In 1979 Darlene Kulig was awarded the CSEA/Berol Prismacolour National Art Scholarship awarded to six Canadian students entering Fine Arts based on outstanding potential in visual arts. Graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design she quickly moved into a commercial setting and within four years of graduating was running her own successful design studio. Her solid understanding of design and composition can be seen in the underlying structure that anchors her painting. Always balancing art with business throughout her 25-year career as a graphic designer, Darlene won awards for her design both in Canada and the United States and also participated as a juror in design and art competitions.
Currently, Darlene is focusing her creative efforts on her painting and in 2011 her work was accepted into the prestigious 33rd Annual VAM Juried Art Show for professional artists. A member of the Etobicoke Art Group and Neilson Park Creative Centre where she studies and paints, you can find her work in Toronto area galleries, including PI Fine Art International and Images 2000’s poster catalogues, and in Barbados at The Gallery of Caribbean Art, On the Wall Gallery and Tides Art Gallery, where her canvases dance with the colour and rhythm of the islands.
Darlene lives in Toronto with her husband, 3 teenaged children and a very lively Old English Sheepdog.
