MARGARETHE VANDERPAS
Canadian Artist

I draw my inspiration from many sources; the waters and limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula and the shorelines of Lake Superior and Georgian Bay. I am fascinated by the powerful forces that have shaped the landscape and the effects that time and weather have had upon the earths' surface.


Each year I explore new regions on foot and by kayak, aiming to capture the waters and unique worn, weathered rock formations of the Canadian Shield. In recent years I have been spending more time on the Bruce Peninsula, exploring and painting its pristine waters and rugged coastline.


The areas I have painted include:


> The Bruce Peninsula


> Killarney on the North Shore of Georgian Bay


> The Fox Islands on the North Shore of Georgian Bay


> The Eastern Shores of Georgian Bay


> Lake Superior


> Western Canada
