WORK WITH

Marcela Strasdas

Tony Bianco Profile

Oil | Watercolor | Acrylic

Marcela Strasdas is an Argentinian-Canadian painter who loves painting landscapes and florals in oils.  She is greatly inspired by her love of travelling and gardening which she translates into colourful, vibrant paintings depicting the beauty found in everyday life.

Nearly 20 years ago, during one of the busiest times of her life, Marcela found herself diving into the world of art. She joined a local art club where she was exposed to a variety of artistic media and styles of work. During those first years, the time that Marcela devoted to her painting became totally sacred, a time that she could dedicate to herself. Since then, she has taken countless workshops, classes and mentorship from many renowned artists she admires. With a strong belief that there is no end to learning and growing as an artist, Marcela continues to study and learn as much as possible in her day-to-day life.

Plein-air work is an intrinsic part of her process and inspiration. She has painted in many areas of the world like BC, the Bugaboos, Italy and the Arctic just to name a few.   In her work, Marcela gets to instill her experiences: the smells, sounds, shapes, colours, darks, and lights of a moment, invoking memories and freezing them in time. Preferring to focus on the good, the positive, and the beautiful in the world, she is constantly inspired by the simple wonders in nature around her.
