About the workshop

In this workshop I’d like to encourage a step by step progress of starting a painting with big shapes and bold strokes and working in stages to clarify and refine the information with smaller shapes and more detailed colouring.

About the instructor

Greta completed her Fine Arts Degree in South Africa where she grew up and then, in 1980, immigrated to Vancouver. She worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, and taught printmaking classes at Capilano College. Since 1990, she has worked as a painter from her studio on the Sunshine Coast of B.C. Having become an established artist in the galleries, her artwork has also seen diverse application from book Illustration, to designs promoting a variety of events and festivals.

Artist Statement

I have a strong bond and reverence for the landscape that surrounds me, and feel compelled to reveal the living energy and poetry within it. I use expressive colour and rhythmic design, combined with a stylized narrative of familiar scenes to translate the joy and wonder that I feel.
