Liene Haruta (b. 1974)
My interest in how nature and humanity are intrinsically linked motivates me to explore how we are spiritually connected to our environment, and the nature that surrounds us.
My current theme and body of work includes interpreting the human form in both a classical and modern sense.
Part of my journey in developing this theme has come from having studied under Jon Tobin. In endeavouring to emulate the techniques of the old masters in figurative and landscape themes, I hope to carry their discipline of learning into our day in a relevant way. My aim is to continually grow in my skills and abilities.
My studio is in Mildmay, Ontario.
