About the artist
Bertha May Ingle was born April 13, 1878 in Puslinch Township, Ontario. Her development as an artist began in Owen Sound; from about 1901 she spent most of her adult life in or near Toronto, where she died October 20, 1962. She created hundreds of paintings, drawings, and sketches during a long and productive life.
I want to express so much more than just the surface effects,
and they are difficult enough, you know. Can anything be
much more elusive than light and movement? But I love
them well enough I think never to grow tired of trying.
