Kelowna Community Theatre Artscape: Featured Artist – Lyse Deselliers (March 2019 - Current)

Lyse Deselliers was born in Quebec City and obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Montreal in 1989. While pursuing her career as a veterinarian in Ottawa and then in Calgary, she continued to develop her artistic skills as a painter. Her body of work mainly consists of Acrylic landscape and cityscape paintings along with public art murals. Currently, she is focusing on creating larger pieces in an attempt to better capture the monumental beauty of the Okanagan, using aerial photographs of the area surrounding her hometown of Penticton. She’s also giving workshops on painting with a focus on creativity and the involvement of the different areas of the brain in the creation of an artwork.

“My artwork is meant to engage the viewer’s own imagination in a moment of visual contemplation. I will use elements of design to create movement and rhythms in an attempt to stimulate the neuro pathways which are responsible for the pleasure found in viewing art.”
