Margaret Chow-Loo is a retired CPA, CGA as of 2019 and she started painting in 2020, first in watercolour and later in acrylic. She taught herself to paint in acrylic on canvas and canvas panels. She has painted different subjects, including crocuses in spring, a peace garden of Texas, and various landscapes and seascapes of B.C. and Washington State. She looks for the beauty of patterns, shapes and colours in nature and other subjects, and how light, proximity and movement change them. She strives to have the viewer experience such beauty, and a sense of calm and joy in her paintings. She joined the FCA as a supporting member in November 2020 and received her active status in January 2023.
As a visual artist, when you see beauty in nature or anything, it is worth capturing it with paint and canvas. It is my hope that the viewer of my painting will experience such beauty and a sense of calm and joy in the painting.
