Connie Geerts DescriptionConnie Geerts was born in 1965 and raised in rural Ontario, Canada. In 1985 she moved to the West Coast where she began her art career.
A passion for nature and a keen sense of colour are the guiding impulses behind Connie’s paintings. The Fauvists, Vincent Van Gogh and contemporary painter Wolf Kahn provide some of the inspiration for her brightly hued landscapes. Delicate brush work layered thinly in acrylics created lusciously coloured paintings of unique charm. “Through the use of colour and composition I establish a mood, giving a sense of time and place rather than an accurate representation of a geographical location.”
Connie has attended a number of professional development courses to increase her skills and to support her continuing growth as an artist. Now living in Calgary, Alberta, Connie Geerts is a member of the Centennial Gallery and the Calgary Artist’s Society.
