Matthew Wolferstan's representational watercolours are of local scenes familiar to any who know and love Victoria, and B.C.'s coastal waters. Born and raised in Victoria, Wolferstan gives an "insider's" look at the area, through his paintings. His watercolours are very precise, with close attention to detail, while still maintaining a feel for the subject and overall mood of the piece. Mostly self-taught, Wolferstan's formal training includes one year at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, instruction in portrait painting in oils with local portraitist David Goatley, and plein air studies, in Italy, with British watercolourist Alan Reed.
