Annette Vander Heide Fine Art
About the Artist
Annette Vander Heide is a local artist who has lived in the Niagara Peninsula all of her life. Her love for nature began already as a small child, with drawing and sketching being a favorite pastime. Art was put on hold for several years as she devoted her time to raising a family, but she was able to take an evening course at a local high school that started her creative journey.
Presently, she lives in rural Niagara on top of the escarpment – the perfect place to find inspiration for her artwork! Annette is self-taught and loves to incorporate as much light and colour as possible into her nature scenes to help bring them to life, as well as any other interesting elements that catch her eye. Whether it's wild flowers growing in a forest, a gorgeous sunrise or a jewel coloured hummingbird, Annette finds immense beauty and joy in nature and colour, and loves to experiment with translating what she sees onto canvas using traditional oils or acrylics.
