ABOUT

Hi, I'm Lenore!

 

I live in British Columbia with my husband and beautiful lab, Clare. I have three children and two teenage grandsons. Creating of any kind interests me, from needle felting to pattern designing. Currently my heart belongs to painting. I'm a self taught artist experimenting with gouache and watercolour. I'm drawn to a loose style and expressive brush strokes preferring intuitive marks over fine detail these days to portray a sense of movement and vibrancy in my subjects. I'm very grateful for the opportunity at this stage in my life to explore this exciting avenue. When I'm not painting I'm composing still life photographs and knitting socks and mitts. I've recently joined the Fraser Valley Watermedia Society and am looking forward to connecting with other artists in this inviting community.
