Mavis Gauchier

Emerging Artist

Mavis Gauchier’s journey into painting started many years ago, beginning with her love of photography and its ability to capture small details presented in the flowers and underbrush of mountain trails. A native Albertan calling Calgary home for the past 35 years, she finds Alberta’s diverse landscape inspiring. In 2019, wanting to explore how she could express her photography through painting, Gauchier started an intuitive painting class and her journey into acrylic painting began. Up to this point her artwork has focused on floral, fungi and landscapes in a traditional style in order to document the beauty of nature. Like Georgia O’Keeffe, she continues to explore ways she can best express her fascination with the small details in nature that most people overlook. She believes that a successful painting is one that brings a smile to her face, pulls her in for a closer look and has her asking ”how did they do that?”
