an immediate feeling of contentment when you see
Trisha’s work for the first time; an unexplainable peace which seems to permeate
from the very soul of art. Perhaps it’s her ability to capture the simplicity of
everyday life’ or the gentle nuances of newly fallen snow. It is through these
works of art which leaves us spiritually restored and renewed. The world that
Trisha paints is her world – her family, her home, beloved landscapes and
buildings and the serenity of many paintings is true to life.
Born in 1951 and blessed at an early age with a recognizable talent and a
burning desire to pursue art, Trisha knew that this may not be the “road to
riches” but indeed it was the “road to
happiness”. To the humble artist from a small town in Western New York this
was a vital ingredient to inspiration.
years of tenting around Europe, visiting every national museum, and experiencing
all the wonders of the art world
was an education
that surpassed the two year formal training received through Sheridan Art
College in Oakville, Ontario. To this adventurous artist, every temporary place
called “home” was not only another chapter in her well kept journal - but
another sketch to be later transformed into a painting.
Upon her return from her last “home” in beloved Sweden, she met Gary
Peterson, the very person who discovered not only a personal love for her work
but had the vision and belief that this was something to be shared. And so, with
his care and direction, Trisha’s originals were exhibited throughout many
shows in Canada, each one more successful than the last.
After two years, this great teamwork became a marriage and with the birth
of their first child, Nathan, all paintings seemed to take on a new commitment.
A new life, as it were, for colour, light and a dimension of love. And so it was
through the birth of Tanya and Whitney, and the interaction of little lives at
play, that the ultimate resource of motherhood was fortified.
Trisha has been
honoured by many awards throughout her career including her investment into The
Order of Ontario. She has won the 1995 and 1996 Canadian Artist of the Year
Awards. The popularity of Trisha’s paintings continues to grow.
