WITH A NATURAL GIFT FOR DRAWING AND SKETCHING,

COLLETTE J PEREIRA  HAD ALWAYS WANTED A CHANCE TO WORK IN THE ART WORLD.

MANY YEARS WOULD PASS BEFORE SHE WOULD PICK UP A BRUSH AND GRATIFY HER DREAM. 


WHEN SHE AND HER FAMILY CAME TO LIVE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA SHE WAS FORTUNATE TO GET A JOB PAINTING SILK FOR A DESIGNER OF WEARABLE ART IN VANCOUVER.

IT SET HER DANCING ON A RAINBOW SO HIGH SHE WAS NEVER GOING TO COME DOWN.

IN 1992 SHE AND HER PARTNER BRIAN TYSON, SET UP SHOP TO MAKE A LIVING
IN THE CREATIVE WORLD.

A MASTER WOOD-TURNER HE MADE BEAUTIFUL ART-FORMS, INCLUDING DELICATE WOODEN BELLS.

SHE PAINTED TINY CHRISTMAS SCENES AND CANADIAN BIRDS ON THE BELLS
WHICH SOLD WORLDWIDE.

THROUGH-OUT THE YEAR, THEY FILLED GALLERY ORDERS,
AND IN THE FALL, PARTICIPATED  IN MAJOR CRAFT SHOWS FROM VANCOUVER TO OTTAWA.

AFTER HE PASSED AWAY SHE DECIDED TO WORK IN FINE ART AND LET HER

PASSION FOR COLOR FLOW FREELY ONTO CANVASES, PANELS AND BOARDS.

SELF-TAUGHT, SHE HAS FOUND THAT, DEPICTING NATURE'S GLORY IN
HER IMPRESSIONISTIC STYLE, IS, HER BEST WAY TO SAY

THANK-YOU FOR THE DIVINE GRACE THAT HAS ALLOWED HER SO MUCH JOY.
