Artist Biography

Ulla Djelweh is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist and a graduate of the Ontario Collage of Art. In recent years Digital Photography become her medium of choice. A passion for travel, foreign cultures and a keen interest in nature, design and architecture often plants the seed for a visual story. A natural or man-made environment supplies an abundance of subjects. Colours, shapes and lines, created by an ever-changing light source and its reflections, often become the source for a fresh idea. At times social and political issues are addressed.

Ulla Djelweh has consistently exhibited and sold her work since 1985. Her paintings and limited-edition photographs are held in private and corporate collections throughout Canada, USA and Europe.

Artist Statement

Ulla finds beauty in the mundane and is inspired by the beauty of the natural and man-made environment, its landscapes and people. There is this special moment, a splash of colour, a ray of light, a fleeting shadow that is magical and triggers the urge to capture, to share with empathy and gratitude. Accidents become an opportunity to re-think, re-invent a work in progress. A gained opportunity!

Strongly believing in the therapeutic value of art, children are fun to engage with. Sharing the magic of a camera might become a very special moment when visiting the rural places of the world.
