Watercolour Paintings by Peter Humeniuk
Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Peter Humeniuk has had a lifelong fascination with
art from the 4 year old who spent all his spare time drawing, through graphics and design atthe Ontario College of Art, studying watercolours and drawing under Carl Schaefer and Fred Hagan, to the professional watercolourist who has been teaching painting and design for the past 20 years.
As a watercolour instructor, Humeniuk's popular workshops are conducted in Thunder Bay Peter Humeniuk
and throughout Northwestern Ontario, the Maritime provinces, the northern states and Florida.
Humeniuk has never given up his passion for art. He has exhibited in many group shows
over the years, including two exhibitions sponsored by the National Ballet at the O'Keefe Centre in Toronto and various art festivals in Canada and the US. His commissions have been numerous and include Thunder Bay's Best Western Nor'Wester Resort Hotel with 2 original watercolours in each of its 90 rooms and more in the lobby. His works reside in collections from coast to coast in North America and as far away as Singapore.
Peter has revolutionized the way watercolours are presented, no longer using mats and glass to frame. His pieces are mounted on hardboard and coated with an acrylic non-glossy film that does not distract viewers from the artwork.
