Mary Ellen Gerster has been a professional artist since 1982, teaching for 30 of those years, displaying her art, both in individual showings and (in concert) with others, including many juried shows. You will find her art in many private collections throughout Canada and the US.

She’s now enjoying painting for pleasure, while showing and selling her works in local galleries and from her Lindsay studio. Light, depth of color and vibrancy in her art is achieved through the layering of transparent colors.  In doing a setup to photograph, to create a watercolour painting her focus is on composition, light, color and subject matter.  People frequently look at her work and comment, “That’s a watercolour painting?”
