Eleanor Lowden – Artist

“My work is an interpretation of life from a happy point of view."

Eleanor Lowden

Eleanor Lowden finds inspiration in everyday activities and universal themes. The common elements in her paintings are; her use of bright colours and neutral greys, and how she layers colours and employs repetitive patterns in her work. She creates depth and textures with her use of polka dots and other various marks made with stencils, along with just playful mark-making. There are elements in each painting to enjoy from a distance and close up to see the endless detail in her work.

“My style plays with patterns and repetition of forms. My main sources of inspiration are crowds of people, umbrellas, trees, polka dots, mass cultural objects, candy and most recently, spring flowers. Through these differing subjects, I am continually exploring unique compositions while creating bright, luminous paintings built up through many layers of acrylic paint.”

Eleanor began her career more than 30 years ago in Toronto. She studied fine arts at the University of Western Ontario, and continued her studies at the Ontario College of Art and then at the Alberta College of Art. Throughout her career, she has participated in various workshops and artist retreats to further her learning.

Eleanor is a member of the Ontario Society of Artists. Her work can be found in private collections throughout Canada.
