The Artist Says:

I have always been attracted to dramatic light, colour and shadow that encourage our walk through life.

Collectors Say:

For a commissioned work: "I was SO nervous when I took the paper off tonight, and so surprised at the finished result . It is so much more amazing than I even imagined.  I LOVE IT ! LOVE IT! LOVE IT !!!  It is so me I can't even tell you! I love the colours, love the water, love the Moroccan outlines and, believe it or not, the cross ( which I didn't even realize I wanted).


Rose-Marie Goodwin (née Svenhard), born in Sweden, came to Canada as a child.  Her innate sense of colour was soon influenced by the images of the west coast.  Creative and artistic in her core, she has been influenced by O'Keeffe, Hopper, Gavazzi, Degas and Caravaggio.

An accomplished colourist, her own style developed at the Emily Carr Art & Design and Capilano Universities (Vancouver); Instituto Allende (San Miguel de Allende, Mexico); workshops with strong accomplished artists; and through painting, painting, painting (Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000 hours).  
“I am an encourager, and have always been attracted to dramatic light, colour and shadow to encourage each individual in their walk through life"
