As part of Margaret River Open Studios, Ren Douglas will have a pop-up Studio here at ArtGeo from 10th - 25th September 2022. Born in the Netherlands, raised in Canada and now living in Western Australia for more than twenty years has given me the desire to look at the world with eyes which see beyond the surface appearance. Through watercolours, I can explore every rock, every leaf, every object shining in every ray of light. Watercolours as a medium, allows me to play with intense colour while capturing light. The colour literally floats in water while the light shines through from the paper. The drama of vivid tones living next to bright light and the endless details that go beyond representational art just captivate me. They are my passion as I paint. Highlights of past years include membership in the Federation of Canadian Artists, teaching art both in Canada and Western Australia and The Northern Territory and taking part in various exhibitions on both sides of the globe. My hope is that viewers of my watercolours will be enticed into each painting and each dramatic story of colour and light. This is my first time participating in this amazing event and I am excited to welcome visitors in the courtroom of the ArtGeo Cultural Complex.
