Lyla Jacobsen
My paintings are often of a particular scene that suddenly catches my eye, be it landscape, common place items about my home, or moments that tell a story. When I see it, I have to sketch it, then, later launch the image to canvas, sometimes with the support of a photo. Sometimes the paintings are based on a memory or emotion from childhood.

Lyla grew up in Alberta, Canada, with a close connection to six siblings, farm animals and nature. She has created personal greeting cards most of her life. Gardening, and the Northwest outdoors have kept her eye close to the wonders of nature.

Since retiring from nursing she has become more intense about painting, improving her skills through study with Deanne Lemley, Victor Sandblom, Catherine Gill, Teresa Saia, Steve Whitney. Camille Przewodik, Peggi Kroll, and Arnie Westerman. She works mainly with oils and watercolor, doing representational work, and lately including more figurative work of people involved in daily activities.

Lyla has been juried into and sold artwork at shows including The Eastside association of Fine Arts, Kenmore Art, Bellevue Art Museum, Bellevue Art Fair, Kaewyn Gallery, as well as sold her artwork privately.  Two of her paintings have been selected for posters, one for the Woodinville Garden Club’s 2005 Garden Tour and one for the Eastside Association of Fine Arts 2005 Exhibit.
