  Feature Artist Bio

By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary Canadian landscape painter Holly Friesen (born 1959 in Saskatchewan, Canada).

Holly studied Visual Arts at John Abbott College in Montreal and painting at York University in Toronto. Through many years of travel she discovered the portability of watercolours and honed her skills by painting on location.

 

Settling in Mont-Tremblant, QC, Holly opened Artbeat Studio where she painted and taught for 20 years. While living and working in the Laurentians she painted from close observation of nature. She rediscovered the luscious physicality of oils and the textural versatility of acrylics. The scale of her paintings continually grew to accommodate the large movement she felt within herself and the earth around her. Her newest pieces are largely informed by internal metaphors and dream images she encounters when painting from inside the landscape.

Holly's contemporary landscape paintings are found in private and corporate collections around the world.
