April is a prolific acrylic painter, and we have sold her matted prints, cards, calendars and ornaments featuring her artwork since 2009. The selection is always changing as April adds new images to her selection of reproductions. She is also the best marketer I have ever met!
A Professional Visual Artist, April Lacheur’s work explores the connection between humans and nature, with a specific focus on trees. Demonstrated through semi-abstract acrylic paintings, Lacheur examines these relationships on a deeper level by means of bold colours, flowing lines, exposed tree roots, phantom trees and layers, which vary in translucency and opacity.
I create colourful acrylic paintings that reflect my deep connection with west coast nature, especially trees. My favourite place to be is in the forest and my artwork aims to provide the viewer with a calming escape to the forest whenever they may need it.
My work also explores the ways in which we are similar to the nature that surrounds us and what we can learn from the harmony of the forest. I work from my backyard studio among the trees in Maple Ridge near Vancouver BC.
