Chickadees by Elizabeth McLaren
North Vancouver artist Elizabeth McLaren sketches en plein air and works in both oils and watercolours to capture the splendour of BC’s terrain, plant life, and wildlife.
She draws inspiration from her home garden, our beautiful west coast and the hiking trails around Vancouver and the Garibaldi and Whistler areas. She often visits Maplewood Flats Bird Sanctuary, one of her favourite North Vancouver sketching locations.
Elizabeth’s work is undeniably elegant.
