About Elissa Anthony/ James Cherry

Elissa Anthony was born in Ontario and grew up in North Vancouver. She studied Art at George Brown College. Elissa then worked in a variety of art related jobs including printing, display and scenic art. Ever the restless spirit she traveled to Europe and spent 4 yrs studying fine art part time while traveling throughout Europe visiting major galleries and museums redefining her understanding of Art. In 1997 Elissa moved to Vancouver Island and the move proved inspirational. She developed her own style and sense of colour shortly thereafter. She paints in the expressionist style, her style is optimistic and relaxing to the viewer, and her colours are crisp, clean and vibrant.. Elissa captures emotion and soul on canvas. Her paintings grace homes in Europe , North America and Japan. You can find her work at Englishman River Gallery in Parksville, Nanaimo Art Gallery on Commercial street in Nanaimo, Art West on the highway to Port Alberni, the Waterlily Gallery in Ucluelet, The Shorewind Gallery in Tofino, and at her newly renovated studio “The MonElissa” in Bowser. She also teaches various forms and techniques of art to adults and children at her studio “MonElissa“, in Bowser. She loves to share with others the joys she has found in the art world. Elissa Anthony, artist/ teacher, MonElissa Studio.

Elissa Anthony/ James Cherry purchased this house in 2002

Why Elissa Anthony/ James Cherry chose Bowser

I chose this property because it had a building which I converted into a studio/ gallery. I then went about developing the downstairs into a lovely retreat suite. Come and stay, relax, enjoy. I love the closeness of the ocean and in the spring I can hear the Seals and Eagles making the most of the herring run. I paint full time and teach here at my studio/gallery. My husband loves playing his guitar, riding his bike and looking after our beautiful gardens in his newly retired lifestyle.

What makes this house unique

Its a 5 minute walk to the Village of Bowser where you can visit the library or the Art Gallery at The Salish Sea Market or enjoy a cup of coffee and lunch at the Bean Counter. It is a 3 minute walk to the beach from here. Park your boat or RV here. Then drive 5 minutes to Deep Bay Marina and launch your boat. Many walking trails abound. Kayaking rentals nearby. Bikes available upon request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful relaxing time we had. The suite is large and offers all the comforts of home.Although it is not right on the beach, we could walk to a very secluded beach where we spent lots of afternoons. My husband and I took several art lessons. I never thought I could paint a landscape but with Elissa's guidance I completed my first landscape painting! When we got home my daughter laid claim to it for their new home! All in all a memorable trip. Elissa is a great hostess........Gail
