Shernya has had a passion for art since she was a young girl growing up in Quebec.
It was and continues to be a perfect outlet to express her love of nature, from flowers and birds, to her deep connection with horses. She was born in Montreal and currently lives in the inspiring Canadian countryside of Hudson, Quebec. Shernya Vininsky is a well-known artist. Her unique technique of acrylic on tissue paper with watercolour accents results in impressive pieces with a soft palette and vibrant colours. Her work with mixed media is intriguing as striking images draw in the viewer, while subtle imagery spins an intricate tale.
Shernya’s paintings are in many private collections across Canada, in the U.S.A. and Europe. Her works are on exhibit at Tilting at Windmills Gallery in Manchester, Vermont and La Palette Gallery in Beaconsfield, Quebec. Her talents also extend to stained glass.
Contact the galleries to purchase paintings, or contact Shernya directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for commissions, courses and any inquiries.
I do the work I do to show my world of thoughts and feelings. The fluid colours I work with move and mingle to form beautiful shapes of nature that appear and live comfortably together. This is my magical world of two dimension where all my goals and aspirations are met.
I often put off making decisions as long as possible having faith in the process. Once I see a glimmer of something, my creative juices take hold usually recognizing my current theme, I used to see flowers in all my work but now I see horses as well. I will then use all that I have at hand to make it appear as it always was there. I often use acrylic as a base with many layers of colour and texture. Slowly the layers translate in an integrated whole. I then use watercolour techniques to clarify my vision, I can change and rearrange watercolour on acrylic making decisions effortless.
In my current work I am combining two visions, where horses can be composed of flower shapes and flower shapes into horses. This combination has grown out of my prior work when they lived in separate paintings. My flowery world definitely does in reality combine the two passions of horses and flowers. It seems natural to me to attempt to see both emerge as one in my work and a challenge to explore the vast possibilities with my tools, materials and imagination. Horses and their riders have emerged on my canvases lately, which I am having a ball exploring.
