Melanie Kuzminski

Melanie Kuzminski was born in Vancouver, and now lives in South Surrey, British Columbia.  She was educated at The Vancouver School of Art (now Emily Carr Institute), and the University of British Columbia.  After a satisfying career as an elementary school teacher, Melanie has returned to painting.  She enjoys working outdoors, "en plein air" in oils and watercolours, trying to capture the elusive moods created by sunshine, season, tide, wind and weather.  Melanie's studio paintings are  based on plein air experiences, photographs, and imagination.  She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
