Meet the artists/owners of Arbour Heights Studio
I am an abstract expressionist painter. When I begin painting I face a blank canvas and generally have no idea where the finished painting will end up. That is part of the excitement, frustration and journey in the process
I will experiment freely at the beginning. I love asymmetrical shapes, bold colours, marks and energetic rhythms.
I keep adding layers until something excites me or captures my attention. I step back frequently to see what is going on in the painting .
I work in a series of four or five paintings at one time. This stops me from fixating on just one and informs what I might do in another.
When a painting is completed the canvas surface has many layers which adds to its depth, nuance and complexity
I am excited each time I go into the studio to paint, because I look forward to the new things I will discover that day.
JP is my husband, artist and co-owner of Arbour Heights Studio .
Here is something about him in his own words
After flirting with art for years before, I finally committed to it in 2016.
It has been a perfect outlet for all the wacky creativity I have bottled up inside
I wanted to create art but I also wanted to share my art with the community.
With a little research I was able to fashion frames and began to create outdoor art that could be viewed as people passed by.
Next step was to introduce art to the kids and daycare groups in our neighbourhood.
The fairy tree was born shortly after with a weekly cartoon painting and a rainbow surprise behind the fairy door.
My outdoor art is available here as fine art prints
My indoor gallery paintings can be seen here
I hope you enjoy my wacky creations as much as I enjoy making them.
When you decide to buy a painting, you are not just purchasing art. Something in the piece excites or intrigues you. This is your connection to the artist’s soul, heart and a small piece of his/her life.
Your new art purchase will enrich your life and be enjoyed for many years to come.
