Aug. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- Saskatoon, SK- A well-known Canadian artist and author is placing a number of original paintings up for sale in anticipation of a major transition in the artist’s career. Beate Epp, whose paintings are known for their expressiveness and dramatic use of colours, is shortly moving to Mexico. She and her husband will be opening up a raw and vegan B&B retreat in the Yucatan Peninsula.

The art sale will provide collectors with a rare opportunity to own pieces that have never been offered to the public before, says Epp: “These are not paintings I would normally even be putting up for sale. They’re pieces I just love. But we’re facing such a large move with all our animals that we had to make some tough decisions.”

Beate originally hails from Germany, but has called Canada her home for 12 years. Leaving the country has not been an easy decision for the artist, who has found inspiration in so many aspects of her life here. It’s part of the reason she is selling a number of her works:

“As hard as it is for me to part with many of these pieces, I would really like them to stay here, in the country. So many of the pieces were influenced by Canadian life and the natural beauty of this land, it seems only fitting that they be appreciated by the people living in the places that helped inspire them.”

Epp’s work was profiled in New York’s Gallery & Studio magazine and likened to the work of Georgia O’Keefe, Marsden Hartley and Rockwell Kent. Several of the pieces up for sale are inspired by her popular children’s book The Magical Horses, the sequel to which is due out this fall.
