J. Wheeler is a Canadian artist whose work explores fluid movement in landscape. The artist holds a diploma in Design Arts from Seneca College in Toronto, Ontario. She studied conceptual art at Byam Shaw School of Art in London, UK and life drawing at Lorenzo d’Medici School of Art in Florence, Italy.
Wheeler’s working travels as a young adult took her to Japan, Saudi Arabia, Europe, the UK and across Canada. While working and living in these rich and diverse cultures, Wheeler took every opportunity to learn more about her field. In Japan, while working as a young designer and lecturer she was able to study calligraphy with professional calligraphists. In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia she exhibited a body of work titled “Impressions of the Middle East”, painted during her year-long stay. Three of those pieces won an I.A.C. award in New York the following year. Extensive time in the UK and Europe gave the artist access to great art galleries and museums, driving her need to find her own voice for her work.
The artist works in her studio in the century farm she and her husband call home. The farmhouse provides the quiet environment the artist needs to focus on her work. Wheeler has exhibited in many cities around the world, including New York, Toronto, Jeddah, Tokyo and Nashville.
