Wyn Kalagian, Wyn began to really develop her painting skills in earnest when she retired from a lengthy nursing career in 2000. Her painting education has taken her to Vermont, North Carolina, Florida, New Mexico and Guatemala. She has studied from well-known artists such as Jeanne Carbonnetti, Jean Grastore, Jan Hart, Robert Burridge, Lila Lewis Irving and Tom Lynch.
Wyn first learned the magic of watercolour painting but now has embraced acrylic painting because of its versatility and richness. Her paintings are full of bright colour and magical qualities. She has participated in the Pumphouse Studio Tour, her own Art in the Garage show and Willowbank Art Shows. Since she appreciates and embraces what she has experienced and accomplished through her painting classes, she loves to share her painting knowledge with other who would like to undertake the same magical adventure.
..a reflection of Wyn Kalagian’s painting style: “The essence of a scene on canvas enables the viewers to use their imaginations to finish the scenes for themselves. The hope is that an impression of things half-real and half-remembered will speak to the viewer in a special way. An adventure is created between the painting and the viewer.”
