Darlene Winfield is an award winning Canadian artist whose work is held in several private and corporate collections in Canada, Scotland and Netherlands. Her work has been showcased at various art galleries in Ontario as well as at numerous juried art shows including the ground-breaking 2015 Shmita/Seven Generations Show at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre in Toronto. In January 2017, Rogers Cable TV, York Region, featured Darlene and her work in the segment Colour and Vision: Portraits in Art.
Darlene’s art mainly focuses on oil paintings of the Canadian landscape. Her style is representational combined with semi abstract done with the palette knife. Darlene’s work is completed in layers with a very dramatic yet reflective quiet touch. She explores relationships through nature and the atmosphere within the painting itself. The trees represent feelings, families and individuals and are painted as though they are portraits caught in action.
Darlene has studied art, art history and business in school and attended workshops. The need to be able to connect with people through art is what drives her to paint. Darlene finds it a great joy to be able to have people fall in love with her art and want to live with a piece of her creative world in their home.
