Briefly about the Artist Terrill Welch

Terrill Welch’s oil paintings frequently showcase the beautiful, mysterious and rugged southwest coast around her home on Mayne Island B.C. as well as paintings from her travels. Though locally appreciated, Terrill Welch is internationally collected.  Her paintings can be found in the homes of art collectors throughout Canada and the United States as well as in Australia, England, France, Italy, Norway and Switzerland.

Terrill Welch’s work is in collections that also include such renowned Canadian landscape painters as Emily Carr, A.Y. Jackson and Lawren Harris.

Born in the village of Vanderhoof in north-central British Columbia, Terrill Welch was invited into an adult painting class when she was fourteen years old. Terrill Welch has taken several college-level courses in drawing and painting. She now teaches the art of oil painting from life in natural light using water mixable oils through independent study online.

Terrill Welch… Whether it is the ocean waves, the rocks and mountains in the distance, the clouds especially or a special tree you give it a life -not just a coloured  dab of pigment as I have come to vision most paintings.  You give it the feeling of being there and being happy there in your work… You know and love the places you paint!  This comes across to me clearly. ~ Dennis Rogers

Briefly about the Artist Jody Waldie

Jody Waldie was born on the West Coast of British Columbia and is held firmly there by the roots of its natural beauty. 

A career in education, with various teaching and school administrator positions, provided much time for encouraging and facilitating the artistic development of her students and less time for her own artistic ventures. 

Jody now resides on Mayne Island surrounded by nature, fulfilled with the joy of grandchildren, critters, her partner for life and her painting. 

She feels a strong visual, emotional and physical connection with the natural world and represents this for the viewer through use of colour, shape and value in her images.
