Our oldest daughter, Lexi, has always had an amazing talent for art. In her early twenties she took a number of courses at the Vancouver Island School of Art. Since then, she has gone to do other things, treating her art as first and foremost, a hobby.
Over the past few years, however, Lexi has gone through an incredible journey of self growth and awareness (which involved, among other things, living in Fiji for almost a year). Lexi came to the realization that to her art can (and should be) more than a hobby. This last year she took an advanced course at the Vancouver Island School of Art which helped her to develop her skills at creating an art series and to learn how to get her work out in the community.
Over the past five weeks Lexi’s art has hung in the Emily Carr Library. We think it looks just amazing there! Part of Lexi’s artistic journey has involved embracing the fact that the art she enjoys painting is the art she should be painting! It is so wonderful to see her thriving in this way! Lexi’s art is provocative, technically exquisite, and like nothing we have seen before. It will be hanging up in the library until this Friday (June 25th). We recommend checking out the exhibit if you have the chance- there is nothing like seeing these paintings in person.
Remi, Dana, and baby Gabriel checked out Lexi’s exhibit this weekend and fell in love with the painting, Feels Like December Knows Me Well. They purchased it as the first piece of art the two of them have bought together since moving into their new condo last September. Congratulations to Remi and Dana and congratulations to Lexi!
What do you think of this beautiful art? What do you see in it?
