Charlene Long

Charlene Long is a mixed media artist who has arrived at her career from a background in Interior Design, Corporate Marketing and Teaching. Her self-directed art education includes courses at Emily Carr University as well as studies in Europe and the United States. Charlene’s art is informed by the exploration of the natural world. Her unique style incorporates realism and abstraction and, using multiple media and vibrant colour, reflects her experiences of travel and her passion for evoking atmosphere and the mystery of time and place.

Her current series is deeply influenced by the work of the Canadian poet Pauline Johnson. Charlene’s work is found in collections in Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the North and South Americas, incorporating larger pieces, small paintings, painted boxes, as well as gift items of original art. Charlene works out of her studio on Granville Island where you can often find her painting.
