Brigitte Granton is a Canadian artist whose love of nature is reflected in her vibrant landscapes in oil and acrylic paint. She is drawn to the graphic elements in nature and represents them on canvas with bold strokes and vivid colours. Inpsired by the Group of Seven, Brigitte love for nature is evident in her work. Growing up, Brigette painted with her father at an early age. Although her formal education was in biology, which lead to a career in forensics, art was always a big part of her life. Over the years, Brigitte has taken numerous courses and workshops with various prominent artists.
Much of Brigitte’s paintings are depictions of her visits to Algonquin park, Oak Ridges Moraine, Muskoka, Parry Sound and other cities in Northern Ontario. Her more recent travels have inspired a collection of landscapes of Newfoundland, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Brigette’s style involves using bold strokes and colours with the aim of drawing attention to the colour in the landscape as a result of sunlight and shadows. Her paintings often blend realism with impressionism.
In addition to painting with oils and acrylics, Brigitte has many years of experience in creating pen and ink botanicals for the North American Native Plant Society and currently illustrates for their quarterly publication, “The Blazing Star”.
Brigitte has participated and won awards in numerous juried art shows and her works hang in galleries, on flag banners throughout King Township and in private collections.
