Artist Statement

I’ve been making these tiny sparks of joy with miniature watercolour paintbrushes, a tiny palette and magnifying glasses made for fly-fishing crafts. I love the way tiny things bring happiness and help the viewer see everyday things in a new way. Winter reminds me of my Ukrainian grandmother, so I have focused on things that remind me of her in this series: beets, bread, cabbage, birds and tulips.


Clove Bird (Gaby Lamoureux) is a realist watercolour artist based in Burnaby, BC. Her art focuses on finding new joy and peace in everyday things, from the texture of a leafy vegetable to the wrinkles and stretch marks on changing bodies.
