Featured Artist – Joanne Ayley

I have always wanted to draw and paint and I’ve dabbled in many art forms over the years while making a living as a writer and graphic designer. Since moving to BC from Ontario in 2008, my love for making art has been supercharged. There is certainly no shortage of inspiration here. Landscapes, flowers and wildlife – especially our local birds – are my primary subjects, although I often am drawn to interesting buildings too.
