Join us Saturday July 4th between 1:00pm and 4:00pm and meet these talented local artists.
Tammie was raised on the East Coast of Vancouver Island and now lives, works and paints in the beautiful Cowichan Valley. Her love of nature and the outdoors inspires her fascination and appreciation of the beauty of BC. Wide-open vistas and constantly changing weather patterns are an integral part of the environment celebrated in her in her paintings.
A burst of colour and pattern fill canvases in her ongoing series of award winning abstract paintings. A sense of excitement and movement are created in these works with the designs flying of the edge of the canvas in infinite possibilities. Contemporary landscape paintings and abstract works show two sides of Tammie.
Kylee is an emerging Canadian artist, born and raised in Ontario and currently residing in Victoria, British Columbia. Growing up with the constant exposure of her artist father, she picked up an appreciation and excitement for creating art. She completed the Fine Art program at Toronto's Centennial College in 2009. Since then, she has continued to develop her skills as a fine artist working primarily in acrylic on canvas.
Kylee's work has always had a consistent theme of nature, however her style has progressed into a more abstract interpretation of her surroundings. She works with colour and form, often playing with opposites like curves and straight edges, or light and dark tones to create contrast within her work. Painting abstract and stylized art allows her to escape from reality, creating something completely original from a place only in her mind. She enjoys the freedom of expression involved in this process. Kylee is driven by the desire to see what she will create next as her work is continually changing and evolving.
