Petra Burgmann

Petra began reawakening her artistic side about 10 years ago after a successful career in pet bird and exotic pet medicine. She has received instruction from some of the best Canadian watercolour artists of the present era, and was awarded a signature membership in the Bayview Watercolour Society. She has exhibited her paintings in numerous juried shows and has received several awards for her work. Her paintings are in numerous private collections in Europe, throughout the United States, and across Canada. Her recent move to Wasaga Beach has allowed her to join the vibrant local arts community and become a member of the Blue Mountain Foundation of the Arts. Her preferred subjects are florals, landscape, and architecture.

As well as watercolour painting, Petra is well known for her unique beadwork jewellery created from the beads she has collected from around the world on her travels. Her beadwork allows her to share her love of colour and design in another form. Her jewellery is unique in that no two pieces are alike, and her peyote stitched pieces are formed free-hand, adding structure and colour like a three-dimensional painting.
