Michelina Williamson is a visual artist who began her art practice as an experimental filmmaker. Williamson graduated from the Ontario College of Art’s New Media program in 1991 and exhibited work in Toronto, Montreal and Germany. In 2010 she obtained a BFA from OCAD University and the following year took up painting.

“I began to feel a disconnect within the ever-increasing digital process of filmmaking. The tactility and immediacy of painting brings more meaning to my work with a physical and emotional connection.” (Michelina Williamson)

Emotion is at the essence of Williamson’s paintings. It is the foundation, the core from which her art emerges, develops and manifests into a physical form. Her painting process is a delicate balance between conscious decisions about colour and composition and intuitive application of paint and texture. Drawing inspiration from nature, she strives to provide an emotional connection to her work for you, the viewer.

Williamson’s paintings will beautify your space and nourish your spirit.
