Animals & Botanicals & Metallic Leaf

Capture the essence of the plants and animals you love!

Create whimsical environments for your animals, be they pets or from the wild.  You could also paint trees and flowers and focus entirely on their beauty to create  landscapes, real or imaginary. You can combine them both!

You will be guided through a light-hearted style of painting using acrylic and acrylic washes. The paintings can be finished with gold, silver or copper leaf.

All levels welcome

Jean Bradbury

Jean Bradbury’s acrylic paintings celebrate the micro world by honouring the small things we love. Tiny plants become giants. Beloved animals are painted with gold leaf surrounds.

Bradbury spent her childhood in New Brunswick and now splits her time between Seattle and Vancouver. She studied fine art at Queen’s University and illustration in Seattle. Her practice includes many large commissioned pieces for hospitals, schools, and restaurants. She travels frequently to the Middle East where she teaches natural textile dyeing. She has taught art through her own organization, Studio Syria, in refugee camps in Jordan as well as at the Pratt Fine Arts Center – Seattle, The Kirkland Arts Center, The Sedona Arts Center and others.

She is looking forward to returning to Metchosin for a second season of teaching.
