Marilyn Peeters? peaceful paintings are inspired by the Canadian landscape with her unique style and use of colour. She often incorporates cabins into her gardens and forest landscapes and waterscapes scenes.
She is a multi-media, expressionist artist located in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
“My connection with nature has been engraved in my soul since childhood. As a child I remember spending many hours alone in the forest behind my parents? house lost in my own imaginary games and thoughts. The forest became my extension of home, an area that gave me a release from family dynamics in the home. I seemed to have found a sense of peace in the woods at a young age.”
Marilyn and her family moved to the Comox Valley in the early 1980?s. Her art can be found throughout the community from designing and painting sets for a local theatre group, murals for businesses in Courtenay and Campbell River, showings in art galleries, airports and restaurants across Vancouver Island and in Vancouver.
Marilyn has a Fine Arts Diploma through North Island College and in 2009 her Bachelors of Fine Arts with Emily Carr University.? Recently she has received a AFCA Status with the Federation of Canadian Artists.
She now paints full time in her studio.
