The Avenue Gallery – Feature Artist – Maria Josenhans

A passionate landscape painter, Maria Josenhans creates oil paintings both outdoors on location and in her North Vancouver studio. Maria considers the landscape as her garden, a place of connecting with beauty that gives rise to something new and reaches beyond daily concerns. Whether it is a grand vista or an intimate pool by a stream, her aim is not to have the viewer experience what she sees and feels, but to create a space that shares a tender tribute to the ordinary.

"As an artist, I consider it part of my job to continually make note of all that goes on around me, not just visually, but everything, including the sounds, aromas, and textures. It all plays a part in how I perceive the atmosphere of a place. The title 'Call of the Mountain Bluebird', pays tribute to one small creature in particular, that inhabits this place and adds yet another layer of subtle beauty." – Maria Josenhans
