Eleanor at Emma Lake Studio

Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon began her career as a professional artist 25 years ago living in Ontario.

Her love of art began very early, and she has always expressed an interest in learning as well as making art. Eleanor studied fine arts at the University of Western Ontario, and continued her studies in art and watercolor at the Ontario College of Art, the Alberta College of Art and through various workshops to broaden her scope. In 1994 she joined the Toronto Watercolor Society . She became a signature member of the TWS and also volunteered as their publicity chairman until December 1999. Eleanor and her family made Calgary their home for fourteen years. She has recently moved to Toronto where she maintains a studio in her home, and continues to paint the people and the landscape that inspires her.

A large part of her learning comes through teaching art.  She has taught the drawing class at the University of Calgary, Certificate Program and teaches “Courageous Watercolor”  and acrylic painting workshops at various venues in Calgary and Alberta. Most recently she has announced her new DVD “Courageous Watercolour” available to order through this site.
