Event Archive - Drawings and Prints: M.G Harvie

Fri. June 29th 2018 - Fri. August 3rd 2018 Imagine That! Artisans' Designs Duncan BC (All Ages)
Opening: Friday 29th June 2018
M.G. (Gayle) Harvie is a self-taught artist with a love of all things art.

She has worked in a number of artistically diverse and creative jobs; as an advertising layout artist, retail store decorator / merchandise display curator. After 30 years of a busy family and work life; there came a chance to return to grade one, on a field trip with her oldest grandchild's grade one class to the Leighton Art Institute in Calgary’s foothills. Everyone in the little class was given a small drawing pad and pencil to go out and sketch what you see.

That field trip opportunity seven years ago re-inspired a long dormant love of drawing. Gayle uses a variety of papers and pencils, graphite pencils most predominantly, as well as watercolour pencils to create her original art works.

Inspiration comes from life experiences, nature, animals, memories. Her philosophy, not unlike many artists, is ‘Art should speak to your soul, remind you, inspire you and make you smile.’
