Juliana McDonald

Juliana McDonald, Coming to Light, Triptych, 2011, oil on canvas, 4 x 6 feet


Juliana McDonald is a Canadian landscape artist whose work reflects a deep respect and concern for the natural environment. Her oil paintings and paper works are strongly influenced by many years of canoeing and hiking in the Canadian Shield as well as daily walks in the woods close to her home in Ottawa, Ontario. Subjects range from reflective surfaces of water, to undulating rock forms, to local fields of wildflowers. Her paintings can be found in private, public and corporate collections throughout Canada and the United States.

[Juliana McDonald’s] “ almost ritualistic tearing, patching, and tying together of bits of paper showed an intense desire to stop the threatened extinction of Monarch butterflies and, by extension, the destruction of our own life-world.”
Petra Halkes, PhD, Curator of “Interference”, exhibition catalogue

"Juliana McDonald's "zen pools" from Georgian Bay are superb"
Paul Gessell, The Ottawa Citizen
