Artist Marilynn Tebbit is showcasing her original works in Steveston as part of an exhibition at Rocanini Coffee Roasters Cafe.

On until Feb. 24, the Dancing in the New Year art show also features works from artist Therese Lydia Joseph.

Tebbit paints “what hooks my emotion and poses a technical challenge.” Her art education began in high school with a commercial artist-turned-teacher.

She took a few courses in university, and learned much about art during a 10-year part-time career as a nude model for the Alberta College of Art and Design.

Tebbit has designed tattoos, painted on flower pots and has even illustrated a children’s book.

Her favourite subjects include ballet, fashion, birds, architecture and people. Pencil, pencil crayon, acrylic, charcoal pencil, chalk and pastel are her mediums of choice.

She has just released a new e-book, Pool Party. The 188-page novel follows Marcie, who gets away from it all by leaving Calgary for Florida. Once there, she seems to attract all the wrong men. Rocanini is located at 115-3900 Moncton St., at No. 1 Road.
