About The Artist

Juve was born on the island of Sao Miguel, Azores, Portugal.  After 32 years in education as a teacher and high school administrator in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he decided it was time to pursue his love of art and photography. Retiring to Vernon, British Columbia in 2006, he finally found the time he needed to delve into his art.

Juve's work reflects nature's seasonal landscapes, rustic scenes and wildlife.  Although his preferred medium is watercolor, he also 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.  With watercolor, he is able to capture the many wonderful 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 North and Central Okanagan Chapters of the Federation of Canadian Artists.  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.
