About the artist:

Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Lois moved to Dundas, Ontario to raise her family. She and her Husband now reside on a farm with a Century home in the Kawarthas, which provides a picturesque setting for her to continue her painting. She was born into an artistic family, and has had a passion for painting since she was a child. She was introduced to art at an early age, being taught and inspired by her Grandmother who was an artist residing on Toronto Island.

Lois studied Technical Drawing in College and worked as a Technical Draftsperson for twenty-two years before leaving the field to pursue her interest in Fine Arts on a full-time basis. Lois has a strong foundation in drawing, painting, composition, and colour. She works primarily in oil focusing on still life subjects. The precision demanded as a Technical Draftsperson has influenced her art. Through the interplay of light, shadow, and colour, she creates a sense of drama in her still life paintings while representing beauty in everyday items. Lois is committed to sharing her art with the public.
