About Stanza Widen

Although I was born in South Africa and was privileged enough to travel all over the world, I flew away from the land of my birth and the life I had when I met and fell completely in love with a gentle Canadian who wrote me poems and asked me to marry him, promising to take me to 'Hear the Aurora sing and the wolves howl in concert’. Now I live in beautiful British Columbia, a place of towering snow-capped mountains, glacier-fed aquamarine rivers and enormous forests teeming with incredible wildlife. I have stood on a glacier, caught jumping salmon in enormous rivers and walked through fields carpeted with wildflowers. One crystal clear night I lay in the field and watched shooting stars streaking above while learning about the unfamiliar constellations, trying to turn my head upside down so I could see Orion looking the way it did in the Southern Hemisphere.

I paint because I cannot do otherwise. I paint because if I don’t I become unhappy and sad. Most of all, I paint best the things that filled and fill me with joy and excitement, like the ocean and waves which I no longer can see nor hear now. During the long winter months I painted butterflies because they were symbols of what it felt like to fly away to freedom. For the past few years I've been painting artworks so that I can finally find full closure of the things that happened in my past.

And all the while, I continue trying to achieve what Matisse wrote, “I continue painting until the hand sings”.

I have been very privileged to have my work featured on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_emb... by Pemero, an amazing artist whose work can be seen here http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/petko-pemaro.... For this honour Petko Pemero, thank you!!
