Colourscapes by Wendy
I am a Painter from Port Hope, Ontario. Painting since High School, Art has been a huge part of my everyday life. I attended College and University for my BA in Cultural Studies and Fine Art.
Over time, I have worked in many mediums since college, including Paint, Print, Sculpture, Pottery and Alcohol Ink. By far my favourite is Acrylic Paint. I love the consistency and the fast drying abilities, as well as its amazing vibrant colours.
I have always been intoxicated by the Canadian Landscape, Florals and Animals. Usually, I paint mainly these three, almost exclusively with Acrylic on Canvas. Usually, I like to break images down into colours and shapes with a vivid use of lines, and textures.
The current Pandemic has given me an opportunity, like so many others to tap back into my creative side. Being A Canadian is important to me and I feel it is reflected in my own one of a kind Paintings.
I’m a Mother, I’m a Lover, I’m a Sinner and a ……. No sorry that’s a song but, I am the mother of an Amazing Young Man, a Wife, to another Amazing Man and adorable puggle and run a Home Daycare Full Time in addition to being a Painter. My Paintings give me the ability to connect to the Canadian Land through the Seasons. I am captivated with Canada’s vast and diverse environments and locales as well as their ability to change from one season to the next.
I have an infinity with the Sky and Pine Trees and they are my absolute favourite thing to Paint. Some Paintings take Weeks, while others can only take hours. I feel like I can escape while I am “In” and the time can get away from me. My Paintings are Photographs taken by myself or others, and several are mashed together to create a one of a kind scene.
I hope you enjoy my one of a kind inspiration, and that one of my special pieces becomes a special piece in your home!
