Bernice Phillips 2018



Several years ago while attending the Winnipeg Folk Festival I was browsing through the hand made village when I came across a tole painter.  I was struck by the beautiful strokes of these paintings and thought to myself ” if I could paint like that I could die a happy woman”.  I decided to take a acrylic tole painting workshop and was hooked on painting.  Then I started to paint on different surfaces (canvas, wood, terra cotta and plastic) to try new things.

As the years passed I tried new medias watercolour, oil, and mixed media.  In the last couple of years I have been experimenting with all of these working on many different surfaces, and styles like reverse painting. I am pleased to announce a new line of pendants  painted on glass using the inspiration of nature.  I feel so blessed to to be living in this boreal forest which inspires my life and art everyday!
