Born in Toronto, and currently living and working from her home in Oakville, Barb TenEycke is a self-taught painter with a reverence for the diverse landscape of Ontario. A full time artist since 2013, she has exhibited in numerous shows, including at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg. She is fascinated by lighting and atmosphere, and her work is said to invoke feelings of serenity. Having a background in interior design, Barb enjoys working with clients on custom commission work.
“My main interests are elemental; water, rocks, trees, skies; and the way light and atmosphere interact with these elements. Rushing water, gentle currents in a forest stream and trees swaying in the wind- catch my interest, challenge me, and compel me to paint. Connecting a viewer to a memory or emotion is the ultimate reward.”
