North Saanich, Canada
Mixed Media - Photography
Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, is one of the world's most beautiful and scenic islands. Most of the northern half contains Cape Breton Highlands National Park, an area of world-famous beauty, with mountains, valleys, streams, barrens, wildlife and all accessible via the Cabot Trail, the road which encircles the park and entices tourists by the thousands. Especial beautiful is the autumn, when the hardwood trees turn into a blaze of reds, oranges and yellows. This view is on the western side at Pleasant Bay, looking down at the Gulf of St. Lawrence from MacKenzie Mountain. A little farther along, you can look straight down at the community of Pleasant Bay at sea level.
A little about me:
My name is Janet but I go by Jann, and I am originally from Ontario, Canada and have lived on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, since 1985.
I love the seacoast and mountains, so many of my photos are from British Columbia, Alberta, Vancouver Island, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island. My main photo themes are sea, coastal,villages, mountains, trees, lakes, waterfalls, flowers, nature,wildlife, birds, animals, landscapes, sunsets, and the great National Parks of Canada such as Jasper,Banff, Waterton, Cape Breton Highlands, Yoho, Glacier, Kootenay,Mt. Robson, Strathcona and others.
In the art world, I was initially trained as a Commercial Artist and Illustrator and eventually explored many other methods of art/style as well as other mediums. I work in pencil, ink, acrylics, watercolor and oil pastels. I have also enjoyed mosaic design and application, floor murals, wall murals, collapsible screens, floor cloths, graphic design. Explored sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, hand painted furniture, refinishing old frames with gold leaf or faux finishes, interior design and interior decorating.
With the advent of digital cameras I came to really enjoy photography both as an artistic expression as well as a foundation for capturing interesting and exciting compositions to be painted later.
My recent creative endeavour was graduating from a certified Cosmetology Program (hairstylist and esthetics) in March 2009.
