Yvonne Maximchuk ~ Painter, Potter, Author
Yvonne Maximchuk, born in Bralorne B.C. 1952 has been a working artist her entire life. Her subject material and style vary in response to the astonishing array of subjects to paint and ways to paint them. A mastery of expressive watercolor has been the mainstay of her artistic endeavors for many years. In larger acrylic on canvas paintings Yvonne explores themes stimulated by not only the aquatic ‘place’ where she calls home but also the history, geography, flora and fauna of the oceanside world she inhabits. As well she is a potter, engaged in the continual challenge of designing new and beautiful functional ware for daily use.
Yvonne has a natural teaching talent and fulfilled a dream of creating an art retreat at her home/studio near Echo Bay. She has a strong belief in the healing power of self–expression and promotes and supports the artistic development of everyone she meets. With Bill Proctor, Yvonne has co-authored two published books, “Full Moon Flood Tide” and “Tide Rips and Back Eddies” Her own autobiography, “Drawn To Sea”, was published in 2013, chronicling her thirty years’ experience homesteading, fishing and painting the Broughton Archipelago and the BC coast. Yvonne’s new colouring book, “Colour the British Columbia Coast” is available now.
Enjoy an educational studio tour with Yvonne and potter, Albert Munro, at SeaRose Studio, commission or purchase your own work of art and take a peek into the creative life of these year-round residents. Visitors are most welcome.
