keeping the ball rolling. After 12 years of total commitment on the National Committee and 5 of those as Editor of the NZ Pastel Artist (official newsletter for PANZ)  I was honoured to be awarded Life Membership of PANZ. I remain very passionate about PANZ and pastel as a painting medium.

Over the years I have been very fortunate to have received a number of awards for my work, the most exciting being Highly Commended (runner up) in 2005 and a Merit in 2017 at our "Purely Pastel"  National Awards. This is my webpage and I hope that you enjoy your browse. If you wish to contact me regarding PANZ, the Nelson Area group,or my own artwork, you may use the contact page or the following.
