Description

Joan Tovey's watercolors are those beautiful flowers you find on the forest floor.

She is a sometime miniaturist with incredibly precise details of a secret life on the ground or in the trees. The miniatures are very clear and colorful and my pictures cannot do them justice.

She is a listed Canadian artist since 1978 and is represented by:

National Gallery of Canada - Library and Archives / Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography.

She is a friend to the great Nori Peter, painter of the Inuit, and enjoyed having exhibitions together.

“My hope is my paintings will awaken the viewer to a realization that he or she must try to preserve this fragile wilderness beauty throughout our wonderful country Canada,” notes Mrs. Tovey.

“In my portrayals of birds and wildflowers, I try to evoke within the viewer, especially the urban viewer, a sense of discovering secluded scenes of untouched, exquisite beauty...the beauty of wilderness.”

She has been creating these beautiful works for over 40 years. Her works usually come with a description in her hand on the back.
