Maureen’s passion is to explore, paint and present the ocean waves and shore to other people. She is an environmentalist at heart, hoping our shores are going to be pristine forever.

 Maureen is a seasoned artist who specializes in creating all different sizes of watercolours and oil paintings from photographs of the Pacific coastal locations on Vancouver Island. She is prolific, with a large inventory of paintings for sale.

 Maureen is no stranger to the Victoria audience as her work has been shown and sold at many prestigious locations around this area. She grew up in Victoria, British Columbia and has spent most of her life developing her interest in art and began painting at the young age of eight years old.

Maureen has been fortunate to study painting over the past ten years with expert painters both locally and in France.

Maureen has sold her paintings to collectors all over the world.

Cafe Artist - Anne Bowen

Cafe Artist - Anne Bowen

Location: The Courtyard Cafe, P1 Level of the Hotel Grand Pacific
Date: The month of March 2020

Website

Anne was born in England and grew up in British Columbia. The mountains, ocean and forests nurtured a curiosity and love for the natural world. She paints for the sheer joy of transporting herself into a landscape, still life or the connection with an animal she has encountered on her travels. Anne's painting style is constantly evolving; attempting to translate exquisite moments of fleeting light and shadow on her subjects.

Whether representational, expressionistic or interpretative, Anne uses the style or technique suitable for capturing those special moments. The acrylic paint that she uses facilitates spontaneity allowing for both
watercolour effects and textural possibilities. Starting with the classical underpainting and building with many transparent layers; a vibrant palette, strong compositions, subtle shades and contrast combine to create the dynamic and contemporary feel in her work. All artistic endeavors enrich our lives, and Anne hopes to make a contribution by focusing on some of the beauty in our world and sharing it with others.

Primarily a self taught artist, Caroline has completed courses in Visual Art Media at Langara College, Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design and The Vancouver Academy of Art. Her interest in exploring different media and techniques has lead to a variety in art work but with a constant theme of nature and animals. Born and raised on the West Coast, she has had the privilege of growing up surrounded by spectacular scenery.  Currently her studio is nestled in the Gulf Islands, providing endless subject matter to explore and paint on my silk canvas.

Cafe Artist - Arden Rose

Cafe Artist - Arden Rose

Location: Courtyard Cafe, P1 Level of the Hotel Grand Pacific
Date: The month of June 2020

Website

Arden Rose loves painting florals, landscapes and nudes, but her favourite is the portrait. She is fascinated by the role of the portrait in our lives and its representational nature. Her portrait painting method is expressionistic and different from the standard "sitting". 

Arden's aim is to provide you with a piece of art that reflects your true self; that acknowledges your soul, and your vulnerability and the power that is truly you. The portrait becomes your reminder of your truest, deepest self.

The artist's favourite medium is acrylic paint and she often adds collage elements to her work. She continues to explore various painting methods and applications and considers herself an eternal student of the arts.
