Mary Ann Laing "Happy Childhood"

1203 Broad Street, Victoria, B.C.

April 21, 2018 until May 3, 2018

Born in Victoria, Mary Ann has been painting for over 30 years. She enjoys a variety of mediums to work in, but oils are her favourite. Most of her subjects are bold and colourful renditions sensitively inspired by the landscape of Vancouver Island. Her paintings are among collections locally and internationally. A signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, her work has been included in many exhibitions locally over the past 25 years. ARTIST STATEMENT "I look at this show and think of my title for it. Happy Childhood… I know I am blessed with a happy childhood [and] I cherish my memories [of it]... I suspect most artists go to their easels with their own life story. Viewers may see something different. That's because we really only understand how we feel inside our own hearts about things, not someone else's heart. The ability to connect to others through exploring my own feelings never loses it's magic for me. I want my story to stir someone else's story. I want my love of colour and music and playing and, and.. I want all those things I pour into my canvas to stir something personal in the viewer. I want to be understood." - Mary Ann Laing
