Suzanne Heron just another addtion to our already elite group of Artists at the Shaw Ocean Discover Sea of Love, Sip and Bid

 

I am an artist with a passion for community. After 30 years in community development and co-owning a small town toy store, I am using art to celebrate places that people love to be part of. Thinking about our summer place, used by 4 generations, I realized my connection to that place gives me deep roots. A sense of belonging, being part of a community, is critical for all of us. So I am still building community, by using art to document and share local places that have special meaning for people. The process of building the annual Victoria & Circle Tour Calendar – discovering favourite places and meeting people who love where they live – has given me a strong sense of home.

 I paint digitally, using a Wacom tablet and stylus, linked to my computer. I can tell the tablet to be any kind of surface: canvas, watercolour paper, wet, dry, etc. I tell the stylus to be whatever brush is needed. I paint in layers, starting with a wash or blocking layer, and working from the background up to the foreground, just like with paint on canvas. I can “dip into” the colours of a reference photo, and if something doesn’t look right, just erase it. It’s very cool!
