"Lorenda seems to capture a sense of the subject's spiritual essence."
Lorenda Neufeld Harder is a mature emerging Canadian artist who works in a style that could be described as Natural Expressionism. She works with themes from nature using dynamic, energetic lines and surprising colour contrasts, painting, drawing and printmaking.
She graduated from the University of Manitoba with her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees in the 1980s, has lived on the prairies, the west coast and briefly in a castle just south of Scotland. She is now permanently rooted in Niagara with her husband and nearby their three adult children.
"If I manage to reflect honest truths through the raw beauty of creation or express nature to others in a fresh or healing way, then I am satisfied."
