Stanza's Flowers & Butterflies Alphabet
As part of a series of artworks, Stanza painted an ink and watercolour illustration of the letter A in which the name of the flower and the butterfly began with A; the result was beautiful and inspiring. This led to the letter B and a year later the alphabet was complete. Most of the original artworks were sold, but in 2016 she worked with her husband to turn the stunning series into a book featuring the entire alphabet. It is a colourful book of beautiful artworks for everyone.
Stanza Widen was born in South Africa and studied for a BFA at Rhodes University. She now lives in Northwestern British Columbia, Canada. Although being a landscape painter using pastel was a lifelong love, she now explores other media in an effort to express her thoughts and emotions. This has been a voyage of discovery where she has found new dimensions she was only able to dream of in the past. She was commissioned by the Australian Artist's Palette Magazine to feature her artwork and do a tutorial for the readers which was published in Issue 74 in 2009. Her paintings and mixed-media collage art have been purchased by collectors around the world. Stanza's artworks have been displayed in art galleries in both South Africa and Canada. In 2017 she and her husband opened an art gallery and studio business bringing a lifelong dream to reality.
