Gwen Duda

With the natural world as my inspiration, I work in an abstract manner that weaves in and out of realism but always with an expressionistic, abstraction and sometimes impressionistic influence.

Colour communication and harmony is key is my work and I use both brush and palette knife to create texture and unity. I strive to have my work evoke a feeling, memory or experience that transcends speech and intellectual obfuscation. To be direct, fresh, and directly communicate that which comes through me in a powerful, beautiful and evocative way, along with promoting the majesty, necessity and need for protection of Nature, that is my directive.

My studio is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
