Denise Antaya

Kingsville, ON
Denise is an award-winning plein air landscape painter and, most recently, a finalist in Makeful TV’s “Landscape Artist of the Year Canada” television series. After a 31-year career in advertising, Denise decided to pursue her lifelong passion of painting landscapes and studied at Toronto’s Academy of Realist Art for three years. 

“A plein air painter has to capture the essence of place with the ever changing light, subtleties of colour, shape and shadows, only keeping what is necessary to tell the story. If I can make the audience feel the magic, then this journey is all worthwhile.”
