Jaynie Coulterman

Painting calm, peacefulness and joy

Jaynie is an Ottawa-based artist who has been drawing and painting since childhood. Primarily self-taught, she has worked in many media, but focuses now on acrylics.  Born and raised in Montreal, she spent much time in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and later in northern Ontario and eastern Ontario cottage country.  This has given her a love of rural scenery and natural landscapes which continues to provide enormous inspiration for her artwork today. 

Jaynie is a member of the Manotick Art Association and Arts Carleton Place and has held various roles in these organizations including president, treasurer, webmaster and show coordinator.  She currently lives and works from her studio in Manotick, Ontario, Canada.

I am drawn to the cycles of nature and the natural beauty of rural and untouched landscapes.  I paint to convey the emotion and the impressions of the subject, rather than the detailed reality.  It is the feeling of calm, peacefulness and joy that I find in nature that I am driven to capture in my paintings. 
I use hard lines and solid shapes, sometimes mixed with blended colours and soft lines, to simplify design, pattern and light.  Many thin layers of paint are used to create smooth, flowing lines and a more impressionistic and abstracted view of a scene.  I use the bold colours of acrylic paint to create a joyous mood and atmosphere.   Ultimately, I want the viewer to experience the “zen” of being immersed in nature as if they are right there with me.
