New in the Gallery by Susie Cipolla

We are captivated with Susie Cipolla‘s newest series of west coast paintings, simultaneously showcasing the beauty of the subject matter and Susie’s ability to transport the viewer to those moments. Susie’s preferred painting medium is acrylic and her subject matter is primarily west coast scenery and wildlife.

Born in Vancouver, Susie Cipolla first broke into the art world at the age of seven, winning a bicycle in a Dairyland colouring contest. After that, life brought many distractions and responsibilities so she didn’t pursue her art for the next forty-three years. Susie has lived in Whistler, BC for 35 years. Read more
