Jocelyn Barrable Segal

Originally from Montreal, Jocelyn now lives and works in Vancouver. She received in 1983 a Bachelor in both Interior Design and Fine Art from the University of Manitoba and graduated with a MFA in printmaking in 1986 from Louisiana State University. Jocelyn continues to travel extensively to many areas of the world. The concept of movement influences her images and is now most visible in her floral arrangements. They show her genuine love for carefully drawn images on stone, herability to focus on details and her courage to let the brush wander in its own authentic language. The merging of these skills and sensibilities result in a visibly unique signature. Jocelyn's work can be found in private and public collections in North America, Europe and Asia."The subject of my work often references the diverse morphology one can find in the world of botany. I am particularly interested in the universal language of flowers and portray them as icons and metaphors to express emotional states."
