Artist Statement

Plenair at Niagara on the Lake

My name is Gloria Kingma and I have been painting in various mediums for many years. God has granted me the ability to see the wonders of His creation. The world is my canvas and my purpose is to capture the beauty displayed in everyday things.

I live and work in the small town of Dunnville, ON which is situated on the banks of the Grand River not far from Lake Erie. My studio is located in a century old brick building complete with creaky hardwood floors and an abundance of light to paint by. I feel so blessed to have such an inspirational space to work in.

The play of light as it enhances colour and bounces across objects is all I need to get me into my studio and start the creative juices flowing.

There are many mediums to express one's artistic voice. I work mainly in acrylic, watercolour, pastel and encaustic.

Welcome to my website and feel free to view the paintings displayed and leave any comments or feedback. Thank you.
