Violet Smythe

Discipline: Visual Artist

Violet is an active member of the Westcoast Calligraphy Society (2000), Alphabeas Calligraphy Guild (2007), Peninsula Scribes (2015), South Surrey White Rock Arts Society and Semiahmoo Arts (2015), Dogwood Decorative Artist Guild (2003) and was a board director with the Thompson Community Centre Association (2009-2016) and sat on the arts committee as well.
In 2000 she was introduced to the WCS and this association not only opened and promoted opportunities to explore the art of calligraphy but was the  catalyst for a number of other art related endeavours.

She continues to develop her calligraphic hand and also pursues classes in watercolour, decorative painting, acrylics, mixed media and most recently, classical and life drawing through Langara Community College and Phoenix Art Studio. She is a member of an artist collaborative and Creekside Watercolour Artists group. Her work has been included in juried exhibition at various venues in the Greater Vancouver area. A number of her watercolours and acrylic pieces can be found in private collections. You can see an example of her most recent collaboration in the 2014 November issue of Bound and Lettered: Playing with a Full Deck as well as on her website.
