Aeris Osborne

Aeris is a self-taught Hong Kong – Canadian immigrant visual artist who moved to Edmonton, AB, Canada in 2007. She is the 2021-2022 Alberta Artist In Residence / Art Ambassador appointed by the Government of Alberta and working on her newest project “Alberta Old Buildings”. Her previous “YEG Old Houses” project during her 1st artist-in-residence at McLuhan House artist studio in Highlands which was operated by Art Habitat Edmonton, was awarded a 2022 art grant from Canada Council For The Art. YEG Old House series is recognized by local media including CBC Edmonton, CKUA Radio, Edify Edmonton, Rat Creek Press. She won twice years Open Art Competition in Allied Art Council Spruce Grove and painted for over a decade.

Aeris was born and raised in Hong Kong and moved to Canada in 2007. HK was a modern international city mixing Eastern and Western cultures, from Traditional Chinese Temples to Victorian Architecture. Indeed, their cultural background influences her perspective on life as well as Art.

Since Aeris moved to Edmonton, Alberta starts a new life with her husband, the change in living environment, landscapes, and nature inspired her in every aspect to be a true artist. It created unique opportunities and freedom to stimulate her creativity by using the visual medium to express her vision and observation.

Her artwork prints and original paintings can be found in the Art Gallery Of St. Albert’s Gallery Shop, St. Albert W.A.R.E.S Shop, and Tix On The Square in downtown Edmonton, as well on her personal website.

Aeris’s artworks were collected in North America, the U.K, and Asia.

Artist Statement

As a self-taught visual artist, and registered social worker in Alberta. I was born and raised in both Eastern and Western cultures. Cultural background influences my perspective of life as well as my Art.

My visual art is a journey of self-exploration. They are representing the integration between my inner peacefulness and passion. My paintings and drawings were taken from the essence of the landscapes, and surrounding objects. I redefined them and gave them a new identity while keeping the soul of the land and surrounding object.

All my visual arts have their own character with no duplication, a medium can be acrylic, watercolor, or ink pen. You can find my acrylic paintings presented in vivid, striking color palettes emphasizing the passion of life. Also, you can find my watercolor paintings presented in the subtle, soft color palette emphasizing the ethereal and delicate atmosphere.

My Favorite

Bible Scripture:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverb: 3:5-6

Serenity

Even old Architectural, historical buildings are my favorite paintings and drawing subjects. I do like painting florals, animals, and mountainscapes as well.
