WELCOME TO CREATE ART STUDIO
If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
-Vincent Van Gogh
I am a local artist with a background in early childhood education, two passions which I have combined to help bring out the inner artist in students across Prince George and have been doing so for over 25 years. With this I established CREATE art studio to provide students of all ages with a place to feel safe and comfortable to freely express themselves through art. My students have been able to display their art regularly across Prince George at local venues such as the Prince George Public Library and SpeeDee Printers, many of whom have gone to win numerous awards in Canada wide art competitions such as the Natures Wild Neighbours Society (NWNS) "Get To Know Contest". With decades of knowledge and experience in a variety of mediums, my students are able to freely explore the full range of their artistic capabilities. Whether you are looking for a personal opportunity to create masterpieces or explore your artistic side with friends, I offer both private and group classes in order to inspire and enhance everyone’s creative spark and spirit.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
We believe every artist needs adequate space in which to create, and that space should inspire and support their creative process. It is important that place to have just the right environment, and that is what we strive to provide at CREATE art studio. If you’re looking for a place that nurtures your artistic journey, look no further: we’re here and we can’t wait to see what you can create.
An artist should freely use whatever materials they please.
Rich colour and vibrant hues, oil paint provides the artist with much more flexibility due to its longer drying time allowing for adjustments throughout the painting journey
Fluidity is key when working with watercolours. The transparent nature of the pigments make it possible to build breathtaking gradients.
