Canadian artist, Ingrid Connidis, began to paint in 1995 while living in Aix-en-Provence, France during a sabbatical year from the University of Western Ontario where she is a Professor of Sociology. Ingrid paints on site and indoors, usually in oil or acrylic. She has had two solo exhibits at The ARTS Project in London(in March, 2012 and October, 2014) and one solo exhibit at the Sage Café in Toronto (May, 2015) where she displayed paintings on a variety of subjects including landscapes, houses, crows, trees and animals.

A member of the Lambeth Art Association and the Gallery Painting Group, Ingrid's work has been shown and sold at Michael Gibson Gallery (London, Canada), The Portside Gallery (Port Stanley), Museum London, the Lambeth Art Association Annual Show and Sale, the ARTS Project, The Art Exchange, the Gallery Painting Group Annual Show and Westland Gallery (all in London) and at the Sage Café (Toronto).

Those familiar with her paintings often describe them as happy and whimsical, no doubt a reflection of her outlook when she is at the easel.

Artist's Statement

I'm drawn to colour and the outdoors and am especially happy when I can paint surrounded by nature or tucked cozily indoors when it is too cold to be outside. Old homes, land and water, trees, crows and animals are all sources of inspiration and contentment. Painting allows me to spend time with the scenes and creatures that move me and to share that feeling with others.
