About the Artist

A Brief History

The daughter of Robert Hannaford, one of Australia’s most eminent portrait painters, Tsering absorbed an attitude towards painting from life, not photographs, as a means of continual learning and discovery of the world around us. Tsering’s floral paintings capture the uniqueness of each bloom, not dissimilar to portraiture.
