Paint & Sip with BC artist Tara Higgins at Rocky Mountain Flatbread Kitsilano

This was a wonderful idea that turned into a wonderful night of art, eating and conversation.

BC artist​ Tara Higgins, in town to showcase her paintings at Art! Vancouver! She happens to be the sister of one of the owners. The restaurant invited media to come and paint a canvas, as well to taste their new spring menu salads, pastas, flatbreads and cocktails.

Triple Berry Mojito

I loved the Triple Berry Mojito, I also tried the Shaken Margarita​.

Tasting of their new Spring menu included some amazing new artisan pizzas, salads & pastas.

Farmers Flatbread

The Fig & Brie

My favourite pizzas of the night were the Farmers Flatbread topped with freshly harvested Fiddleheads and more veggie goodness; The Fig & Brie; and the Tequila Cod and Shrimp Pizza.

Paint your own birch tree canvas. Tara lead us you through a step by step process to create our own birch tree master piece. Here is my masterpiece from start to finish.

Tara Higgins’ bold brush strokes and intuitive sense of colour allow her paintings to become striking impressions of the unrefined, richly textured landscapes that inspire her. Drawn to painting from an early age she has studied it’s nuances in Oxford, England; Venice, Italy; Amsterdam, Holland and in the USA. After graduating from university with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Tara continued her study of painting under the mentorship of K.B. Hancock, a world-renowned landscape painter. She has also had the privilege of a mentorship with the reputed Canadian figurative artist Angela Morgan.

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Kitsilano is located at 1876 W 1st Ave in Vancouver.
