Collection Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth. Purchased from Monica Brewster Bequest in 1981.

From artist's statement:
Female nude I, II and III are part of a series of seven nudes, which I see as images with personal and emotional content. The blood-red tulips are a conscious prop. I don't treat the camera as a literal mirror held up to 'reality' but as a tool to create personal metaphors for a personal reality.
