- As a self taught oil and acrylic painter, Esther dives into the expression of the West Coast with passion, colour, and realistic renditions of local scenes. Having been a commercial fisherman in a past career, she fell deeply in love with coastal BC. Waves and boats being her specialty, seascapes and wildlife are also a big part of her subject matter. Esther resides in Comox, working from her home studio. She offers weekend workshops in acrylic once or twice a year. Her work is collected around the world. She has been published in numerous hard covered art books and magazines. After 24 years running, she was the first woman to win the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s annual salmon stamp award, and won again 3 years later.
