Nirmala Greenwell

A love for drawing led to painting in watercolour, acrylic and oil.  Her work covers a broad range of
subject matter evocative of a time and place.

Award winning artist, Nirmala was born and educated in Trinidad, West Indies, and UBC.  Her studies included a focus on Indian, Chinese and Japanese art, the history of art, design fundamentals and the techniques of the old masters.  Instructors Tony Onley and BC Binning were among many of her influential teachers.

Nirmala enjoys the challenges of paining plein air as well as commissioned and studio projects, and portraiture.  Her paintings reflect her fascination with light and atmosphere.

Travels to India, Mexico and various art museums in Europe coupled with an appreciation of the old masters and art culture in general continue to inspire her.

Nirmala has been an enthusiastic members of the Victoria Sketch Club since 2008.  She was honoured to receive the Best Work on Canvas at the Sidney Fine Art Show 2007, Juror's Choice and Honourable Mention awards in other exhibitions.  She has participated in numerous joint and solo exhibitions as well as artist in residence at Laurel Point in Artishow and TD Moss street paint-in to name a few.

Her paintings are in private collections in Canada, Mexico, Barbados, Trinidad, US, UK and Japan.  Visit her website to see more of her art and latest paintings.
