Dee Warring is a Paraparaumu-based artist and is exhibiting for two weeks at the Paraparaumu Library foyer. This exhibition, the InBetween, is a personal response to the ambiguity and uncertainty of life at this moment in time, as well as her ongoing interest as an artist in the places ‘in between’ realism and abstraction, and the real-world and the worlds of her imagination.

The exhibition includes a mix of paintings on canvas and fine art digital prints.

You can see more of Dee’s art on her website.
