Renata Bradshaw is a landscape artist based out of Burlington, Ontario. Renata works primarily in pastel, enjoying the rich colour and luscious texture of the medium. An avid canoe tripper, Renata is inspired by the natural beauty of the Canadian landscape and often enjoys sketching and planning paintings right from her floating canoe. Combining outdoor sketching with studio work, Renata depicts her impressions of the natural scenes that move her, with the aim to share not just the beauty of the land around us but also to evoke the peace and therapeutic quality of nature with the viewer.
Renata is a member of the Burlington Fine Arts Association and a Signature Member of Pastel Artists Canada (PAC). Her work can be found in many private collections across Canada.
“I feel a great sense of awe for the beauty of the natural world around us. People benefit from being immersed in nature. It is my hope that the images I capture evoke in the viewer the feelings of peace and inner joy that these beautiful places bring me.”
