Portrait by Alex Carr. 10″ x 8″, pastel pencil

I am a Visual Artist and Illustrator.

I was born in Ottawa ON and in my early twenties I moved to Montreal QC. I always loved visual art and in my mid twenties I decided to go to school for it. I attended the Illustration
and Design program at Dawson College in MTL and really learned a lot in those three years.

After college I spent time freelancing until my husband and I moved near Seattle WA for a few years where I explored the incredible West Coast, and  spent a lot of time figure drawing and doing art in various forms. In 2021 we moved up to BC where I have taken an interest in acrylic landscapes. I love the use of colour, pattern and attempt to capture some of the beauty of the west coast in my work. I feel blessed to live in such an awe inspiring place, and in my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors- especially on my bicycle. We moved to Parksville this spring, I already love the natural spaces here and I have met some very welcoming and creative people, so I am excited to pursue my artistic journey oceanside.

Ros was born in Western Australia and lived her early years in a farming community South of Perth.  She moved to Canada in 1967 and most of her working life was in Vancouver.  Ros’s artistic career was originally in stained glass work, then quilting.  She retired to Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island in 2006.

More recently, Ros has taken several courses in both sketch and acrylics and continues to paint regularly with a group of like-minded artists.  She has become a member of OCAC and DeCosmos art groups to widen her contacts in the artistic community.
