Ruby Hettervig

I am from Vancouver and have lived here in the Comox Valley for two years. In Vancouver I worked as a draftsperson for 30 years for major engineering firms and loved the idea of drawing all day long.

I love to travel and paint my travels; I often do not take a camera and paint what I see. I plan on painting again in Mexico this fall/winter without a camera.

I have had several shows in Vancouver, solo and with other artist’s.

The Grand Canyon was painted on location, Margarita Bar was painted on my patio in Porta Vallarta, and Bella Coola was again painted on location while on a “paint out”. I have painted in Europe and 5 weeks in the British Virgin Islands which I would like to publish in a “paint your travels” book.

I have studied art at Emily Carr and also the program at Langera.

I will do painting on consignment and also plan on a workshop this summer at Hornby Island. Join my outdoor painting group if you like painting outdoors with other men and women. My plan is to paint the valley and beyond, the gardens in Vancouver to name one of the places.
