About the tutor:
Eraine McArthur is a practicing artist studying watercolour under the renowned natural history artist and NatureArt Lab tutor, Lesley Wallington. Eraine turned to art to manage chronic pain, and has learnt about connection to “self” through art, and its capacity to reduce stress and help those with trauma & PTSD. Eraine reinvigorated her appreciation for natural history during trips to the South Pacific region over a 30-year career as a nurse in the Australian Army.
Eraine tutors the beginner (and most recently) intermediate watercolour groups at NatureArt Lab in Canberra and enjoys connecting with others in our community who find inspiration in the natural world. She is also supporting Veterans and children through her interests in Art Therapy. Eraine has exhibited her artwork in Canberra, including at Strathnairn Gallery.
