Ida’s creative spirit was sparked when she took up oil painting at a very young age. From painting, to potting, to carving, and back to painting, she pushes herself outside her comfort zone to learn more. Her subject matter is influenced by her love for animals and the surrounding landscape. She is inspired by her summers spent at a remote cabin in Northern Ontario where she experiences the raw natural beauty. She works in watercolour, pastels, acrylics, and scratchart and sometimes combines several of these materials to create the beauty of the world as she sees it.
