Originally from Estonia, via Sweden, Enda Bardell is a Canadian Artist living and working in Vancouver. Enda has studied at Vancouver Art School (Emily Carr University of Art and Design), and completed studio courses and workshops with prominent Canadian artists such as Toni Onley and Joan Balzar, both of whom she considers her mentors. While maintaining an active art practice, Enda’s inquisitiveness has taken her through stimulating creative careers such costume designer, fabric artist and founder of Enda B. Fashion Limited. Enda has exhibited her work in many group and solo exhibitions. Two of her early abstract paintings were included in the Estonian Art in Exile exhibition at KUMU National Art Museum of Estonia in Tallinn in 2010. Her works have also been selected by the curators for the museum’s permanent historical collection.
What I deeply enjoy is exploring the relationship between patterns and simple shapes with elements of colour to create a composition of dynamic impact.
