Joy Peirson, Painter

#10-841 E Hastings St (C11)

What's your medium of choice and why?

Acrylic or watercolour. Both are such great mediums to work in. I usually sketch with my brush, so watercolour is perfect for this, and then I use pen and ink over the top of the image to add more detail. Acrylic is so bold and vibrant I fall in love with the colours I can use.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Inspiration comes every time I open my eyes. Vancouver and BC especially are stunning. The city has an amazing juxtaposition of industrial images set against a backdrop of mountains and water. BC has some of the most jawdropping scenery you could ever find. I am blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

What new works will you have at the Crawl?

I will have some new images of False Creek.

What's your favourite thing about the Crawl?

The different artists.

Do you listen to music while you are working?

I listen to classical or blues.
