Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist
Nickey Bayne is an emerging Canadian artist of the Tri Cities. She is a self taught artist having painted at various times throughout her life. Her main inspiration came from her mother, an artist herself, who was always there showing and telling her the many different aspects of painting. From there her passion grew as the paintings came to life throughout the years. There is so much beauty and diversity on the West Coast and the world. Nickey Bayne is a member of Port Moody Artist Association and Art Focus Artist Associations and myartclub.com. Many of her paintings have been shown at their various Art Shows each year. The Tri City News featured her paintings many different times, promoting Art Focus Art Show in Oct 19, 2015, then in November 5, 2019 promoting City Centre branch of Coquitlam Public Library, and then featured regarding the mural that Art Focus Artists did inside the Tri Cities Community Dialysis Centre in Coquitlam. She has also had her paintings on display at different times in Port Coquitlam City Hall in the Mayor’s office, Port Moody Arts Centre, Eagle Ridge Hospital in Port Moody, and Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver, Coquitlam Library, and the Tri Cities Community Dialysis Centre in Coquitlam.

Samples of my work
My journey in oil painting is an observation of everything that enters my world. Trying to create that bridge between that of painting and things around me. During my many walks I am always looking at the many objects around me, for the West Coast is always changing from morning to night and season to season. With my camera I love to look for the changes in theses different lights as they settle around me, the equilibrium between light and shadow. Then go and paint something ordinary on canvas and make it extraordinary. For I try and capture the power of realism and impressionism in my paintings, bringing the two together. The more I spend looking, observing and then painting the more I learn. “As Music is the poetry of sound, so is painting the poetry of sight” James McNeil Whistler
