Trish is an artist, teacher, writer and mother. She is best known for her oil and acrylic paintings of pelicans, birch trees and polar bears. Trish uses a variety of art media when creating art including pen and ink, watercolour, acrylic and oil paint. Recently, she has begun to create a variety of products such as bags, carry-alls and pillows with her art on them so that her collectors can surround themselves with art.
The environment and nature play an important role in her art work. Trish is very passionate about the environment and Lake Winnipeg. Her love for Lake Winnipeg has been a primary area of inspiration in her artwork for the past many years. Her goal is to evoke a sense of beauty for the natural environment through her work.
Throughout the summer, she can be found sketching and finding sources of inspiration along the shores of Lake Winnipeg at Victoria Beach or in the back yard of her cottage at her painting easel. She is captivated by the way light plays off of the birch trees, pelicans, snowy owls and polar bears which have been her main subjects of inspiration.
While planning her art piece she creates a relationship between the viewer and the main subject of art through composition, shape and form. Her strong sense of colour is created by the layers of paint she uses and creates richness, warmth and depth in her art pieces. Trish’s art can be found in private collections throughout North America. Her work can be seen on Instagram at @trishsartshed or on facebook at The Art Shed.
