Eleanor has been painting professionally for almost 35 years. After studying fine arts at the University of Western Ontario, Eleanor worked in advertising and took evening classes at OCAD. In 2000 she and her family moved to Calgary until 2014. She now lives back in her hometown of Toronto where she paints out of her home studio alongside her dog Rigby.


Eleanor has exhibited in group and solo shows in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Collingwood, London, and Miami. Her paintings have received numerous awards in many juried and non-juried shows. She is represented by several galleries across Canada and her work is found in collections around the world.


Eleanor’s acrylic paintings explore a variety of subject matter. Fascinated by people and inspired to paint them in daily settings, the pandemic has also made Eleanor focus inward and on the positive.


“My work is an interpretation of life from a happy point of

view. My style plays with patterns and repetition of forms, it is both illustrative and impressionistic too. I am inspired by many things. Country roads, umbrellas, trees, polka dots, mass cultural objects, people, dogs, and most recently, spring flowers. Through these differing subjects, I am continually exploring unique compositions while creating bright, luminous paintings with my own unique color palette and marks.”

She has released a new body of work she calls her ‘joyful garden’ series. Her daily walks in the ravine with her dog have also provided her with another source of inspiration. While she continues to return to familiar themes, like her popular umbrella series, she is always open to fresh ideas.

“I want the viewer to spend time contemplating the painting process as well as the story I am telling”
