Heavens Declare IV by Jenn Williamson.

Discover your inner artist

Thursday Artist Talk with Langley’s Jenn Williamson on June 2 at the Surrey Art Gallery.

Can you be an artist if you don’t like drawing or you struggle with perfectionism and anxiety? “Absolutely,” says Langley artist Jenn Williamson

Join her as she gives a Thursday Artist Talk called “Discover Your Artistic Voice” on June 2 from 7:30-9 p.m. at the Surrey Art Gallery.

She’ll share how she “discovered” she was an artist and discuss how trusting your intuition can be healing and lead you to find your own artistic voice.

With humility and humour, Williamson will give the lowdown on the good, the bad, and the ugly of being an artist.

Williamson has taken a path that has been unconventional. Not only is she a professional artist, but she is also a businesswoman, entrepreneur, wife, and mother.

As you hear her speak of the twists and turns her life has taken, you will find yourself gaining a new appreciation for your own journey.

Williamson paints abstract and impressionist scenes.

Her first art show was in 2011 and this past April, she exhibited her work in New York.

A fascination with texture has motivated Williamson’s pursuit of unconventional training and the acquisition of products not yet discovered by mainstream artists.

Her unique painting style is a striking convergence of refined texture, exquisite colours, and luxurious patinas.

She allows intuition to guide her creative process and does not rely on reference photos to inspire her work.

Williamson was born in White Rock. She now resides in the Fraser Valley with her husband and two boys.

There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. Refreshments are provided.

This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with the Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.

The Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave.
