Betty Jarvis

I painted when I was a lot younger and passed with honours in art at my girls’ school. Born and educated in England, I attended night school courses in art, which I continued in Canada.


I have had a variety of careers over the years: manual drafting and technical illustrating, landscape designer, and I also owned Country Gourmet, a food and gift store located in Snowball Village for 6 years and then in Aurora for 12 years at St. Andrew’s Village.


I knew when I retired I wanted to get back to it. There were so many lovely scenes to paint. I continued my art education from 1998 to the present.

My choice of medium is oil on canvas.
