Fran Roelands-Acrylics Artist  

“Modern, Meaningful and Uplifting”

I've been creating for as long as I can remember and have been mentored by many outstanding professional artists at the 1000 Islands school for the Arts in Brockville ON.

As an experienced award winning artist, I feel continually inspired and compelled to paint. I try to capture interesting scenes that show magnificent light and glorious colour. I'm always looking to create that unexpected piece of art with great design, thoughtful emotion and modern freedom of expression.

I’ve been fortunate to achieve much success while showing and selling my work at numerous exhibitions, shows and sales.
The artistic process continues to drive my creative spirit in unimaginable directions!

Recently, I was thrilled to earn Best in Show at the Paint Ontario Art competition in Grand Bend, ON for my acrylic painting “Daybreak".

Authentically Canadian, my work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout Ontario as well as in many countries around the globe as gifts from Canada.

My original paintings and geclee prints are sold at Creamery Road Gallery located at 34607 Creamery Rd., Ailsa Craig ON.

I offer painting workshops and design talks at my home gallery. The focus is on fun and learning and creating a wonderful piece of Art!

"Oblivious Optimism"

As I painted a resident Robin sitting on our overgrown Curly Willow, I couldn't help but notice that throughout these critical days of Covid 19, she scurried around making her nest and carried on as usual. In this vivid daydream, the robin is crystal clear amid the doom and gloom of our time.
