ABOUT COLOURSCAPES BY WENDY
I am a Painter from Port Hope, Ontario. I have been painting since High School, but Art has been a huge part of my everyday life after attending College and University for my BA in Cultural Studies and Fine Art. I have worked in many mediums since college, including Paint, Print, Sculpture, Pottery and Alcohol Ink. But 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. I paint mainly these three, almost exclusively with Acrylic on Canvas. I like to break images down into colours and shapes with a vivid use of lines, and textures. I create my Paintings using either Photos from either taken by myself or someone I personally know. Sometimes it takes a couple Photos to create a Painting.
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 hope you enjoy my one of a kind inspiration, and that one of my special pieces becomes a special piece in your home!
I am 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 and Landscapes. I am captivated with Canada’s vast and diverse environments and locals 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.
