Arlene Hobbs

Arlene realized her passion for art at an early age and it has continued to be an integral part of her life. She pursued her interest at the Alberta College of Art in 1979, followed by the University of Calgary. After decades spent mastering the intricacies of watercolour she discovered a new fascination with oil painting. Arlene’s vibrant and colorful paintings are inspired by nature and experiences close to her heart. Since 1989 she has participated in over 100 exhibitions and has won awards including the “Award of Excellence” from the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour. Arlene’s work can be found in collections across North America, Europe, and Australia.
