Canadian born artist Tennille Rose Will has been a professional artist for nearly 20 years. Yearning to see the world from a young age she traversed the globe. Travelling from Europe to Australia, she met new collectors and gained material for her persistently inspired works. After several years of successful exhibitions and private sales abroad, Tennille returned to Canada. She currently resides in Toronto, where she is the owner of Rose Will Gallery + Studio previously in the heart of the burgeoning Dundas West neighbourhood. Since the pandemic she has moved her work to this site and the gallery to rosewillgalllery.com where you can see the works of other local emerging artists.
Her work is an array of emotive figures expressed through vivid colour and fluid lines. Producing art that is based upon her own experiences, Tennille Rose Will is intriguing, creating both excitement and serenity. Her belief is that we are influenced by inanimate surroundings. She hopes her work will both contribute to, and influence, a more introspective society.
Her artwork comes to life in an amalgamation of styles. The bright fauvist palette of Matisse and Derain, the patterning and sensuality of Klimt and the elongated shapes of Modigliani are all evident. All these different influences come together in what the artist simply calls “Tennilleism”.
