She has gained much popularity as an instructor for many watercolor workshops in the United States and Europe. Watercolor demonstrations are part of her busy schedule, including Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Florida Watercolor Society, and of course workshops throughout the United States.
“I love the fluid nature of watercolor. To me, the interaction of artist with the medium is like a dance – full of motion, feeling, and expression. Discovering new color and composition as the painting develops is my joy. As a teacher, my goal is to enable the students to find their connections with watercolor in new and expressive ways.” ~Janet Rogers, AWS

From his home in Calgary, Brent Laycock draws inspiration from the mountains, foothills, prairies and parklands in the magnificent Alberta landscape. He finds that communicating an emotional response to these scenes is more important than detailed representation. For most of his career he has worked in watercolor or in acrylic using a fluid, spontaneous style, whereby paint is applied in bold, direct strokes rather than conforming to a preliminary drawing.
His awards in Canadian, American and international competition are numerous. His work is found in numerous corporate collections, including a mural created for a Hyatt Regency Hotel that measures half a football field. He is represented in a collection of Canadian watercolors that was presented to Her Majesty's Royal Collection at Windsor Castle in 1986, and in 1991 the Alberta Government presented one of his watercolors to Queen Margrethe of Denmark. Two of his paintings were used for Canadian stamps, and he has appeared on the back cover of Reader's Digest.
Brent Laycock received his MFA from Brigham Young University and his work is represented in their University collection.
Laycock is published widely within Canada, but also in Best of Worldwide Watermedia Artists (2010) and International Artist Magazine. Over a hundred of his works are represented in the book Waterton: Brush and Pen, and he has produced two instructional DVDs.
