â€œWelcome to my whimsical, magical garden.
This is where I come to play.
This is where I come to heal.â€
Ann-Marie Cheung is inspired by the natural world, mythology and dreams. Â Many of her paintings are whimsical, colourful and playful. She mainly creates using acrylic paint but also explores mixed media, pen and ink, encaustic and glass.
Her recent body of workÂ â€œThe Healing Gardenâ€Â explores spirituality and the process of art as a healing tool.Â These present creations investigate colour, texture and patterns combining ancient symbols and mythologies to create something mystical, joyful and primitive.
Ann-Marie graduated from theÂ Ontario College of ArtÂ in 1984 from the general studies program and in 2012 obtainedÂ The Royal Conservatory, Learning Through the ArtsÂ® (LTTA) Artist-Educator Foundations Course Certificate.Â Her work has been purchased by the Canada Council Art Bank and has been published in â€œZen Doodle Tons of Tanglesâ€ (2013). She has had numerous exhibits across Canada and has work in private and public collections around the world.
