Larissa is an art teacher who enjoys mixed media, layers, fluid acrylics and printmaking. Her windmill house/studio is tucked within a wild English garden where she works on sustainability.
Larissa McLean is a resident of the Comox Valley and a member of Art Alchemy, located in downtown Courtenay. She comes with a plethora of art skills and seventeen years’ teaching experience. She has a BFA in printmaking and holds a current teaching certificate for Alberta and British Columbia.
Larissa has been painting for over 20 years and is knowledgeable in mixed-media and fluid acrylics. Her current focus is on integrating art, horticulture and sustainability into everyday life using her half-acre home as an example.
Her visions in fluid acrylics and watercolour are of nature: images warm and inviting, to mysterious and distant, each a distillation of recent experiences imbued with the energy of her own feelings at the moment. Some paintings take multiple sessions spanning weeks, while others are created in just a few hours.
