Annette Kraft van Ermel

Annette Kraft van Ermel grew up on a tree nursery near Belle River, a small town in southwestern Ontario. In 1987 she moved to Toronto to pursue formal studies in art and in 1992 she completed her BFA at York University. The paintings of Annette Kraft van Ermel are a quiet celebration of beauty in the small details of life - the familiar and the commonly unnoticed. Emerging through layers of oil, wax and charcoal, subjects are obscured yet still hold structure resulting in a very compelling dynamic tension. Annette's mission is to hold onto small moments of grace against the erosive passage of time. Annette's art appears in private collections in New York City, England, the Netherlands, Australia and across Canada. Annette currently lives and paints in Waterloo, Ontario.
