Artist Bio – Juve Furtado

Juve was born on the island of Sao Miguel, Azores, Portugal.  After a 32 year career in education as a teacher and high school administrator in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he retired to Vernon, British Columbia where he pursued his love of art and photography.

Juve’s work reflects nature’s seasonal landscapes, rustic scenes and wildlife.  His preferred medium is watercolor, though he sometimes paints in acrylic.  His painting style would be described as realism with strong emphasis on both light and color. Juve is a self-taught artist and prefers watercolor for its transparency, spontaneity and unpredictability.  He loves to capture the variations of light, color and textures that are found in nature.  Always with a camera in hand, he enjoys searching for his next painting while hiking in the Okanagan or traveling abroad. The images he captures become his reference material and inspiration for his paintings.

Juve resides in Vernon, British Columbia and is an AFCA member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and a member of the North and Central Okanagan Chapters.  His work has been accepted into many FCA jury-ed shows, including Lake Country’s Annual Art Walk and the Calgary Stampede Western Showcase.  Juve’s art is in private collections in Canada, the U.S. and abroad.
