Rediscover Canadian Landscape Art

Our work is “vibrant in nature”.

Come with us on a journey where the landscapes of Canada are explored with vibrance. Our motto is to “never stop exploring.” We enjoy painting the stories of mountains, oceans and valleys. Let’s begin with the ancient forests on the west coast of British Columbia and travel up through the upper elevations of Canada’s national parks. From the Okanagan to Banff, and Jasper we will discover old trails and create new ones. All the while, observing a flow of brushwork that is abundant, purposeful in energy and movement. Bliss itself!

Explore Canada

Where would we be without wise sherpas who coach and push us beyond our wildest dreams. Across the sea of space, stars and other suns we want to explore it all and occasionally make history with colourful art. Our work is “boldly beautiful” and that is the emotion on our brush!

Artist Bio

Tina Monod is an emerging artist and a landscape painter. She is inspired by valleys and oceans, lakes and mountains in Canada. Her Canadian landscapes are vibrant in nature. Her style is both impressionistic and expressionistic in how she captures light and layers with colour. She is a member of Art in Canada, Artists in Canada, the Artist’s Network, East Central Ontario Art Association, Federation of Canadian Artists, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Oshawa Art Association, Pineridge Arts Council, the Society of Canadian Artists, Station Gallery and The Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery.

Born in Kelowna, British Columbia Tina Monod chose to pursue her art education in Victoria with a visual arts degree. Monod is a graduate from the University of Victoria with a B.F.A. Honours. She also attended the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA founded by Dale Chihuly. Tina began her career as a freelance animator, graphic illustrator, digital marketer and web graphic designer. Creativity and connecting with the outdoors is her passion. She enjoys photographing nature on her walks and these photos become her paintings. Naturally she spends equal time in the digital world of advertising and design.

Painting a Monod Family Tradition

Painting is a family tradition for Monod with a mother was a photographer, bronze artist and marble sculptor. Her father was a jazz musician. Her grandfather Jack A. Monod was an architect, watercolorist and museum curator in Barcelona. He even has some pieces in the archives of the Geneva Museum of Art and History. Like Jack, Tina loves being outside and painting “en plein air” with a very similar eye for capturing the same outdoor scenes and locations. Even an identical style of sketching shows through, which is interesting in that the two never met. Some traits are uniquely inherited or must be in the DNA. All of this is a pleasant surprise and connection, which makes her smile often… while she paints her landscapes.

Acrylic Paintings

A complete portfolio of artwork by Canadian artist and designer Tina Monod with recent art from the mountains of Canada’s national parks. “Mapping the Great Divide” is a growing collection of paintings which depict a journey through Mount Revelstoke National Park, Golden, Field and Yoho National Park in British Columbia. This series will also include Banff National Park.

Tina has also painted a series of unique nocturne landscape paintings called “Wilderness Expressions.” A Canadian landscape series all about the beauty of the night sky with infinite stars to wish upon. Each painting is created on a black gessoed gallery wood panel with a nice depth and polished black edge. These explorations are about her adventures on the west coast, working her way through the Okanagan, Banff and Jasper, Alberta.
