Painting is my passion…..

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world around me and love interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by books I’ve read, including famous authors and poets from the past…
Sometimes I am moved to write short stories and poems to better illustrate my point of view, but in fact the works can stand entirely on their own

Over the years, I have taught art at the college level and privately in the studio, and I have been a frequent contributor to Canada’s premier design and art magazines.
My television appearances include several popular decorating shows, my work has been featured in numerous publications, and can also be found in many private homes around the city
.

As you view my work, I hope that you will find something that resonates with you

To Sign Or Not....

A big debate is going on right now in one of my FB art groups… / A group member was asked by a client to please not sign the work they commissioned from her, as they did not like to see her signature… / What do you think? / Would you comply and not sign, sign anyway and risk their anger, sign only the back of the work, or not accept the commission and lose the sale?

Thanks so much Cindy...

Since most buyers are anonymous, it’s rare to know who they are let alone get to see my pillows in their homes, so it’s a real thrill when I do… / Thank you so much Cindy Schnackel.
