All Artists Cultural Organizations Partners Spaces Terra Simieritsch Contact firstname.lastname@example.org Back to Listing Visual Arts Terra Simieritsch Terra Simieritsch is a Calgary based artist with a seasonal approach. In the summer she can be found adventuring in the outdoors with her family and a backpack full of sketchbooks, pens and watercolours. These sketches become a treasury of the beautiful memories of time spent canoeing, hiking and camping across Western Canada and the United States of America. In the colder months, Terra spends time in the studio creating eclectic mixed media pieces on board which build upon the fine art skills and more abstract components she has gained by attending classes and various types of workshops. Many of her pieces blend realism with abstract and mark making components. She utilizes everything from acrylic paint, chiyogami paper, tissue paper to pencil crayons and pastels in her paintings. Her inspiration comes from time spent in the natural world and her work ranges from landscapes to portraits of the bugs, birds, animals and found objects she admires. Her work is currently in homes across Canada, the USA and Europe. Work can be purchased directly through Terra, the Leighton Art Centre or Lineham House Galleries in Okotoks. Terra is available for commissions and teaches mixed media and watercolour. She can be reached at email@example.com.
