Arlene Nesbitt

Born in Alberta
Lived in BC, United States, England and Scotland
BA summa cum laude and post graduate work in art and psychology
Classes and workshops in oil painting, lithography, collographs, cyanotypes, fibrearts
Worked in elementary education and art therapy
Travelled in Mexico, France, India and Russia enjoying different landforms, people, art and food not necessarily in that order.

My interest in photography began while living on a tiny island in
the Hebrides. The main theme of my images was archetypes as revealed in close-ups of unusual rock formations. My work was shown and sold on the Island of Iona, Mull and in Glasgow.

In 1995 I returned to BC. After taking a course in Photoshop I began to work digitally with layers of rubbings, monoprints, encaustic and photos.

Sometime in 2011, feeling the need to paint, I began to experiment with large watercolours, distressing the paper, using other media and digital prints.
