A new artist exhibited at the George Mackie Library
Creating art has always been Yacoub’s delight.
Visit the George Mackie Library in North Delta to see works by artist Eve-Lynn Yacoub, currently on display until the end of June.
The exhibition features paintings made using acrylics and mixed media and hand-painted wooden panels made from barn boards and finished with beeswax.
Creating art has always been Yacoub’s delight. She graduated in Commercial Art & Design, specializing in Graphic Design in the UK in the 1970s.
Over the years, she has continued to create art from her home studio. Fervently passionate, she participates in local craft fairs, selling her creations by word of mouth.
“I discovered that creating art is a healing experience in difficult times,” she says. “Creating art allowed for the expression of emotions I needed to feel grounded. It brings joy and happiness – as bright colors and markings lift the spirit. I hope to bring light and joy to others who experience my work.
“As a mother and grandmother, now having more time to focus on my passions, I have rediscovered my creative inspirations to express my life experiences through art and color. I continue to discover my path creative and my style – exploring new directions, experimenting with different mediums to convey texture and color, and finding other ways to express a feeling, mood, memory, or moment in time. sunflower turning to light, it’s an exciting chapter filled with new possibilities.
