Colleen J Dyson , SCA, AFCA SCA

 

Being born and raised in the heart of the Okanagan Valley has offered Colleen many areas of inspriation.  Her technique is still evolving. Painting realism for the first few years and earning a few awards was inspiring, but the need to push and grow was overwhelming for her at time. Changing her medium to oils at this tim was very beneficial and she has never looked back.

Using a loose black canvas technique has proved quite successful for her in that it adds drama to the painting and is a good way to exaggerate the lights and darks in the piece. She had been studying some of the old master's paintings and this was a way of getting those lovely darks and solid forms into her own work.  

Colleen holds memberships in several art organizations, and heads up a local art group. As a professional artist, she has had solo exhibitions and participated in group shows in Canada and abroad. She has won awards in international juried professional art exhibitions and online competitions.

 Her work hangs in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States, Costa Rica, and the United Kingdom, and has been featured in a variety of publications.
