I paint because I have no choice. I feel driven by a need to explore beauty and nature, taking paths that have no defined end. I feel like I am on an adventure of the mind, opening myself to an unknown world.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Since childhood, Christl Niemuller has always been drawn to create art. During her working years this took the form of many different media including pottery, needlework, stained glass, weaving and painting in night school courses. Upon her retirement in 1990, she immersed herself in watercolour.
Christl is a self- taught artist but has attended many workshops including the Haliburton School of Fine Art, Hudson River Valley Art and the Scottsdale Artists School.
She became a signature member of the Toronto Watercolour Society in 1997 and was show chair for two years. Although Christl now works in a variety of media, including, oils, acrylic, encaustic and mixed media, she remains drawn to the vibrancy and versatility of watercolour.
Christl and her family moved to Goodwood in 1979 but she didn't join the Uxbridge Studio Tour until 1998. "It is an exciting time to open up the doors of my home and invite in strangers to view my work. So much of who I am is poured into my paintings and it is never easy for me to share that with others". Having said that, Christl is very grateful to live in a community like Uxbridge that is such a strong supporter of the Arts.
Christl one of the original members of the Uxbridge Artist Collective that has been on tour since 2009, showcasing our work in local galleries in Whitby, Sunderland and Toronto.
