Liza Gareau Tosh has been working as an artist for over 25 years. Originally from Saskatchewan, Liza first discovered Fernie in the late 1990s, has lived in Fernie transiently since 2004, and took up permanent residence in 2012. Liza, who dabbles in both studio work and plein air, gravitates to acrylic and watercolour through painting and drawing. Her work is largely representational but never predictable.
Loza aquired her B.F.A from the University of Saskathewan in 2006. Now living and working in Fernie, she seeks out her peers for engagement and discourse. She also mentors and teaches emerging an student artists. She has 13 indoor and outdoor murals to her credit, including a 65' x 10' diorama in Harris, Saskatchewan. She was inspired to paint the frozen, dead fruits on the vines in her garden by the French translation of hte words 'Still Life' - Nature Morte, or literally, Dead Nature. She enjoys playing with negative and positive space, colour, shape and form - the wonderous whole.
