Tofino based artist, Mei, has been creating unique expressions of art since 2015. Self taught, she discovered a unique painting process that is reminiscent of cloud gazing and inspired by her wild imagination. After dropping a multitude of watercolors onto paper, she lets them dry as shapes and images reveal themselves to her. Trusting the process, she then traces the images and creatures, which create one-of-a-kind illustrations. Just as each painting evolves and expresses her current state of mind, she hopes viewers will find their own unique story reflected.
In addition to her watercolor illustrations, she infuses her art with nature through working with local Vancouver Island wood and wild flowers from Tofino to create botanical pieces of art to hang on a wall, a table centrepiece, a hanging mobile, or a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece.
