Christy Sverre is a contemporary artist with a Fine Art degree from the University of Victoria.


Christy's artistic focus revolves around capturing the essence and vitality of her beloved subjects, the ocean and florals.


The inspiration for her abstract seascapes originates from sailing adventures along the West Coast. Constantly observing and sketching during journeys from harbor to harbor, Christy keenly senses the ocean's energy, which can transform dramatically from day to day. The waterways of the Strait of Georgia, Howe Sound, and the Gulf Islands provide her creative wellspring, and her deep connection with these waters is evident in her paintings.


Christy's art not only explores the depths of the ocean but also delves into the extraordinary world of florals. Her fascination lies in portraying the energy and resilience of life within them. Her florals emerge from the chaos of stems and leaves, breaking through these constraints, reaching out for the sun. In this tangled beauty, she finds a metaphor for perseverance and growth.


The cohesive thread weaving through Christy's body of work lies in her brush strokes, lines, textures, and colors, all infused with her collective energy and passion on canvas.


With a portfolio that spans both local and international exhibitions, Christy's dynamic studio is a constantly evolving space, filled with fresh works of art. Visitors are warmly welcomed to explore her collection, providing a glimpse into her creative journey.
