The need to explore and search for a way to describe an innate visceral response to vegetation has led to this exhibition of mostly floral pieces.

Blanche Johnston’s work offers exceptional and fresh views of landscape and florals, expressing the energy of environment with nuanced yet powerful strokes.

She creates using acrylic or oil paints with glazes or impasto texture onto canvas or paper mounted on panels, or she fuses many layers of encaustic medium onto cradled birch panels. Her aim is to portray a curiosity about place and time.

Blanche primarily works from sketches of her own photographs, plain air sketches and also from still life.

She is a Canadian artist living near Beaver Creek, Sk and her work can be found in private and public collections across the country as well as abroad.
