Bianca van Rangelrooy

Bianca has a BFA in Painting from the Ilam School of Fine Arts and a MFA in Painting, completed in 2010, from The National Art School, in Sydney.

She has tutored art related subjects all her life, initially with children, at the Canterbury Society of the Arts and later within Ilam University’s, Continuing Educational programme.

She has also tutored at the Faculty of Art and Design at Aoraki and Christchurch Polytechnics.

Bianca lectured in Design Graphics and Visual communication within the Landscape Architectural programme at Lincoln University from 1991 to 2014.

Throughout her career she has practised art making, and has a long history of exhibiting in both solo and group.

Her work is varied, in subject and technique, and spans forty years.

Bianca lived through the Canterbury earthquakes and the demise of the city. The city as she remembered it has gone, along with its galleries and the type of life she loved.

In 2015 she moved to Auckland, it is with gratitude that she finds herself here in a city intact, set within an undulating landscape, with coastal vistas, stunning trees and a benign climate, a place she now calls home.
