Carylann Loeppky is a self-taught painter & visual artist. She comes from a graphic design background. Studied at Emily Carr University of Art & Design, British Columbia Institute of Technology and Vancouver Vocational Institute. For twelve years she worked in
the Art Department of a major record label where she added video and motion graphics to her inventory of art practices.
Currently her study is painting: oil on canvas and board, creating portraits, abstracts + figurative works. Exploring and combining these techniques with subject matter. Inspired by the old masters; using layering methods as she has developed in her graphic
design work, Carylann incorporates glazing, layering, sanding, and scratching to the painting to blend and soften the appearance: bringing out small details and energy to each piece. Her portraits tend to be quite small, which gives them a unique intimacy and take can take up to one year to complete each piece.
