carole arnstonCarole Arnston is a West Coast Canadian painter whose impressionistic style has been shaped by her background in design and architecture.

Arnston combines strong composition and subtle brushwork with an impressionist’s lyrical feel for movement and form in the landscape. Her iconic style is reminiscent of abstract expressionists such as Joan Mitchell, Frankenthaler, and Bonnard.

From her home and studio perched above the Salish sea near Victoria, Arnston draws inspiration from soft coastal light, steady westerly winds, ocean rhythms and the sublime beauty of the coastal environment.
