BIO Photo credit: Nicole Renee Schneider Photography Ginnie Cappaert is a full time visual artist with a summer studio in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin and a winter studio in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Her surroundings of nature and her travels inspire and influence her oil/mixed media paintings on paper or wood panel. Ginnie has been a full time artist for over twenty years, but it is her intense studying of art history and just ‘experimenting’ that have broadened her personal techniques to art making. She works in oil, cold wax and mixed media layering, adding and removing, many layers to each piece. It is this in-depth process that let’s subtle markings and layers emerge into the finished painting which is an abstracted minimalist version of a landscape. A few of her influences include Richard Diebenkorn, Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, Agnes Martin and many others. Peace. Serenity. Joy. Is what she would like to accomplish in her painting.
