Eleanor at Emma Lake Studio

Eleanor Lowden began her career as a professional artist 30 years ago living in Ontario.

Her love of art began very early, and she has always expressed an interest in learning as well as making art. Eleanor studied fine arts at the University of Western Ontario, and continued her studies in art and watercolor at the Ontario College of Art, the Alberta College of Art and through various workshops to broaden her scope. In 1994 she joined the Toronto Watercolor Society . She became a signature member of the TWS and also volunteered as their publicity chairman until December 1999. Eleanor and her family made Calgary their home for fourteen years. In 2015 she moved back to Toronto where she maintains a studio in her home, and continues to paint the people and the landscape that inspires her.

A large part of her learning comes through teaching art.  She has taught the drawing class at the University of Calgary, Certificate Program and teaches “Courageous Watercolor”  and acrylic painting workshops at various venues in and around Toronto. Be sure to check out her instructional Watercolor DVD ‘Courageous Watercolour” available for purchase through this website.

Her work can be seen at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, ON,  Canvas Gallery in Toronto, ON, Gibson Fine Art  in Calgary, AB, Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, AB, White Dog Studios in Whistler, BC, Red Art Gallery in Victoria, BC , Rowles and Co. in Edmonton, AB and most recently in represented by the Manse Gallery in Baysville, Ontario.
