Eva Neumaier

Eva Neumaier

In my water colours I try to capture the fluidity and the unknown of existence. The lay of the land is for me a potent symbol expressing this mystery.


Eva Neumaier, born in Munich, Germany, was drawn to painting from early childhood on. During her youth she took advantage of the rich cultural offerings in Munich, seeing the original works of Picasso, Chagall, Nolde, Kandinsky to name only a few. After finishing high school she worked for some time in a workshop creating mosaics and designing stained glass windows for churches. This was also a period of creative painting. Entering an academic field of studies (anthropology and Indian and Tibetan Studies) her creative drive drifted in the background. A demanding academic career became the centre of her life. In 1981 the University of Calgary offered her a professorship in Buddhist Studies resulting in immigrating to Canada. Only after her retirement she took up painting again.

North American artists, among them Karin Richter and Ron Ranson taught her the basics of water colour. During several years in Germany she took courses at the Volkshochschule Muenchen and the Kunstakademie Bad Reichenhall under the guidance of various European artists. Her present work is mainly influenced by Ekkehard Hofmann, Joseph Biersack and Gerhard Hillmayr.

Eva is a member of the Calgary Community Painters Society, Calgary Artists Society and the Parkdale Arts Club. Some of her paintings are in private collections in Canada and Germany.
