Lillian Sarafinchan - The Artist, Watercolors, Oil, Portraits


Welcome to the art of Lillian Sarafinchan.

A daughter of Vegreville, Alberta, Lillian's talent was noticed early. A local artist, Laura Evans Reid, quietly entered her paintings in a provincial competition. They won and she was awarded the first of her 8 scholarships to the Banff School of Fine Art. There, she studied under H.G. Glyde and W.J. Phillips. Lillian continued her studies at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where her mentor was Jock MacDonald.

First working in oils and later in watercolour inks, her lyrical, abstract paintings glow with an organic flow of colour and hue seldom explored.

Lillian has had 23 solo exhibitions in major galleries.

  Her paintings and drawings hang in corporate and private collections in Canada, the US, England, Australia and Ukraine. She has also been recognized for production design in film.

A selection of paintings is available. In addition, Lillian accepts commissions for character portraits and continues to conduct workshops for groups of all ages.
