Phyllis Albone

Phyllis died in 2016 a few days after celebrating her 95th birthday. She is much missed by her friends and family. Her biography, in her own words, follows:

I was born and raised in Essex, England. After marriage in 1950 and the birth of our daughter, we emigrated to Canada and lived in Toronto. We retired to beautiful B.C in 1987 and I was able to devote more time to my interest in art, concentrating on Watercolours, Inks and Collage. I became a member of the Victoria Sketch Club in 2002. During the past ten years I have enjoyed the freedom and challenge of Creative Art using acrylic paints and inks. I have taken courses with Ann Hunter,Lorne Loomer, Gerald Brommer, Maxine Masterfield, Donna Baspaly and Jill Ehlert.
