Growing up in Toronto Aunaray C. Clusiau aka Carol Clusiau was blessed by location to frequent the plethora of art galleries available to her. A rigorous enthusiasm prompted her to take her first art classes at the Ontario College of Art where the instructors invited models right off the street, with large-bellies, lots of wrinkles, wearing nothing but a bottle of rum. Little did she know she would spend the next seven years as an art student, unwilling to give up the pleasures of so many tools and mediums. Engaging in everything possible from sculpture, photography, painting and drawing to pottery and performance. It was impossible to narrow down the choices to just one major. After apprenticing in Victoria BC with Mexican painter Luis Merino, she was accepted into The Emily Carr College of Art and Design and was well on her way to becoming a painter herself. Aunaray can now be found expressing ideas through paining in her Studio at The Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna BC. Her unique process painting techniques produce impressionistic contemporary artwork, reflecting her playful and inquisitive personality.
