Main photo: Lucy Quin finds inspiration in the wonder of the seasons and the beautiful scenery that Canada offers. Lucy is enchanted by Canadian landscape. She paints in the classic style with a contemporary approach that, combined with the spirituality she finds in nature, allows her to create works that are mood-evoking and timeless. She will be exhibiting her work at the Purple Turtle Art Festival.
