Rose-Marie Goodwin (Johnsen, née Svenhard), born in Sweden, came to Canada’s west coast as a child. Creative and artistic in her core, she has an innate sense of colour and has been influenced by the great artists: O’Keeffe, Hopper, Gavazzi, Degas and Caravaggio. When asked what she hopes to instill with her viewers, she says, “With images of dramatic light and colour, I strive to encourage for life’s day to day walk.”
An accomplished colourist, her own style developed in formal training including the Emily Carr and Capilano Universities in Vancouver; Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; select workshops; and painting, painting, painting (Malcom Gladwell’s 10,000 hours).

Juries have selected her for numerous Group Shows including the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) Gallery in Vancouver; Sidney Fine Arts Show; Kelowna Art Visions; and Ferry Building Gallery in West Vancouver.
