Lianne Todd was raised on a farm in Delaware Township, ON and formally educated as a biologist (BSc. U. of Waterloo, MSc. U. of Guelph). Her fascination with the natural world is reflected in her art. Though much of her art education has been self-directed, she has taken workshops and classes with Sue Archer, E. J. Thias, Carol Jessen, Don Getz and Tom Lynch. She has been painting watercolours for about sixteen years, and exhibiting them for about thirteen years. This began in St. Louis, Missouri, where she was an award-winning signature member of the St. Louis Watercolor Society, and continues now in Otterville, Oxford County, ON, where she has lived since 2005. In addition to watercolours on various surfaces, she has turned to digital art for further exploration of the fractal universe. She has helped to organize and promote studio tours like Welcome Back to Otterville and the Oxford Studio Tour, as well as taking on the role of president of the Artists of Oxford from March 2012 to December 2014. She has recently become involved with the International Watercolor Society, editing much of their 2014 catalogue and acting as a country branch representative. Her sources of inspiration and means of expression are constantly changing and growing.
