Ariane Terez I grew up in a rural area of Vancouver Island and have been exploring the outdoors my whole life. Inspired by nature and the beauty of the coast I’m driven to paint some of the last remaining remote and wild places of the island. My acrylic paintings are a journey into this land. I strive to paint the untold stories and the mysteries of these places and convey the feeling of the elements in each one. I currently live in Port Alberni. I’m a graduate of the Arts Institute of Seattle but I’m primarily a self-taught painter.
