Themes in Nora Layard’s life and past career have been the environment, nature, wilderness, water, and social justice. Now she is drawing on these for her painting and printmaking.
She joined the Salt Spring Painters Guild in 2011 and since then has been immersed in learning and artmaking. She describes her art learning as “being a sponge, learning from fellow members, taking courses, reading, and of course, doing”.
Now mostly retired from her environmental consulting career, she takes delight in being able to focus on her art work.

Pulling a print off the press or laying colour onto a canvas evokes delight and surprise for me! And being in the flow of the work is a gift that I savour.
