Leslie Dunsmore, a well-known Denman Island artist, is opening her Garden of Lilies and Studio for her annual Art Show, July 4-5. In its 11th year, this event continues to bring many people to see her new work.

Strolling up through the garden, hundreds of lilies and poppies will be in full array amongst perennials on a tiered slope.  In her studio and home, the paintings are saturated with bright colour and sharp detail.

Exploring the mountains, foothills and plateaus of B.C. and Alberta for the past two years, Dunsmore’s most recent works are an interpretation of “that place where steep mountains meet the land beneath”.  Immersed for weeks on end in the beauty and silence of backcountry landscapes, Dunsmore returned to her studio to paint throughout the winter and spring.

Her garden, studio and home are at 4791 East Road on Denman Island.  See her work online at www.lesliedunsmore.com .  For more information, phone (250) 335-2918.
