Joy Anson has joined the stable of artists at Eclectic Gallery.

The primarily self-taught intuitive artist utilizes a strong sense of childlike primitivism in her collection of Sunflower series now showing at Eclectic.

Anson is passionate about the brilliant colour in her Sunflower paintings.

“Colour excites and energizes me. It is an expression of joyous sensuousness,” the artist says of the brilliant colour in the sunflower images.

Anson has shown at Avenue Gallery and Fran Willis Gallery in Victoria and galleries in Vancouver.

Her Sunflower series is on exhibit at Eclectic, 2170 Oak Bay Ave., until Sept. 12.
