Barb TenEycke Fine Art

Curriculum Vitae

 

Artist Statement:

“When painting the Canadian landscape, my main interests are elemental; water, rocks, trees, skies; and I am particularly drawn to the way light interacts with these elements. Rushing water, gentle currents in a forest stream, and trees swaying in the wind are challenges that I eagerly take on. Connecting the viewer to a memory or emotion is the ultimate reward.”

Professional History:

Born in Toronto, self-taught, and currently working out of her home studio in Oakville, Barb TenEycke has been a full time artist since 2013. Barb studied interior decorating and design at Sheridan College in the late 80’s. Some basic skills in perspective drawing were acquired during this time. During her 20 plus years in the field of decorating and design, Barb took specialty courses on marbleizing techniques, among other interesting decorative paint techniques. Over the years, she developed a reputation in this field for expert knowledge and application in this area.  Barb credits her decorative painting experience, in allowing her to fast track her skills in the area of fine art painting. Similarly, her years of working with design and colour have helped to instill a general sense of composition, balance, and colour values, all coming into play in her work. TenEycke  paints full time now, and is passionate about continuing her self education, and most importantly, putting those ‘miles on the brush’! She is committed to improving her skills, while maintaining honesty and authenticity in expressing her voice as an artist.
