The Wildman Studio:
The Wildman Studio is owned and operated by Willi Wildman in the town of Thornbury. For the last ten years Willi has welcomed artists and students to her home and studio to paint and share information, impart skills, and inspiration. The participants include “post-graduate” artists as well as inexperienced Sunday painters from all walks of life. The mix provides stimulation, some hilarity and often a wonderful explosion of talents and creativity.
Wildman is a well-known artist in the community; large, powerful, and moody landscapes are her signature.
Willi recently stepped down from the Blue Mountains Public Library Arts Advisory Council after ten years of organizing art exhibits at the beautiful library gallery.
Before moving to Thornbury, Willi worked tirelessly with the BMFA (Blue Mountain Foundation of the Arts) Visual Arts Committee as well as Collingwood Library Gallery and was a founder of the Georgian Bay Arts and Crafts Association. Along with numerous juried show awards, Wildman was nominated in 1994 for The Chalmers Award for Creativity and Excellence in the Arts.
Wildman continues to engage the artistic community with her art classes and passionate paintings of our landscape.
