Live Painting Competition Participants
Below are the artists that will be competing in our Painting Competition during Light up the Night on August 24th.
As a bright eyed graduate I began a year of study at Malaspina University College (now Vancouver Island University), followed by a three year private apprenticeship with local artist Richard Hoedl. Much personal study and experimentation was next, with workshops and tutorials guiding my emerging style.
Being a part time mermaid necessitates a certain minimum of turquoise, gold, and water elements incorporated into my artwork. I love secrets and surprises and searching where I have not yet been invited. For this reason I often hide found objects, plastic dinosaurs, and messages in the backs of my paintings for other seekers to discover.
