Joy Peirson: Scenes of Richmond  

Joy always had a strong interest in the arts; creativity was and continues to be a major passion in her life. She obtained her Fine Arts Diploma at SFU and taught teach Art/Drama/English for many years. Now retired, She exhibits regularly and is a member of the Semiahmoo Art Society and the Vancouver Sketch Club.

Artist’s Statement: I am continually inspired by the Lower Mainland and its setting. My studio is next to a building site, so I see constant change every day. My method is to create the same image several times in different formats.  I use smaller scale watercolour sketching to capture the first impressions, before moving to a larger format, adjusting composition and colour as I progress. One of my latest pieces, a fishing boat leaving Steveston, started as a 5 x 7” watercolour sketch and is seen here as a 36 x 48” acrylic.  I love bold, vibrant, color. I strive to represent my view of the world in a colourful way.  I am not a representational painter but the line and composition of my images is really important to me.
