Saanich South Showcasing Elizabeth Caulton

Dear Saanich,

We are a very fortunate community to have such talented artists in our midst. My community office at 4085 Quadra is one location you can stop by and view some of their works.

Currently my office is highlighting the acrylic and oil works of Elizabeth Caulton.

Elizabeth was born in England and spent her childhood in the Midlands, which gave her easy access to the natural beauty of the Derbyshire Dales. She moved to B.C. in 1964 and continued her teaching career in both primary schools and University courses.

Elizabeth is using her retirement to devote more time to painting and exploring the use of various mediums in her creations of landscapes, florals, portraits and animal commissions. She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and several local art clubs. Her works have been juried into the Sidney Fine Art Show six times - in addition to over 10 years of art showings all around Victoria.

I hope that you will find time to stop into my community office, on the corner of Quadra and Nicholson, to take in a selection of Elizabeth's fine work. We are honoured to host an artist of her caliber.
