The intriguing pull to go further on a forest path, the stark loneliness of a winter beach or the infinite variety of shape, texture, and colour in a tidal pool, pulls abruptly to a place of quiet, admiration, beyond language. It is my mission to bring these emotions to canvas, I paint with a deep love and reverence for nature.
Born in Horseshoe Bay, EM. Butler also spent many years on northern Vancouver Island. Deep roots in Trinity Bay, NL, have provided an unending admiration for coastal landscapes.
Currently working in Acrylics, her previous works in ink, and watercolour, were used in advertising and commissioned for private collections. University courses supplemented her self-taught knowledge base, acute observance of her surroundings, and the challenges of capturing those moments.
EM Butler’s work may be found in homes in Stratford,Ont., St.John’s, NL, Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, and Kamloops, BC. In the 3 years since retirement her work has been chosen for exhibits and advertising; she has also successfully, participated in the 2013 & 2014 Fort Langley Studio Tours, where she now resides.
