Ottawa Public Library supervisor Catherine Flegg is our Artist of the Month in North Gower.
“I started to paint on a whim about a year ago. My friend asked me if I wanted to take lessons at our local art shop in Carleton Place. I found I really enjoyed the classes and learning about colour mixing and techniques. I started with acrylics, but then, took two oil workshops. I discovered I really liked the vibrant colours of oil and also oil allows you to create wonderful textures. I enjoy painting nature up close.”
