As mentioned in our previous post, in the coming months we will be featuring the new full members of IWS Canada. The order in which they are featured is a simple reflection of their promptness in responding to our suggestion that they allow us to do so.
Vancouver-based artist Esmie Gayo McLaren , our second featured member, approaches art as an extension of her experiences. Her love for gardens, dance, people, and travel provides infinite inspiration, translating to paintings filled with sensitivity and movement. Each painting is a combination of instinctive and calculated interaction between her and the image.
McLaren is based in Vancouver, Canada, a metropolis of varied cultures. The lines are often blurred between her art and community work as she enjoys bridging cultures through her art.
Below is an example of Esmie’s work. You may view more at her website.
