Then a year later studying for four years at the Emily Carr College of Art in Vancouver graduating with a diploma of Fine Arts. Josephine was on a field trip in New York for ten days and was so affected by seeing paint on canvas at the Museum of Modern Art. That inspired her to paint plien air on Hornby that summer. Josephine has painted in Montreal, Quebec City, off the coast of Tofino, seen Chile, in Australia, a few times in Europe and lived in the Haida Gwaii. She now lives and works on Salt Spring Island.
"I have always been observing. I love the use of colour in its many varying sequences. It is a life time study. Working in the landscape is merely an excuse to be able to observe colour and form in a way that presents such nuances that are on going in fascinating me in their complexity . Thus my love of just colour in what is called field painting. I love light emanating from with in and like to convey this through my work. I tend to only work with oils as they satisfy my need to put down a colour I desire and it does what I need. It also can surprise me with it's possibility." - Josephine Fletcher
