Back in 2007, April was creating art as a hobby while working as full time Registered Nurse in post open heart surgery in Victoria, BC, Canada. Fast forward 10+ years and April is now working as a full-time artist, having traded in her in stethoscope for a paintbrush. April creates colorful acrylic paintings that reflect her deep connection with west coast nature, especially trees. April works from her backyard studio among the trees in Maple Ridge near Vancouver BC and is often kept company by her dog Maple, who of course was named after a tree!
