Raw beauty of
Lorenda Neufeld Harder is a Canadian artist who works in a style that can be described as Natural Expressionism. Themes from nature inspire dynamic, energetic lines and surprising colour contrasts as the artist responds to the inner energy of her subject through paintings, drawings, and hand-pulled prints.
As a child, Lorenda's creative talent was recognized and encouraged. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at 22, she received two art awards, exhibited in a two-person art show, and began selling work and receiving commissions. At 24, she received a Bachelor of Education degree and poured herself into teaching, hardly letting up until 2015, when she was able to follow her passion to develop and grow as a visual artist. Since then, she has held three juried private solo exhibits and sold dozens of original pieces of art throughout Niagara and as far afield as California and Australia.
Lorenda is settled with her husband in the Niagara Region, near her adult children.
Her present or recent art memberships include the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA), Christians In the Visual Arts (CIVA), the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA), and Canadian Artists Representation Ontario (CARFAC).
