Chela Villate

I was born In Colombia SA and came to Canada 43 years ago. I’m largely a self-taught painter with a passion to express on canvas the beauty and wonders of our beautiful Latin American landscapes as well as Canadian landscapes.
With more than twenty years experience, starting with folk art and drawings, slowly immersing into canvas painting with oil and acrylic mediums and lately venturing off into abstract, palette knife and pouring techniques which I enjoy enormously. I like to see the movement, freedom and colour creation.
Some of my education in this field started in the York Region of Ontario where we used to live.
Newmarket School of Fine Art - Acrylic and Oil Painting techniques for 4 years
Ottawa School of Art - Acrylic, Palette knife techniques and Abstract concepts.
Private lessons with a well known impressionist artist, Irene Abedrapo.
Private lessons with Fabiola Lima, Brazilian acrylic artist.
