Lock returned to the Okanagan in 1992, and since then, she has been exhibiting throughout the Okanagan and the Lower Mainland. Lock employs a variety of mediums such as graphite, oil, pastel and acrylic on paper, board and canvas.
Drawing became an important aspect in achieving her artistic vision. The series of drawings she creates tends to be open-ended, continuous and evolving. These documents of unresolved reality become the templates for Lock’s future explorations in painting. The paintings themselves become a compilation displaying figurative and landscape elements.
Lock’s exhibitions include: ‘Place Explained…’ The Art Ark Gallery, Kelowna 2006, ‘You told me once, but I forgot’ Vertigo Gallery, Vernon 2005, ‘Crush’ Art Gallery of the South Okanagan, Penticton 2004, ‘Artropolis’, Vancouver 2001, ‘New Work’ Alternator Gallery, Kelowna 1997 and ‘Strange Patterns’ Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond 1997.
