Lian Canty Artist cover
Description As early as I can remember, I have been in love with creating art. My father was a taxidermist, specializing in fish. While watching him, I became fascinated with the process where he would delicately restore the colorful fish to their living splendor.

My artistic abilities were apparent to my family, so they encouraged me to pursue my passion. I enrolled at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, graduating with a degree in Illustration and Design.
The following year, I moved to Crested Butte, Colorado and opened Rendezvous Gallery & Framing.

I have consistently produced new artwork with various mediums, styles, and inspirations. From creating detailed botanicals, to elegant calligraphy, to stylized posters, to vibrant plein aire paintings, to my current sensual figurative work, my surroundings and life always influence my work.

Over the years I have also spawned and raised two children, They have become my best teachers, mentors and critics.

I am constantly in pursuit of elegant, personal and intimate expressions. To achieve this, I use floral images, human figures, and calligraphy, sometimes blended into intriguing compositions. Always evolving as an artist, I strive to express myself and communicate through my paintings.
