NADA HUNTER 1918–2005

Nada Hunter was well known in artistic circles, especially through the Victorian Artists Society to whom she left several legacies for the benefit of artists.

Nada was born in Donald in 1918 but spent most of her life in Camberwell in Melbourne.

She studied for a year at the Teachers College, University of Melbourne and joined the WAAF at the outbreak of WW2 in 1939. Nada was engaged as an intelligence analyst throughout SE Asia, and she continued in this highly secretive work after the war in Intelligence Signals and Communications based at Albert Park.

Nada's paintings are full of spontaneity and her joyous high keyed palette places her firmly in the modernist movement. She was a regular exhibitor with the Victorian Artists Society from 1952 and member of the Melbourne Society of Women Painters and Sculptors since 1982.
