"I Am What I Paint"

A 3rd Generation, artist Mes-Low apprenticed from 1985 onwards with a number of artists over a 3-year period in the Netherlands and then worked as an artist, illustrator & muralist.

In 1991, she made a permanent move to the West Coast of Canada from The Netherlands where Mes-Low has worked toward her degree at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver, BC.

Mes Low's art is a fluid and ever-changing exchange between the canvas and images from her subconscious. The landscape of the west coast has caught her in all its colour and ever-changing light.  Her approach to landscape is one of tightening up the form and accentuating the colour present in the environ. Surrealistic abstractions of the landscape.

Urbanization also plays an important role in her work. The high prices of real estate make much of housing unattainable for many which are rapidly changing the landscape of the west coast of Canada. Her work bears a message of preservation rather than constant change.

Over the years many of her paintings have found their way into private collections both in Europe, Canada, US & South America.
