Robert Amos

Since 1975 Robert Amos has painted Victoria’s urban landscapes in vivid watercolours and vibrant acrylics. Amos was made an Honorary Citizen of the City of Victoria (1985) and was elected to membership in the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts (1996).
In this community, Robert Amos is remembered for his weekly column, On Art, which ran in Victoria’s Times Colonist newspaper for 32 years. Robert Amos has become known as “the man who paints Victoria“.  Robert’s paintings have entered the permanent collections of the City of Victoria, the Municipality of Oak Bay, the University of Victoria and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
Most important to him are the commissioned paintings he creates of some of our most interesting homes and gardens.

Sarah Amos

Sarah Amos has been painting professionally since arriving in Victoria in 1981. Accomplished with both watercolours and oil paint, she is known for her patient observation and fine workmanship.

Over the years she has shown in group exhibitions and solo shows at Cedar Hill Art Centre, Victoria City Hall, the Auld Kirk Gallery in Shawnigan Lake, Sandstone Studio on Gabriola Island, among others. Her book, Sarah’s Tea Time, presenting recipes and stories illustrated with her own paintings, was published in 2009 by TouchWood Editions.
