Artist Deanna Lankin
These pictures caught my eye a while back. They're by Tofino artist, Deanna Lankin. She was profiled in Tofino Time a few years back.
From that article:
[Deanna] likes to paint on whatever she can find, broken surf boards, skate boards, canvases and just about anything that paint will stick to. She works mostly in acrylics but has been known to play with water colours and charcoal. Deanna sees her artistic purpose as being there to "capture moments". Much of Deanna's work tends to be portraits and waves but she enjoys landscapes and commission work.
Currently, Deanna has paintings at Tofitian and Studio One. She will also be showing work during the Whale Fest, with paintings at The Wickaninnish Inn and Pacific Sands. For more info on Deanna and to see more of her work, check out her blog. Some of her images can be viewed here, as well.
