About Ted Sherwen
Ted Sherwen trained as a lithographic artist in Glasgow, and during his apprenticeship studied lithographic drawing and design at the Glasgow College of Printing. He tutored at the College for twelve years. The Sherwen family made New Zealand their home in 1974. Throughout the 1980's Ted travelled to the USA to study with leading watercolourist Rex Brandt. His work has evolved and developed into a unique and easily recognisable style that has put him at the forefront of New Zealand watercolourists. Sherwen has received Awards for his work in Scotland and New Zealand and is a member of the Academy of Fine Art and the Wellington Society of Watercolour Artists.
Sherwen travels extensively spending time in Italy and the United Kingdom. His travels invariably supply inspiration for his painting and exhibitions. With over forty years experience as a professional artist Sherwen is a popular tutor, holding workshops throughout New Zealand and taking classes at the Mairangi Bay Arts Centre.
