Biography:
 Ingalora Dwyer Photographer, Creater, Ingalora studied Photography in her native country Austria and Canada than continued with classes in Painting, Printmaking and Ceramic in Toronto, Vancouver and San Miguel de Allende.She now makes San Miguel de Allende, México her home. "I started my artistic career when I was 3 years old. One day when my Artist/Architect grandfather was napping and letting his painting of a female nude dry, I decided to change the colour of the painting to bright green. My grandfather, recognising my talents bought me my first set of water-colours that I used immediately to modify his drawings for the design of a new house. My ideas were not very well received and that is why I never pursued a career in architecture. For my 6th Birthday I received my very own camera, a Baby Brownie and I have not stopped taking photos since. I spent most of my teenage and all of my adult years in and around Jazz clubs and Jazz concerts. One of Jazz greatest to make a strong impression on me was John Coltrane and even now the tenor saxophone is my favourite instrument. I tried to learn to play the tenor sax, but my dog would not stop howling every time I practised. So, I decided to stick to the Visual Arts. I am a free spirit by heart but most of my life thought I needed to fit into certain situations (family, work, marriage and society in general) that I created for myself. I am learning to live in the NOW and most of the time I am successful. The focus in my work is letting my creative spirit be free and spontaneous. My work represents my feelings I had at the time I created it. I leave it up to the viewer to find his own feelings and experiences he provokes within himself by viewing my creations. The colours, textures and materials I am using and the music I am listening to are a very important factor on how I feel when I am creating. Right now I am working with Encaustic and am experimenting with all the possibilities to combine the process with my photographic work. Ingalora's work is represented in private collections in Austria, Canada, USA, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Finland, England, Switzerland, Holland, Bermuda, Kenya, Australia and New Zealand

If you feel the urge to splash paint without restraint but need a spark of inspiration, contact Ingalora Dwyer and prepare for an unforgettable incredible journey into a world of creativity. Those comfortable ruts of familiarity, so easy to carve into our lives, happened to me. I was stifled. I had no new ideas! I found Ingalora's ad and signed up for the 4 day creativity workshop. Immediately I knew I was in the right place. There was an endless variety of materials to work with, continuous sources of inspiration and all this in the midst of stimulating collective group energy. This was just what I needed. Once again I began to create. I painted cards to hand out to friends with my name and phone number and made a decorative box to keep them in, I painted to music and wrote poetic lines across the painting. We did group paintings splashed with color and memories. .I did what I have NEVER done; created a stunning hat! In this safe space I took risks. With Ingalora's gentle urging I used bright bold colors instead of my usual safe subtle shades. The classes are always limited to 6 so each participant receives individual attention. I found the energy from our group of 6 participants was a stimulant enhancing the development of each person's individual growth. A really special treat happens at lunch time. Ingalora, who also used to give classes in gourmet cooking, served us wonderful food. Marjorie Schroeder, San Miguel de Allende, Gto. México
