margarethe vanderpas

contemporary artist inspired by the natural landscape

When Margarethe is not painting in her studio in the Bruce Peninsula, she can be spotted on foot or in a kayak in the north shore of Georgian Bay near Killarney and the rugged coastline on the Bruce Peninsula.


When you look at her work, you feel her love for the raw natural beauty of the Ontario’s landscapes and waterscapes – the waters, limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula and the shorelines of Lake Superior and Georgian Bay.


Margarethe studied art at universities in London and Kingston. She taught fine art for several years and has been an executive member of the London Arts Council. She is a signature member of the Artists for Conversation, a non-profit invitational group of nature artists from around the world.


Margarethe has been published in numerous publications. In 2006, she received a special award, the people’s choice award, for the Isthmus Bay, Bruce Peninsula exhibition at the Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery.


exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibits,  her work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.


Gordon and I are very pleased to have Margarethe part of our gallery and to so beautifully present this area of Canada.
