Astrid Notte

Although born in Europe, Astrid has lived on Vancouver Island most of her life, including two years in the rugged beauty of Haida Gwaii. She holds a Masters in Art Education.
Currently, her focus is on acrylics and mixed media, and she experiments with technique to express the wild places that have seeped into her soul.
“Trees, especially evergreens in winter and spring, have always fascinated me. I am inspired by their subtle movement, feel their strong independent presence, and often sense an intimacy while in their midst.
“I seek to convey this connection through my art. Through sketching, taking photos and painting, I strive to express the joy, peace and spirit I feel when I am surrounded by nature.”
