MaryLou Wakefield is an abstract expressionist painter working primarily in acrylic and ink enhanced by oil pastel and other media. She draws inspiration for her art from wild landscapes, architectural forms, design and letter forms. She creates work in layers applying colour over and under shapes and lines and one of a kind marks. Her work unfolds until a story is told. MaryLou is a member of the Victoria Print Society and Victoria Arts Council and is a board member of the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts. She has exhibited numerous times in Victoria at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Chapel Gallery, and Victoria Arts Council and in New York at the Southampton Arts Centre. MaryLou lives in Victoria and works from her tiny garden shed studio.
