Maryanne Wettlaufer was born in 1965 and raised on a dairy farm near Stratford, Ontario Canada; and a graduate of the Ontario College of Art after studying Communication/Design as well as Fine Arts.
Following the pioneers of Canadian Landscape Painting she has explored Canada from coast to coast to coast.
"In 2005 I made a dramatic move to Inuvik, NWT where my journey as a full time artist/painter changed dramatically." The first of her large works began to appear and she found a niche for herself following in the steps of Emily Carr.
"After my experiences in Inuvik, I then moved to Haida Gwaii craving to expand upon my glimpse of Canada's vast landscape with a desire to develop my own creative language to express my experience of nature on a two dimensional surface... I'm still here, I'm still learning, I still love it!" (From her biography)
Maryanne Wettlaufer is a listed Canadian artist; and her works are in the National Gallery of Canada.
Haida Gwaii ("Islands of the People"), or the Queen Charlotte Islands, is an archipelago in northern British Columbia, Canada. The Haida first nation community makes up 45% of the population of the islands.
This woodcut is an early example of the wonderful paintings that were to come. Instead of her usual larger sweeping nature studies we have here an intimate look into the everlasting strength of a small flower. It almost looks as if it's made out of iron. The strength in this small work of art is still in evidence with her latest works.
