Rebecca Mason - About Artist
Rebecca Mason from Chelsea Quebec, Canada, studied at the Ontario
College of Art in Toronto where she first developed her unique painting style. Working on
handcrafted sheets of Japanese paper, Mason takes inspiration from her natural surroundings
with water, trees, canoes and mountains as the central themes.
“Responding to my environment as an expressive colourist, I use nature
as my inspiration. It is somewhat like writing a poem on the page
using watercolour and brushes as the vehicle to capture my sense of place."
Rebecca has exhibited her work in Ontario and Quebec since 1988. She has participated
in a wide array of exhibitions at galleries, juried exhibitions and art events.
Some of the group and solo exhibition spaces she has shown at are; The Cube
McKenzie Marcotte, Casino de Hull, Galerie Old Chelsea, Ottawa City Hall, Maison du Citoyen à Hull,
Ottawa Art Gallery Rentals and Sales, Museum of Nature, Joineryco Gallery,
McDonald-Cartier International Airport, Santé Restaurant-Gallery, Conseil
régional de l’environnement, Ottawa Civic Centre, and the Chateau
Rebecca is passionate about canoeing and the environment and she
explores these subjects through her painting, writing, environmental
activism, and as well as her speaking projects. She has contributed to
many publications including, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society book,
Rendezvous with the Wild, The Boreal Forest of
which two of her paintings are profiled. Her work can be found in private
collections in Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe.
