We have experienced founding members and new members, all with amazing talent in the many fields of illustration, such as botanical, digital and children’s book illustration.
Our members work with a broad range of mediums, including acrylic, collage, pen and ink, watercolour, glass beadwork and digital art.
Typically, our members work in the solitude of their respective studios, yet each year the group gathers to create a theme show. One such project has been our longstanding commitment to create colourful pieces for the Times Colonist at New Year’s. This year’s theme is Flora and Fauna of Victoria.
Our plan was to illustrate some of the many wonderful plants and animals from our area.
Recent works, including select pieces from Flora and Fauna of Victoria, will be exhibited from Feb. 13 to 24 at Coast Collective Art Centre, 103-318 Wale Rd., Colwood. Reception: Saturday, Feb. 16, from 1-3 p.m.
