Biography - Lillian Tkach-Matisons
Originally from Wildwood, Alberta Canada, Lillian has spent her entire life involved in various forms of creativity, stage acting in theatre, clothing and window display design, marketing, advertising & graphics design, writing & desktop publishing. During a career in the business environment, Lillian continued her pursuit of creative endeavors.
Teaching fine arts classes to children and adults in various Alberta communities has given Lillian the opportunity to express herself and to share her knowledge in fine arts. Art Classes For Kids has become one of the best fine arts programs offered to children in Calgary.
While Lillian works in all mediums, she has a preference for oils and acrylics. Her work conveys an emotional moody response to memories of people, places and subjects close to her heart.
Lillian is currently an active member of the Calgary and Vancouver chapters of the FCA; co-founder and prior member of various art groups.
My art has a very deep, profound connection with where Iíve been, and how I remember each fleeting moment. My paintings have special meaning to me, a sense of something important, a treasure I can share with others.
I paint what a camera cannot capture, where the essence of mood, feelings, desire, wonderment and memory intermingle with medium and color.
I enjoy the expression of paint on canvas, board or paper; I work in oils, acrylics, watercolors, and mixed medium. Painting in various styles, Impressionism, Modernism and Semi-abstract define my work.
I like to bring the passion of the old world into the present. Through layering of multiple glazes, I produce a feeling of calm and majesty that is so rare in our hectic environment. Other times, I exaggerate and play with the drama, intensity, and pace of todayís life with strong color and sweeping brush strokes.
Painting centers me. It appeals to my sense of discovery of as yet unknown possibilities. It is an expression of my creative soul.
