Welcome to the site of Canadian artist Vedrana Ascroft!
Vedrana Ascroft was born in Croatia 42 years ago and immigrated to Canada in 1992.
After residing in a number of Canadian cities and towns, she found her special place under the Sun on beautiful Vancouver Island where she lives with her husband and their two young sons.
Art has always been an integral part of her soul’s journey. She has been painting and drawing from a very early age, intuitively learning as she continued to explore different styles, techniques and subject matter.
The life in her adopted country rewarded her with opportunities to follow her heart and pursue her passions. Many years spent traveling through Canada’s glorious landscape and vibrant cities added to the richness of her inner and outer “inspiration well” which has been filling since childhood, always bound to ultimately burst outwards through her brush-strokes on canvas. Etched deepest into her creative subconscious are life’s simple pleasures: colorful still life and landscapes as symbols of sustenance, connection with the land and fruitfulness of human endeavors are just some of the subject matter explored by this artist.
Many artists past and present inspire and influence her work, while she continues to follow her own inner guidance through a dynamic dance between whimsy and realism in creating her own representational style. Her love of rich and vibrant colors is evident in all her pieces. Acrylics are her chosen medium for fast drying properties and layering ability that adds a desirable dimension of depth.
Vedrana Ascroft holds an Active Status with Federation of Canadian Artists - Vancouver http://artists.ca/ & Victoria Chapter where she also serves on the Executive Board as a Publicity Co-Chair.
