Frances Alty-Arscott began as a proficient Watercolour Painter and added the medium of Acrylic on Canvas to her repertoire in the early 2000's. Colour can be a powerful element of visual communication and Frances was able to transfer her "signature use of vibrant colour" in her watercolours to her acrylic paintings. Her paintings are inspired by the rolling countryside and the sparse woodlands of Alberta. She does not paint specific scenes so much as take the elements that she sees and attempts to portray her impressions on the paper. This subject matter continues to be, her interruption, in her own unique expressionistic style, the many aspects and seasons of both urban and rural Alberta. The artwork of Frances Alty-Arscott is represented by Rowles & Company Ltd.
