Michael McKenzie (Mike) Ponder (1943-.) New Zealand

Biographical Information

Born in 1943, Mike Ponder was raised in Lower Hutt, New Zealand and educated at Hutt Valley High School where he first discovered he had a talent for art. However, it was not until he was in his early thirties that he took up painting seriously. He believes that his unique and individual style is due to being self-taught.

Mike is a founding member of the very successful "5 Artists" group and has assisted and encouraged new artists through tutoring night classes and weekend schools. During his quarter century of professional painting he has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand and internationally and produced two books of his works.Edit or add to this biography
