Collette Pereira

The world told me that I was an artist from very young. I was always being creative in dance, music and drama. But I loved drawing and painting the best.

I have lived in Chilliwack for almost 30 years and spent much of it in a craft business with my late partner who was a wood turner.

Together, we made a living filling gallery orders and travelling across Canada doing Art & Craft shows.

I am a self-taught artist who uses abstract impressionism to depict nature’s grand explosion in all the colours of the rainbow. I paint instinctively and try to express nature in as much joy as I can.

Even though I love the world of art as a whole,  drawing and painting in vivid color are my passion. 

I always knew I was an artist but the chance to actually make a living as a painter came many years later after I had raised a family, and got a job as a silk painter for a wearable art designer. 

It was an exciting time for me to be actually getting paid to have so much fun. I couldn’t wait to get back to work after the week-ends.

Every painting for me is a journey in which I get to learn something new and exciting. Hopefully, I am able share my joys to make the world a happier place.

 I have continued to follow my passion for painting,  doing Exhibitions and Craft Fairs and getting to know the people who enjoy and collect my paintings.
