"I love to "push paint around", mixing colors and mediums directly on the canvas. Colors, shapes, and textures are sought, and I use a variety of techniques and materials to create very different styles. I often paint intuitively, following the creative expression rather than dictating it."
Cape Breton artist Celeste Friesen grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and now resides at the northeastern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. It is this spectacular setting that provides much of the inspiration for her paintings. Celeste has studied art in both the USA and Canada. She exhibits frequently throughout Cape Breton, and previously in the Washington DC area. Her award-winning work can be seen in many galleries in Cape Breton Island and is collected across Canada, the USA and Germany.
Celeste holds a Master’s of Arts degree from Marymount University, Virginia, USA and a Bachelor’s from York University, Toronto, Canada.
