Garden Patchwork

Roma Kassian (Hopkins)

Roma Kassian sees potential paintings in the stuff of everyday living. Of particular interest is the beauty of the fleeting quality of light. The detailed paintings are the result of years spent honing the powers of observation. Trained in printmaking at the Ontario College of Art, Roma switched to watercolours in the 1980s when searching for a more direct approach to working with colour.
