Gwen is an experimental expressionist painter. She has completed several series of acrylic paintings revealing the moods and energies of water – whirlpools, waterfalls, and tsunamis. For her “White Water Rapids” series, she created acrylic paintings expressing both the rugged beauty and the destructive force of white water rapids.
Gwen experienced the impact of these waters, as she walked along the White Water Walk, a close encounter with the White Water Rapids of the Niagara River in Niagara Falls, Canada. She applied many layers of colours of paint, both thick and thin, building up ridges and suggesting the froth of the rapids.
She is a member of Propeller, Gallery 1313, and an associate member of the Society of Canadian Artists. Gwen holds a B.A. from Western University, a BFA (Honours) 2005 from Ontario College of Art and Design University and a Fine Arts Certificate (Honours) from Humber College.
