    Telling Stories through the Paint Brush


    Never leave home without your sketch book.


    Growing up on the Alberta Prairies was the beginning of a close connection to nature, leading to the fun of capturing 

    nature on canvas, for Lyla.


    Art appreciation at the one room country school she attended was a small packet of postcard paintings of the noted Canadian "Group of Seven" artists. A.Y. Jackson was her favorite. Thus was the beginning of her artistic journey

    with the encouragement of a teacher and her mother.  She, many years later did meet A. Y. Jackson at Port Radium, NWT, Canada. He was there on a plein air excursion.


    Retiring from a Nursing Career allowed time to return to painting after many years of setting it aside. Joining Evergreen Association of Fine Arts was a turning point in finally getting back to painting.


    STATEMENT: My medium is primarily acrylic, occasionally returning to oils. Subject matter ranges from Northwest

    Beach scenes to landscape and florals in impressionistic style. I am intrigued with abstract work, and  very much enjoying the journey of that genre. Figures are very often incorporated in my work.


    I am often told that my paintings tell a story. I intend them to do that.
