Lola Rosita Badman

Painter Lola Badman was born in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1937. Her appreciation of the natural environment began at ages 7 and 8 years, when she lived on the crest of the Cashmere Hills in Christchurch. She became aware of the extreme changes of the seasons – snow covering the hills; a blazing sun in summer, fog blanketing the city below; and at night, an immense star-lit sky. There was the equinox, with hot northwesterly winds causing the pine – forest nearby to crackle and roar. These seasonal changes to the landscape, have remained as a constant inspiration for the artist.

Her early experience in the arts was concerned mainly with music, when she studied violin and classical guitar. She combined this with orchestral work and ballroom dancing. Becoming involved with a tramping club in Christchurch fostered an interest in the New Zealand landscape, particularly in Fiordland, the Southern Alps, and the Coromandel areas. At a later date, she began painting under the guidance of the late Paul Olds of Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand.

Lola has exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions, in New Zealand and in Sydney, Australia, and gained a N.Z Academy of Fine Arts Award for landscape painting( 1985 ). Lola’s paintings form part of both public and private collections in New Zealand, Jamaica and the USA. Her work was included in a touring exhibition of Wuxi, Jiangsu province, Republic of China in 1991, organized by the Waikato Museum of Art and History; and in a touring exhibition organised by the King Country Visual Arts Trust.
