Christy Sverre was born in Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Victoria where she remembers the first moment she abstracted from reality. A passion was sparked and over the ensuring years she explored a variety of means to express herself. This included jewelry, pottery, paper mache, folk art and finally painting.
Her husband’s career took them to many places including South East Asia where she raised their two children, embraced the changes in her life and explored the art of the region. Becoming a docent at the Singapore Museum of Art guiding tours of South East Asian art encouraged her to return to her passion of painting. She studied under a number of respected artists in Singapore and Canada to ignite and refine her style.
This has led her to create a body of work of expressive semi-abstracts displaying the vitality she sees in the sky and on the sea. Expressive brush strokes and a bold use of colour define her style. There is an energetic and uplifting feeling about her work.
Christy lives and works in Gibsons, BC, surrounded by the sea and its incredible changing skies.
