Poppy Balser is a Canadian painter who has always lived within walking distance of the ocean.
She developed an early connection with the seashore which continues to deepen as she studies the sea and its environs through her paintings. She highlights in her paintings that precious resource: the wild portions of Nova Scotia’s environment. She paints outside in all seasons, including in her cold Canadian winters. Plein air work keeps her observations fresh and accurate. Her goal in her studio work is to capture the sense of being in the open air, outside in nature.
