About the artist          ELAINE MORTON

Elaine Morton paints from her Metchosin studio on Vancouver Island.  The beaches, woods and meadows nearby provide endless inspiration for her delicate and detailed watercolours.  Her subject matter ranges from the indepth study of a shell to the broad strokes of the Juan de Fuca Strait.  Growing up on the island has given her a greater appreciation of its natural beauty.  As an environmentalist she hopes that her artwork will foster protection of the island that we may take for granted.

 

Elaine was born in the Cowichan Valley and after highschool graduation, moved to Victoria.  She has batchelor degrees in Fine Arts (1980) and Social Work (1992) from the University of Victoria.
