Larissa McLean is a new resident of the Comox Valley and a recent Alchemist. She comes with a plethora of art skills and fifteen years’ teaching experience. She has a BFA in printmaking and holds a current teaching certificate for Alberta and British Columbia.

Larissa has been painting for over 20 years and is knowledgeable in mixed-media and fluid acrylics. She is currently enrolled at North Island College, upgrading her knowledge in non-toxic printmaking techniques.

Her visions in fluid acrylics and watercolour are of nature: images warm and inviting, to mysterious and distant, each a distillation of recent experiences imbued with the energy of her own feelings at the moment. Some paintings take multiple sessions spanning weeks, while others are created in just a few hours.
