Oil and Acrylic
Mostly self taught, I began painting in 2016 and have never looked back. Painting is as important to me as the air I breathe. I must always paint.
As a visual artist, I feel incredibly privileged to live in the beautiful interior of BC. Surrounded by mountains, desert, plateaus, ranch land, grasslands and meadows, and a variety of pristine lakes inspire me constantly. I often will nestle into my lakeside cabin to reboot and refresh my soul, and this always generates a flow of creativity within me.
Wildlife and animals are a special attraction and I am very fond of capturing their essence in my artwork as well.
I normally paint in oil because I enjoy working alla prima (wet in wet) enjoying the buttery flow of the paints and creating textures within the vibrant colours. I also paint in acrylic and will use this medium when time is short.
I welcome commission work and have successfully completed many pet portraits.

Every painting has a piece of my personality in its work. I believe Art enriches and enhances the lives of those who seek beauty and truth.

Acrylic Paintings: abstracted landscapes, portraits. Nature, light, colour, texture. Live painting. Digital and AI-assisted photo manipulation.
My husband and I moved to Kamloops in 2015 and it was here that my love for art, specifically painting, was rekindled. Live painting was new to me, but I now adore combining performance with visual art.

From inspiration to evaluation, I adore every detail about creating. I draw, I plan, I sew, I face paint! I use my skills to help people find theirs. I especially love helping children believe in magic through illustrations, crafts, and theatrics. I do this by coordinating events like my Mermaid Shell-ebration or Princess Prep Summer Camp.

Mary Boychuk is a relatively new watercolor artist. As a young mom, she dabbled in acrylics for a few years and then things somehow went by the wayside while raising young children. Three years ago, she and her husband retired and moved to Kamloops from Edmonton. In her most recent two years, she has been doing watercolor paintings and has found a new way of expression in it. Most days, you will find her at her paint station working on yet another creation. Life is good, as they say !
