About the Artist:
Annette Blady was born in Toronto, Canada. In 1980 she graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design. She became a partner in an architectural technology company and rose to international prominence as an interior designer, creating works for major projects such as The Nieman Marcus Centre in Chicago, Harbourfront in Toronto, and The World Financial Centre in Battery Park, New York City. In 1989 Annette moved on from design work to pursue a full time career in fine art.
Exhibiting internationally, Annette’s canvases can now be found in many prominent galleries and private collections in Canada, the United States, and in Europe. The broad repertoire ranges from artworks of chromatic exuberance to soft and poignant elegance. Blady’s eclectic style uses textured exotic papers and fabrics, cut glass, and metallic acrylic, as mixed media collage painting, linking motifs from ancient symbolism with those of modern design and abstract expressionism.
About Her Art:
First, she adds paint to the canvas, then collage with papers, glass, and fabrics. Then she works in texture, movement, and images. She states that "The process is a building of layers. Like creating a flower's bud, I keep adding and experimenting. Staying on the path, I explore what is in and on the paint." You can also visit her personal website:
