Sheryl Sawchuk Artist Statement

I love to paint! Since I was a child who could barely hold a crayon until today I have never lost the fascination and enjoyment of using colours and lines to represent the people and things in the world around me.


I moved to Vancouver Island in 2003 and leapt into the challenge of becoming a full time artist, for subject matter I simply look around, living on Vancouver Island there is almost always something beautiful to see at every turn. It doesn’t matter if I’m on the beach, hiking in the woods, or in my garden, I like to examine things up close so I can explore the details and really appreciate the intricacies that I see.


I hope that when people view my art they can sense and share in the amazement and appreciation that I have for
the subject that I am so happy to experience and paint!
