A water colourist, Glenda Davies gains her vision and style from the varied shapes, colours, textures and patterns of nature’s bounty found around her Muskoka home on the Moon River in Bala. Whether her subject is autumn tinged oak leaves, luscious blueberries, striking rudebeckias, Muskoka’s finest cone flowers or the bold shape of Ontario Trilliums, the vibrant colours and unique patterning found in nature are subjects for Glenda’s brush.
Close-up views, moments in time un-obscured by backgrounds, invite the viewer to pause and observe previously unnoticed treasures in nature’s canvas. In painting, as in life, Glenda’s eye is transfixed by the beauty she sees around her. Viewing Glenda’s paintings one cannot help but slow down, appreciate and be inspired by nature’s simple beauties.
A graduate of the Fine Art Studio, University of Toronto, a former student of Jack Reid, James Bessey and Doris McCarthy, her participation in many Canadian artist’s workshops has aided her on her journey to discover her own vision. She has been an art instructor in Scarborough and is one of the originators of the Muskoka Lakes Spring Art Tour.
