The Artists of Muskoka

Krysia Bower

Krysia Bower is a multi-faceted artist who creates large woodblock prints and transforms antique Muskoka cottage windows into works of art. Her methods are unusual and the results are striking. She uses a router to carve out designs on large sheets of plywood, applies inks and acrylics to the surface and pulls off prints in brilliant colours. Her technique of applying all the colours at once, before printing , results in vibrant, one-of-a-kind works of art.

Beginning with windows and French doors salvaged from cottage renovation projects, Krysia applies cut mirrors and coloured glass beads to panes of glass to form stylized flowers that come alive with the interplay if reflected light. These confections, suitable for both indoor and outdoor areas, delight the eyes as you pass them by. As old, tradition cottages continue to be modernized or torn down, Krysia salvages the original windows and doors and gives them new life for people to enjoy for many years to come.
