Back in 2007, April was creating art as a hobby while working as full time Registered Nurse in post open heart surgery in Victoria, BC, Canada. Fast forward 10+ years and April is now working as a full-time artist, having traded in her in stethoscope for a paintbrush. April creates colorful acrylic paintings that reflect her deep connection with west coast nature, especially trees. April works from her backyard studio among the trees in Maple Ridge near Vancouver BC and is often kept company by her dog Maple, who of course was named after a tree!
April’s original paintings can be found in private collections all over the world. She sells her work online as well as artist fairs, public galleries. April offers a line of reproductions including greeting cards, prints and home decor items that can be found in shops around Canada and on her website. April has also created many public art projects including a mural for the BC Children’s hospital, a painting of a salmon sculpture for the City of Coquitlam and a painting for a collaborative jewelry project given to Kate and Prince William by the Governer General of BC.
