Gillian olson art


My love of nature and architectural whimsy provide an inspiration and a focus for my work. I capture ideas and images with my camera and they inspire both my art and my blog.

I was born in Guernsey (Channel Islands) and moved to the Vancouver area as a child. Art has always been a pleasure but since retirement it is the passion and focus of my life. Watercolour is my chosen medium and I have taken a number of courses and workshops as I develop my range of skills.

I am the Convenor of the Brock House Art Group, a supportive, inclusive, diverse and thoroughly enjoyable group of artists.

I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists where I have had artworks in a number of juried shows. I have participated in group shows and had several solo shows in small commercial venues.
