For the first time in Victoria, RAW:natural born artists is coming! This is an organization of artists supporting artists world-wide, to showcase their work in visual arts, fashion, make-up, accessories, theatre, dance, music and the visual arts. It is with humbleness that I am fortunate to be part of this amazing showcase!
Sponsored by the West Shore Arts Council, “Winter Sounds at the Westin” will showcase Coast Collective Art Centre at an event at Bear Mountain Resort. Eight local painters and associates of Coast Collective, including myself, will be displaying their visual art on easels throughout the Hotel main floor and lower floor.
The event will begin at 2pm and conclude at 5pm on Sunday, December 10, 2017.
Gifts & Wishes features unique hand made treasures for holiday gift giving! Associate artists at Coast Collective Art Centre bring in hand-made creations just in time for Christmas! Come and see beautiful items made of glass, ceramic, forged metal, wood, gourds, fabric, yarn, and paintings - something for everyone!
I took my first stab at watercolour painting in the winter of 2012 when I went to an art class with instructor Greg Swainson. I loved how he “made magic” with his paint brush and was inspired to continue taking several more of his classes. When I completed one of my first paintings done in a class with Greg, called Asian Reflections (see in Gallery), he inquired if I’d ever thought about selling it, and that I did, along with 10 other paintings!
