Exhibiting from January 9 to March 3, 2023
Phyllis Vernon paints in a variety of media and styles – her art is an exciting and constantly changing event as she explores and experiments with her love of colour, texture, light, form, media, and a wide variety of subjects. Originally a watercolour artist, she has broadened her scope to include acrylics, inks, graphite, collage and hand-pulled prints, blending realism and abstraction. Phyllis travels extensively and often paints from her photographs and sketches. She has participated in workshops with professional artists in Canada, United States, France and Spain, as well as extensive reading and research on her own. She accepts commissions and delights clients by capturing in paint a favourite location, often an ancestral home in Europe.
