New art show at New Creations

A painting by Emily Boulton and a landscape painting by her mother Elizabeth.

There’s an exhibition on at New Creations Gallery this month by mother and daughter artists Elizabeth Boulton and Emily Boulton.

The Boultons will share the gallery space with Rae Mond.

Liz Boulton was born in Hamilton, Ont. and moved, at 19, to British Columbia, where the natural beauty inspired her to create wildlife portraits in watercolor, pencil and acrylics.

She is mainly a self-taught artist who has volunteered her talent as an art teacher in schools and has taught workshops to teachers and students alike.

Currently local scenes of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge represented in a loose watercolor or acrylic technique style inspires her.

Emily Boulton is a young emerging artist from Pitt Meadows.

She has appreciation for a plethora of different styles and techniques and does not like to limit herself to one approach.

At a young age, Emily began drawing realistic portraits and abandoned realism for surrealism as a teenager. Her two years in the Studio Arts program at Capilano University  indoctrinated an abstract style to her work.

Presently, she enjoys painting images that border on Impressionism and Abstraction.

She is has also been a keen supporter of the local music scene and has been contracted to do album artwork for several bands.

• New Creations is located at 22409 McIntosh Avenue in Maple Ridge (off 224th Street, behind Jim’s Pizza).
