Artist's Statement:
 "Colour and design brushed by a splash of whimsy have always been touchstones of my work. Primarily a colourist, I prefer the juxtaposition of shape and pigment to that of light and shadow. My paintings use stylized images known for their colourful pigment, sense of playfulness and the use of outlined shapes, together creating a image reminiscent of mosaics or stained glass. I continue to be fascinated by still life composition for the opportunity it provides me to rearrange and manipulate form to achieve my desired result. Since becoming a grandmother I have added phantasmagoric creatures to my choice of subject material. Influences from artists such as O’Keefe, Calder, Kandinsky and Matisse, from Japanese woodblocks and aboriginal art, as well as from travel and other adventures, all combine to create a committed and passsionate use of the watercolour medium to express my enthusiasm for life."
Biography:
 Orillia based watercolour artist, Prudence Smith obtained a BA from the University of Toronto followed by a Diploma in Child Study leadng to the Child Life Department in the Hospital for Sick Children. The serendipity of a summer art course in Haliburton rekindled a childhood attraction to paint and paper. Over the past 25 years her unique style has primarily evolved along a path of self discovery. Smith has exhibited in both solo and group shows in and around central Ontario. Currently she is represented by Norman Felix Gallery, Toronto; Perivale Gallery, Spring Bay, Manitoulin Island; TAG Art Gallery, St Catharines. Her warm and lively paintings are in private and corporate collections in North America, Europe and Asia. In addition to her original work, many of the images are available in card stock. Smith welcomes contact at her in-home sudio in Orillia.
