British Columbia and especially Vancouver Island is home to so many wonderful and talented local artists, which is not surprising since we live in such a beautiful place. There is such an array of different styles and mediums to choose from. We have wonderful local galleries in Victoria so if your on the market for some great artwork you don’t have to look far. One of the services I offer is sourcing out artwork which can be a difficult task since peoples tastes vary and artwork is very personal. But who doesn’t love a challenge! I love so many different artists but I am especially fond of this one – April Lacheur Check out her website here “I love the feeling of creating a flowing line with ink and a brush, the excitement and emotion bold colors evoke and the place I loose myself too each time my brush hits the canvas” – April Lacheur April lives in White Rock, BC. I love her style, use of colour and her west coast inspired paintings. I even had the pleasure of meeting her last year at the Interior Design West Show. Here are a few samples of her work. She also incorporates metal into her paintings which makes them so unique. How great would these be in a kids rooms or a medical office waiting room She does beautiful City and Landscapes I think this is one below is one of my very favs!!! I am looking for a piece for a very large space in my entry way and the 3 panel canvas would be perfect… If you are on a bit of a budget but love her paintings she also offers Giclee Canvas Prints which is a great way to get the look of an original print that won’t empty your pockets. See link here She has some many gorgeous paintings and prints to choose from it’s hard to decide on just one. If you can’t find something exact that you are looking for you can have a painting commissioned at a really reasonable price.
