BUTTON Ivan

glendu-bay-wanaka

Ivan was born in England in 1944 and immigrated to New Zealand with his family in 1958. He trained and worked as a graphic designer in the Advertising Industry. His passion for art has embraced all expressions: From the weird and exciting stuff of the 1960’s to the easy to understand impressionism of today – something he never believed he’d come to.


Now the subjects of English and Provencal villages in watercolour and some still life focuses in oils stir his blood as in the old days! Along with his love for visual art, Ivan has an interest in most sport, loves music, and his current work as Minister of the BaptistChurch in Rangiora. He is married, with three adult children and five grandchildren.

In recent times, Ivan has developed and facilitated the “NEARLY SERIOUS PAINTERS WORKSHOP,’ a popular program of tutoring and encouraging artists at various stages of progress.
