Artist Workshop Featuring – Iris Low


The Deer Lake Gallery are pleased to offer you the opportunity to experience a live painting demonstration by Iris Low on Saturday, February 21st @ 2pm, Deer Lake Gallery.

Iris’ work focuses on two things: the brush stroke and the visualization of a meditation called Mindfulness that has helped her during bouts of mental illness. She intuitively applies paint in thick strokes; it tells the story of the emotions she is experiencing; but she is also influenced by the world around her. Colour is the expression of the emotion, the movement is the changing of the mindset, of moods. Inspired by pointillism and colour fields, she looks for the effect of colours on each other during the process.

As an adult, Iris studied and apprenticed with Artist and Creative, Jan de Kok in Culemborg, The Netherlands. In 1991 she made a permanent move to the West Coast of Canada. She augmented her training at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Iris has also worked for many years as a Faux Finisher, Graphic Designer, Illustrator and provided companies with clipart.

Co-winner, with Therese Lydia Joseph, of the Don S. Williams Grant 2013 from Fans for the Arts on the North Shore which recognizes the artistic contributions and accomplishment of North Shore artists who have demonstrated a maturity of talent.
