Hilkka Pellikka started painting about 25 years ago and what began with her testing the waters evolved as she “got more and more interested” in making art. She started working with oil, followed by acrylic, watercolours, acrylic ink and then pastel.
“I wanted to try everything,” said Pellikka. She now mostly paints in watercolour. “I'm an explorer by nature, I guess. I just wanted to try and play with all these forms.”
Most of her works depict landscapes, especially scenes of winter and water, with occasional paintings featuring still life or portraits.
“Snow is born inside me. It's part of me from childhood on,” said Pellikka, who emigrated to Canada from Finland in 1970. “Snow and water really inspire me.”
Approximately two years ago, for her innovative achievements in various mediums, ("new medium, new tricks"), Hilkka Pellikka has earned her Northern Ontario Art Association letters. She can now add NOAA after her name on future works she creates.
NOAA is a group of 16 art clubs in Northern Ontario.
