I recently framed up some of my prints to help give my Dad’s place an art face lift .. I think they turned out great (pardon the glare.. so tricky some times !) note: my brand new prints will be ready in next few weeks too!

🙌🏼That's a wrap on my show at the Port Moody Arts Center @pomoarts ! ✨ What a pleasure it has been to show my work in this lovely community space and have it seen in person by so many supportive eyes. A big thank you to curator Janice Cotter who has been a delight to work with and did a beautiful job of hanging my work. I am so grateful for the opportunity and thankful for everyone who came to view my work and those who chose to make my art a part of their homes. THANK YOU! 💕

Nurse stumps and nurse logs are known as healers of the forest 🌲Even though they are dead, they are not gone.. they provide a foundation for seedlings to grow and flourish, much like our family members before us 💕A forest of trees is really not much different then our own human communities and I love finding the similarities. This painting is 'Nursing Connection' (see what I did there with the name wink wink) and is part of my current show at Port Moody Arts Center @pomoarts on till March 22. This painting is 18x24 acrylic on wood $595 framed in white. Love to hear your feedback on this one 😀 I have been meaning to paint a nurse stump forever !! #nursestump #nurselog #treefacts #treelover #treelove #forestlovers #forestlife #nurse #nurseswhopaint #pomoarts #portmoody #vancouverartist #vancouverart #mapleridge #creativelifehappylife #artistsofinstagram #painter #femaleartist #bosslady #yapespaints #fraservalleyartist

Details of the handmade metal nest Ren made that is in my 'Home Free' original painting I posted earlier. Such a unique feature! See it in person till March 22 at @pomoarts 🙌🏼 #nest #metalart #copper #pomoarts #birdsnest #family #home #portmoody #vancouverarts #yapespaints #originalpainting

Our Canadian Pacific Gallery flooded with light on a beautiful day 🙌🏻
The walls are aglow with the work of local artist April Lacheur (@yapespaints), whose colourful, whimsical paintings of trees convey not only the beauty of nature, but also our deeply-rooted relationship to it. They pair perfectly with Jim Johnson’s delicately turned wood pieces, which the artist crafts from the tree to the finished product. Together, the works in ‘Our Roots Exposed’ demonstrate that like trees in the forest, we too have roots that help us grow strong as individuals and connect us to our community.
The exhibition is on display until March 22 and is worth carving out the time to come see in person! #PoMoArts

✨Home Free✨ is acrylic on wood with one of those gorgeous metal nests my husband Ren created. LOVE those hammered copper eggs! I have left some of the tree bark transparent as a reminder for us to also expose our background, our stories, so we can celebrate them and better understand each other. This piece is a nice reminder of home, family and connection. Part of my 'Our Roots Exposed' show now up at the Port Moody Arts Center @pomoarts till March 22. Painting is 22x30 $1300. Love to hear your feedback 💕
