Kaslo's Suzanne Maclean will show her work at this year's ArtWalk.

Canada’s landscape scene through a Kaslo artist’s eyes

ArtWalk begins tonight and will include work by Suzanne Maclean.

Suzanne Maclean has always been in love with landscape, from her very first excursion into the northern Canadian wilderness, to her travels across Canada and abroad.

The landscape has always been there, inspiring interest in colour and movement, shape and pattern.

Coming from an artistic family, she was always encouraged to become involved in the arts.

She worked behind the scenes in theatre and music, exploring literature in the off hours, until greener pastures called and she became nomadic.

Following her love of landscape, she travelled to England and France, and settled in Ireland for a while, before returning to Canada where she lived in various towns and cities across Canada, from Cape Breton Island to Nelson, before heading further north into the BC interior.

Maclean now lives with her husband in Kaslo where she paints in a small studio, inspired by the landscape that surrounds her.

Maclean’s work can be seen at Kutenai Clothing Co. during ArtWalk, from July 6 to  August 31.
