Linda Virio

Encaustic and Watercolour Painter

Artist Statement

Pushing paint around until I have something that pleases me is a direct response to my environment and a need to express my creativity. I live in the country, surrounded by trees, overlooking water and visited by an assortment of wildlife. Natural cycles of seasons, weather, decay and rebirth find their way into my work.

About the Artist 

  Linda Virio is a visual artist using hot wax, resin and pigment to convey her impressions of the countryside where she lives. Colour, shape, layers and texture play against each other. Rugged surfaces in nature and history are suggested by manipulating the physical surface of the wax.

Linda has great reverence and a bit of nostalgia for nearby farms, fields and forests that are rapidly changing. Those feelings are expressed stylistically in forms that range from impressionistic, to naïve and even abstract.

Linda lives and works out of her country studio near Bowmanville, Ontario. She shows her work and teaches encaustic workshops in several local galleries.
