Mary-Jane Moffett was born in Africa and moved to England at a young age where she was schooled in Art. Her passion for being creative was reflected in her high grades in fine art. After moving to Canada in 1974 she studied art at several institutions while establishing herself as a graphic artist. She entered into the applied arts and operated a successful designer decoration business using her skills in fabric design and the application of it to soft furnishings. In recent years she lived in Australia and studied Botanical Art in Melbourne under a highly respected and successful botanical artist. Her watercolors are brought to life by a fusion of the intricate skills learned in botanical studies and her love of the natural world which includes a variety of animal life especially the local animals that reside in British Columbia. Now residing in British Columbia with her family she operates Stitch and Paint Whistler where her original paintings are transferred and sold in many forms including greeting cards, prints, her own line of fabrics and designs created for packaging. Her unique collection is also used to create beautiful soft furnishings for the home and office.
