Caissie, Annabelle

I have painted for many years in watercolor but I am now exploring the world of acrylics.  My journey with painting has been a long winding road which has been inspired by nature, street scenes, fishing villages and boats.  I am lucky to be able to visit the same rural areas dozens of times and enjoy the ever changing light, weather, season and time of day which provides me with never ending material to work from.  

I am inspired by the mood created by how sunlight transforms a flat subject into an exciting composition of light, reflections, interesting shadows and textures.  I use bold colours and realistic details to express freedom, mystery and beauty.
