Neel de Wit-Wibaut is a painter who splits her time between Cal­gary and a remote loca­tion in the Alberta foothills. Devoted to her work, she has been paint­ing faith­fully for decades. Her paint­ings express her deep appre­ci­a­tion of nature and invite the viewer to join her in a reflec­tion on light. Work­ing pri­mar­ily in oils on wood, her sub­jects are inspired moments of illumination—sunlight, moon­light and the col­ors in shad­ows. This ret­ro­spec­tive is a trib­ute to Neel’s remark­able career and an homage to the Alberta foothills where she has lived for more than half her life.
