About the workshop

This 4-day workshop will focus on simplifying information and enlivening colour to create a bolder more personalized painting.
Starting with an exercise which explores this editing process, we will carry the learned experience into a painting that generates energy, colour and personal expression.

About the artist
Greta grew up and completed her Fine Arts degree in South Africa. She moved in 1980 to the Sunshine Coast of B.C. where she has since worked from her studio as an illustrator and painter.
“Having lived on the west coast for 30 years I feel an integration with it's character, and this has become the vehicle for my artistic expression. I believe that through the familiar sketches of life I create a bond with the viewers which allows me to converse with them on an aesthetic level. I paint in a way to express my involvement with the subject: I simplify and distort the forms, enhance the expressive value of colour, and create a rhythm that animates the scene. In this way I develop a visual language that conveys my sense of wonder and materializes the spirit of joy I feel.”
