Ingrid Whitaker's artistic journey traverses continents and captures the essence of her diverse life experiences. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, she found her creative roots as a child and carried them across the world, being raised in London, England, and Brampton, Ontario, and spending her summers in the idyllic setting of Bancroft, Ontario.

Ingrid's passion for art is an intrinsic part of her existence. As a multi-faceted artist, her canvas becomes a portal into the rich tapestry of human emotions and the enchantment of the everyday world. Her work spans three distinctive realms, each with its own unique perspective.

In her portraiture, Ingrid seeks to unveil the extraordinary expressions and hidden emotions residing within each individual. Every brushstroke is a quest to illuminate the human spirit, creating a visual symphony of emotions that resonates with the viewer.

With her still life compositions, Ingrid endeavors to immortalize the beauty embedded in the quotidian aspects of life. Through her meticulous brushwork, she transforms everyday objects into timeless treasures, inviting us to appreciate the beauty that often escapes our hurried gaze.

In her landscape paintings, Ingrid's creations are an evocative synthesis of her extensive travels across the globe and the diverse European landscapes she's called home. Her landscapes serve as a kaleidoscope of memories, transporting viewers to picturesque locales.

Ingrid's preferred mediums are acrylics and oils, but it is with oils on smooth surfaces where she thrives. This choice grants her the freedom to manipulate the paint over an extended period, ensuring her creations attain the desired depth and nuance.

One of Ingrid's  cherished series, the Birch Bark collection, finds inspiration in her nature walks in Bancroft, Ontario. She scours the area for intriguing pieces of birch bark, seamlessly incorporating them into her artwork. For her, this practice is more than just artistic expression; it's a way to bring a piece of nature's  enchantment into the home.

Ingrid Whitaker's art is an eclectic symphony of the human experience, daily life's beauty, and the wanderlust-inspired landscapes. With each stroke of her brush, she invites you to embark on a journey through the canvas, to explore the world as she sees it, and to find solace in the embrace of nature's raw beauty.
