Ottawa, Ontario

Internationally recognized, award winning, Ottawa artist, Margaret Chwialkowska, was born and educated in Poland. Today she works primarily in the Ottawa area, focusing on the banks of the Ottawa River and the forests of the Gatineau Hills, working to capture both, its timeless grandeur and the ever-changing moods.She paints “alla prima," blending pigments together on canvas using a palette knife; this technique permits a loose, spontaneous style allowing texture to evolve naturally. The goal of her painting is to evoke the mood of a natural setting and to capture the feeling of being overwhelmed by the natural, almost magical beauty of a landscape. Her nature inspired work is charged with vibrant, almost fantastical colours and dramatic texture. She is represented by Art Galleries in Canada and her works are in private and corporate collections in Canada, US and Europe.
