 Lois GoodnoughLois Goodnough

“I am an intuitive painter at heart and I paint with my heart, with delightful fabrics, patterns and flowers dancing in my head.  But also with a critical eye for colour and a fascination for detail which I hope takes my viewers on an imaginative journey through my paintings.”

Lois is largely a self-taught artist who primarily paints in acrylic and embraces an intuitive painting process in her work. She has taken several workshops, both local and on-line, over the past few years while she explored techniques to find her own unique style.  She uses negative and reductive painting techniques to create her imaginative and eclectic figurative and floral work.  She loves to play with colour and texture.  With a background as a seamstress and textile artist, Lois loves to detail the collision of colours and mark-making to give the work a textile-like appearance.  It is evident through her paintings that her love of fabric and doll-making has come full circle.

Lois has been actively painting and showing her work on Vancouver Island for the past 4 years through the FCA as well as other local venues, the Try It Art Gallery in Bragg Creek, Alberta and the Back to the Picture Gallery in San Francisco.  Her work has sold locally, within Canada and North America.  Recently she sold three artworks to a production company for use in a television series which will air in 2020.  She has received two Honourable Mentions for her figurative work from exhibits at the FCA Vancouver Gallery.

Lois has shown her work at TOSH, Art Alchemy’s Square Foot Show, the MAC, and the Ladysmith Gallery. She has participated in the Central Island Studio Tour in 2018 and 2109.    Lois is a supporter of The Old Schoolhouse Arts Centre (TOSH) where she is a Volunteer.  She is also a member of Oceanside 11 Art group.
Her Art Studio, located in French Creek, is open by appointment.
