Vivian De Winter | writer & artist

Looking back over the years, art and writing have always been a major part of my life, although the partnership wasn't always balanced. During my school years, if I was given the choice between writing a book review or creating an advertising poster for that book, I always chose the poster.

From crayons, to pencils, to oil paints, to acrylics, to pastels - it's been a wonderful ride.

For the most part, I'm inspired by nature. The colours, contrasts and textures are always changing. So much beauty, if we just take the time to see it:
  • The transparent petals of tulips.
  • Foreboding clouds veiled with a layer of brooding grey and mauve.
  • The tops of ripened wheat fields swaying to and fro as if trying to mimic the shallow waves of a lake.
  • Beautiful aqua-hued eggs, still in their nest, grounded without fulfilling their potential.
Nature is wondrous. When was the last time you noticed?

Please enjoy a few samples of some of the pieces I've created throughout the years…
