Christy Sverre paints her subjects in a playful manner using vibrant colours and bold lines. Her colourful and energetic scenes of boats bring delight and recognition to the viewer. Her seascapes are full of power and movement in honour of the ocean and the horizon. Florals speak of overcoming chaos and restriction bringing joy to the viewer.
As well as a degree in Fine Art Christy has studied with many artists over the years. She sees most of her development as the product of consistent hard work. Symbols and icons frequently make their way into her art as well as her experiences sailing around the local waters where she gathers her ideas in her many sketchbooks.
Acrylic and oil with cold wax are her mediums and her diverse tools range from paintbrushes to scrapers. Working in multiple layers with vigorous marks she draws from her enthusiasm and intuition to guide her artwork to completion.
Christy works from her studio and gallery overlooking Gibson's harbour on Canada’s west coast.
Her works are in private collections in Europe, Asia and North and South America.
