ESMEE TOWNLEY.
"Miss Townley, a native daughter of British Columbia, became interested in the painting of animals at an early age and took her first lessons from Mrs. Frank Hoole, well known local animal painter. Subsequently, Miss Townley went to London where she studied at the London Polytechnic School of Art and the Frobisher School of Animal Painting. The present exhibition will consist of paintings in watercolour of horses, dogs, and cats."
