Carla Verrmaat

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Carla started painting in 1995in a therapeutic response to devastating
events in her life. She was immediately drawn to the luminosity of light opposed to secretive darks and
the vibrancy of bright colours.

Experimenting in various mediums, including watercolours, oils, acrylics and inks, her work displays the
many different aspects of her personality: strong, colourful landscapes opposed to simplified quick
sketches in pen and ink.
The vastness of the British Columbia landscape never ceases to humble me, inspire me and my aim is to
capture its beauty in the perfect painting, which I have not achieved yet and I doubt I ever will, - but will
keep trying.

Carla has exhibited in many galleries and solo exhibitions in the UK and her work has reached many
homes all over the globe. Now a member of the Port Moody Art Association, she focus on landscapes that
are an eye opener to her since she moved to Canada.
