Brigitte Granton’s lifelong passion for the natural world is evident in her vibrant oil paintings of the Canadian landscape. Her paintings are a blend of impressionism and realism. She uses bold strokes and vibrant colours to translate the interplay of light on colour and form in the environment. She has a particular fondness for the northern Ontario landscape and regularly visits Algonquin park and the Muskoka/Parry Sound area to hike and photograph for inspiration.
Brigitte grew up with an artist father whom she would paint alongside at an early age learning colour and composition skills. While she pursued an education, an MSc. in Biology, and careers in the scientific fields of medical research and forensics , she painted regularly and experimented with various medias, eventually focussing on oils full time for the last ten years. She believes that her two passions, art and biology, complement each other well; both requiring keen observation skills.
Brigitte has won numerous awards at juried art shows and her paintings can be found in galleries, corporate logos, on flag banners and in private and corporate collections throughout the world.
