PAGE SAMIS - ARTIST IN WEST VANCOUVER SHARING MY JOURNEY AS A TRUE ARTIST
We are proud to announce Page Samis to the Honorary Members section of DSC. Gallery of Canadian Figurative Masters 2014.... Page has been painting before she was 6 yrs old. She has the family background of a talented grandmother and mother. Books of Master Artists were read to her at a young age thus capturing her heart. Since 1958, she has studied with other artists and still to this day can recall what she learned. She studied art in a classical way at the Vancouver School of Art, graduating in Life Sculpture with honors in Color Theory. She also studied lost wax, lithography and masters in drawing at San Miguel Allende in Mexico, as well as studying drawing at the Laguna Beach School of Art in California. Further studies were completed in New York at the Pastel Society of America. She worked full time in other pursuits to support her two boys and only painted when she could. In 1990, she did her first pastel painting of the “Virgin Mary with a Bouquet of Lilies” for the West Vancouver United Church. By 2000, Page started entering juried exhibitions in pastel painting around the world. She chose this medium, because of its challenge of creating a sculpture in three dimensions with layers of color. Drawing for Page is evocative as bird-song and gives her the freedom to explore its endless joy. Queen Elizabeth II has one of her paintings.''
