Born in Vancouver, B.C., Darlene spent most of her childhood drawing trees and flowers. She majored in art at school and continued developing her skills with classes following graduation. Never far from art, she found time to paint and draw while raising a family, but became serious about her commitment when she turned to watercolour in 1992. Attending numerous workshops and classes, Darlene has developed a personal style and a deft hand with this challenging medium.
Her life-long love of nature, her gentle spirit and her delight in painting can be seen in her poetic and lyrical landscapes, wildlife and exquisite florals. Whatever the subject, there is always a sense of peace conveyed in her work.
Darlene has exhibited widely, has had one-woman shows and participated in many juried shows in B.C. If you have a well-loved place or a special “something” that deserves to be painted, Darlene is available for commissions.
Darlene is also an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
