An original painting inspired by the beautiful fall light and colour in Kananaskis on a fall camping trip.
Elizabeth (Libby) Parsons
Born into an artistic family in Québec, Libby started art at a young age. Although studying art at school, including classes at the Ontario College of Art, Libby’s life took a different path as her family moved to India where she studied Nursing. She finished her degree at Queens University and then married a Military Officer. Their years together have included two children and involved travelling the globe, living in Europe, the Mediterranean and across Canada. Libby maintained an interest in art and studied wherever she could in spite of frequent moves – first year Fine Arts at the University of
Alberta, watercolour and acrylic courses, etching, life drawing and art history. She painted and sold her art on these travels and her paintings can be found in private and public collections around the world including that of the Belgian Royal Family. Now living in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Libby takes delight in the rhythm of the rows of vines, the gentle hills covered in sage brush and the ever changing colours of the lakes. Farther afield, on camping trips, Libby captures the incredible landscapes of Norther BC, Yukon, Haida Gwaii, the Prairies and more locations to come!
