Evoke Memories + Spark Wanderlust
Welcome! I'm Esther Moorehead, the painter behind Glendale Studio. My work is fueled by passion for adventure, exploration, and travel. I paint iconic landmarks and landscapes to incite curiosity to explore unknowns, create wonderment, and encourage travel as a way to look outside of ourselves. My vibrant color palettes echo the heightened visual awareness of dreams and memories. I draw inspiration from first-hand experiences and a love for connecting people to memories of extraordinary places. My philosophy of making art is underpinned by a desire to create things that reflect my beautiful Maker. I've travelled all over North America and the Caribbean, the UK, Europe, and Africa, and have many more destinations on my to-go list!
I currently work primarily in watercolor on paper and acrylic on canvas, but my portfolio also includes work in oils, wall murals, and theater set design. My paintings reside in private collections all over Canada, the USA, and the UK.
