ART: "Zanzibar Forzani beach" by Sher Nasser
More about the artist
Born on the spice island of Zanzibar, surrounded by the Indian Ocean, Sher Nasser spent her formative years around the beautiful coastlines of East Africa. Inspired by the gorgeous vistas surrounding her, Sher's interest in drawing started early. However, it was not until many years later and having moved to Canada, that Sher discovered the joyful world of painting.
'When I first arrived in Canada I was immediately fascinated with the effects of light and shadow that the September sun was creating. I am gifted with a strong love of nature and seeing the wonderful variety of colors that each season brings. I felt a strong inspiration to try and capture those radiant colors on my canvas'.
Excelling in floral watercolors, Sher also creates breathtaking landscapes, still-lives and life-like portraits in a variety of media. Living in British Columbia, Sher is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Port Moody Arts Association and the Art Focus Group. A proud supporter of many charities, Sher is always happy to donate her paintings and time to worthy causes.
