Rainforest Arts is pleased to announce our November 2016 Featured Artist: Catherine Taron
Catherine is self-taught in water media techniques. She is inspired by the geography and natural and cultural history of Vancouver Island. Her painting includes landscapes in acrylic and watercolour with a focus on the changing moods and energies of the coast and its communities.
My intention is to explore painting with a light hand and a limited palette. While my work is primarily representational, it is not to replicate a place exactly. Instead, my paintings try to capture a personal feeling of a place I know, with a specific memory or story in mind. As a developing artist, and with each new piece, I am learning to paint and live more fully in my own creative voice.
To view Catherine’s work as well as the work of many other Vancouver Island artists, please plan to visit Rainforest Arts often. Our winter hours are Monday – Saturday 10 am – 5 pm.
