HISTORY OF THE ARTIST

Nefri Lyske immigrated to the West coast of Canada in 1950. She has spent many a vacation with family exploring the Parks of British Columbia. Her love of the outdoors is the subject of many oil paintings and watercolours. Nefri finds inspiration and challenges in capturing the contrast of Nature's light shows; the cool of the shades and warmth of sunshine on the water and in the forests.
