In 1986 the artist moved with her husband and two young daughters to a charming, small town outside of Toronto. This was a turning point in her artistic career as the new surroundings gave her the inspiration to begin working in a whimsical and naive style. Each and every painting has been created from the artist’s own imagination thereby evolving into a distinctive piece of work. Colour and instilling emotion are both of prime interest in her work, conveying mood and a sense of vitality and drama.
Throughout the past thirty two years the artist has taken part in numerous art exhibitions, juried and solo shows and has shown in many prominent galleries across Ontario. Memorable highlights from the artists’ career include, displaying her work in the prestigious Arts and Letters Club and the renowned Art Gallery of Ontario’s Art Auction in downtown Toronto.
The work of G. Zealley-Brennan can be found in private collections across Canada, United States, England and Vienna, Austria.
