Linda Vanwyk’s work explores the naturally occuring patterns and shapes found in our own backyards. Her work focuses on the study of plants and how intricate patterns coexist and create a beautiful web of designs. “I am obsessed with leaves, whether I find them on houseplants, in the garden, or on the trees. I try to capture each unique shape, color and texture, which changes with every season and the light condition in which they exist."

Linda creates her work using an array of mediums and techniques including encaustic wax and oil monotype. Each monotype is one of a kind, creating unique patterns found in nature, much like a fingerprint. Linda collects leaves from her own garden or on trail walks around her neighbourhood. Linda paints everyday in her home studio in Burlington, Ontario. Her work can be found in private collections in Canada, England, and Europe.
