Original art crafted with passion.

Anita Bunt

Artist Bio

Sudbury, Ontario
I am a Northern Ontario artist who works in various mediums such as oil, pastel, acrylic and watercolour. The love of the northern landscape continues to inspire me to want to express it with these mediums. I work mostly on stretched canvas and masonite board that have been gessoed. Lately I have been working mostly in oils because of it’s richness of colour and texture. Also I have been doing more plein air painting and oil just lends itself well to this. I am basically a self taught artist through books, DVD’s, and belonging to art clubs. Through these clubs I have had the opportunity to take many workshops with some great Canadian artists such as Brian Ateyo, Sam Panoessa, Ivan Wheele, John David Anderson, Gordon Mackenzie to name a few. These artists are invaluable for sharing their knowledge with us. Other artists who inspire me are Richard Schmid, Albert Handell and Marilyn Simandle. My paintings for the most part will be sold unframed to keep down the costs of the frames themselves and cost of shipping.
To be out in nature is where I feel most relaxed and connected to this world. When I come across a particular quality of light and colour in the landscape that’s what inspires me to paint. Nature has a way of endlessly presenting herself in awe inspiring ways and so the adventure of finding it is what keeps the journey exciting. My mission is to capture the feeling in a way that the viewer can connect. To quote Robert Henri…” The object isn’t to make art, it’s to be in that wonderful state that makes art inevitable”.
