"Through luminous iridescent colors in various media I desire to express positive life-affirming inspirations of art."
Agnes is an accomplished prolific freelance painter and visual artist with sales in abstract paintings in varying sizes and mediums. She began exhibiting her artwork at the age of 15 – more than 40 years ago. Her medium is acrylic on canvas and mixed media on paper.
She was born in Toronto, Canada into an artistic family. Her father was a successful artist and through his inspiration and encouragement, from early childhood, she developed her artistic talents and a love for art. Her gratitude for her father’s support is beyond measure. Even today, she says of her father, “He was one of the most talented artists I have ever seen.”
Agnes lives part-time in the Hawaiian Islands. She was drawn to Hawaii because of its exotic beauty and powerful healing energies, elements which promote her artistic talents. She also discovered that Hawaii is a grand place where angels exist in abundance. In fact, she humorously says, "Angels love to vacation in Hawaii." Her artwork is exquisite products of meditation and intimate encounters with the magical world of angels and other mystical realms.
Sold over 500 paintings internationally including Canada, Japan, Australia, England, Holland, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Taiwan, Switzerland, Korea, and many other cities in the U.S. and Hawaii.
