Cold wax with oil


Patt works in many mediums including acrylic, encaustic and cold wax with oil. Her work includes imagery of people, landscape and abstraction. The layering of a variety of media offers a myriad of possibilities within her work; colour, line, and texture all play a role within her imagery. Her work is about the process – she loves layering, scraping, sanding, pouring and dripping. She uses many unorthodox tools and loves visits to the hardware store!  Patt facilitates workshops and a mentorship program in her Parksville Studio and is a Signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.

Janice creates paintings that interpret her strong appreciation of the Pacific Northwest environment where she lives and works as a full-time artist on Vancouver Island. Her focus is on the atmosphere of this area, inviting the viewer to participat and connect with the visual power of the land and sensuality of the landscape and works mainly in water-based media as an 'en plein aire' painter.

To do this, requires concentration and decisiveness. She loves a vibrant palette to brighten and communicate joy to the viewer.  View Hilary’s work at Note: The date has changed from May 13 to May 27, the second Meet Up of the month.
