Biography: 

I have always been interested in art.   Drawing and painting has been a lifelong hobby.  After receiving my B.A and B. Ed., I taught for EPSB. Throughout my career I taught art along with other subjects to Elementary school children and used my interest in art to create teaching materials. 

Throughout the years, I enrolled in many adult art classes with the City Centre for Arts, Grant MacEwan, U of A, and EPSB.  I experimented with various media – pencil drawing, watercolour, acrylic, and oil.

After I retired, I joined the Edmonton Art Club in 2009.  I started to work in oils and entered paintings at the EAC shows.  They included Misericordia Hospital, Scotia Place, the Ottewell Centre, and The Japanese Cultural Centre.  I have sold work to private collections in Edmonton.

Most recently, I have been working with watercolours.  It is a medium that suits my style.  My paintings show the world as I see it.  I am intrigued by light.  Not only does it give shape and colour to objects but it creates shadows, reflections, and creates mood in a scene.  The transparency of watercolour portrays this.

My paintings show everyday human experiences.  They bring pleasure to me and I hope viewers can relate to them.

Biography: 

 

When I retired twelve years ago, I decided to get serious about art. I enrolled with the U of A Extension and eventually got my certification in Fine Arts in both the painting and drawing streams. Since then, I have really enjoyed this wonderful pastime.

I have dabbled in many mediums, but tend to go back to acrylic and I still do a bit of monotyping.  I have enjoyed all my artist friends and look forward to a few more years at the easel.

paintbrush as he attempts to capture vivid landscapes and their inhabitants.

MaryLou Olsen

Biography: 

My love of painting began in the 1960’s taking my first art course with Harry Savage at the University of Alberta. Since then, I have had the wonderful opportunity of living in many diverse areas of Alberta that have inspired and enabled me to draw on those experiences of the natural and urban world. It has also allowed me to participate in many workshops and courses at the University of Alberta, Red Deer College, Calgary Continuing Education and through the honored mentoring of gifted and inspirational artists.

Capturing the excitement and discovery that initially drew me to the subject matter is the primary goal of my art. Hopefully in the course of portraying the beauty of dramatic light and color, it will enable the viewer to achieve that same joy of amazement and wonderment I initially felt. Paintings of the old masters and impressionists have influenced my style of painting; layering paint and attention to light and color. Watercolor painting is also a passion for me as it lends itself to the ethereal beauty of flowers; a favorite subject.

To date my artworks are mostly held in private collections with the exception of “Pine Along the St. Lawrence River” which is held by the City of St. Albert. This painting was painted from my photograph taken along a boat cruise among the Thousand Islands of the St. Lawrence River, Ontario, Canada.
