Home Westcoast Rockies Abroad Watercolour Biography

Her understanding of what makes up a landscape is enhanced by her B.A. degree in Geography/Geology from the University of British Columbia. She attended the Vancouver School of Art where she studied with Molly Lamb Bobak. Crerar won the Leon and Thea Koerner Scholarship to the U.B.C. School of Fine Arts to study with Jacques de Tonnacour.

She studied Japanese Brush Painting with Kaz Hamasaki and Priest Tanahashi. In oriental paintings the principal of a moving focus is used. Thus one might travel through miles of landscape in the joyous moods of spring, the green and moist moods of summer and the serene moods of winter.
