Marie Neys, B. Comm., FICB, CSE
“Art has always been part of my life!”
A self-taught artist Marie challenged herself to study in acrylics,
ink & rouge, pen & ink, pastels, watercolour, sculpture, pottery and calligraphy. She has spent time creating original art in both the Decorative and Fine Art fields. In 2006 Marie Neys earned the Canadian Standards of Excellence in Decorative Art. She is proud to be acknowledged as the only person in Canada, that year, to be awarded this title.
Marie Neys’ art has evolved and she believes that every medium she has studied became a part of the catalyst for her creativity and lead her to her current discipline, Oil on Canvas in the Alla Prima Methodology.
Marie divides her time between the rolling hills, vast plains and big sky country of Southern Alberta and the towering trees, cool breezes and unending ocean of West Coast British Columbia. Both Inspire her!
When On Bowen Island, you will find Marie walking the Cape Sea Walk, down on the beaches of Tunstall Bay and meandering the many trails that are inland amongst the towering cedars, hemlock and Douglas fir. Her Palette of Pthalo Blue, Transparent Red Iron Oxide, Sap Green, etc meld to create the art rich in hue and texture.Her Current West Coast Series includes “Towards Tunstall Bay, Up Adams Road, To Lot 1, Collingwood Lane, To the Beach and more” This is an ongoing series, comprised of over 15 paintings.

When you meet Marie you will realize there are 2 forces that drive her artistic side. The creation of art and the business of selling art. When you meet Marie, you discover her enthusiasm for both
and may find yourself getting caught up in that passion. Many have said they learn something
about themselves as either an artist or collector.
Marie is thrilled to showcase her work a Arts Pacific Gallery and has
many paintings available and in private collections.
Should you wish to contact her about art, instruction, or for further information, please do so.
She appreciates your consideration of her art.
