Marilyn Peeters

I am a Vancouver Island Artist whose art reflects on the environment with a passion for nature. My husband and Imoved to Black Creek during the 80’s where I extended my knowledge in art working as a versatile artist throughout the Comox Valley. During that time, I volunteered with a theatre group where I gained extensive experience as a set designer and painter. With this experience, I was offered many mural jobs from the downtown Courtenay and Campbell River BC merchants. Soon after, I decided to complete my studies in Fine Art with North Island College in Courtenay and Emily Carr University where I completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2009. 

As a painter, I explore a sensorial perception of the BC landscapes through my painting process. The driving force in the creation of my work is elevated by my imagination, experiences, and spirituality. I am predominantly a landscape painter who likes to bring emotion from exaggerated colour and would like the viewer to experience their own personal experience while viewing each piece. Painting with different colour combinations such as contrasting colour allows a luminosity to vibrate and it is important to me that each piece has a strong sense of light. I like to paint scenes of the forest, ocean, cliffs, creeks, mountains, lakes, and florals. 

My work has won many awards. You may find my work exhibited in galleries, banks, restaurants, pubs, airports, and hospitals in Courtenay, Comox, Victoria, Sooke, Sidney, Campbell River, Nanaimo, and Vancouver. Also, my work is in private collections overseas such as in Dubai, UAE, London, England, U.S. and in Germany. My artist statement and work have been published with “Life as Human”, an online magazine in 2014.  I recently received my AFCA signature statues with the Federation of Canadian Artists.
