Margarethe VanderpasAFC, BA Honours, BEd, Landscapes and waterscapes of Georgian Bay & Lake Superior
I draw my inspiration from many sources; the waters and limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula and the shorelines of Lake Superior and Georgian Bay. I particularly love the north shore of Georgian Bay near Killarney and the rugged coastline near my home on the Bruce Peninsula. I am fascinated by the powerful forces that have shaped the landscape and the effects that time and weather have had upon the earths' surface.
Water has fascinated me since childhood. I delight in the discovery of rhythmic patterns created by light as it passes through water, by the ripples on its surface and how it transforms and distorts what lies beneath. These patterns inspire me not just for their beauty, but because they suggest an underlying natural order.
