Born in Vienna, Austria, I showed as a young child a great interest for art. In 1975-1980, I pursued my passion for nature in taking special oil painting and drawing courses at McGill University and Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. I attended several master classes with world known artist Armand Tatossian. He, along with Van Gogh and the Canadian “Group of Seven” greatly influenced my style of work.
In 1980, I received international recognition at an exclusive art exhibition in Salzburg, Austria. My work can be found in Germany, Austria and the U.S.A., as well as in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Kelowna and Vancouver.
Bold, creative impressions and brilliant colours are my trademark. My work includes still life, mountains, landscapes and flowers. The medium is almost exclusively oil paints, although water colours and pastels have been used. Each painting is an original.
My paintings are signed E. Wald for Ella Wald (Kargl). A variety of paintings can be seen in the AD LIB private gallery of my daughter Claudia Kargl in Westbank, B.C. Please call tel. 250-718-9875 or 250-768-1404 or email email@example.com to make arrangements for viewing.
