Ineke Harmina Standish Memorial Scholarship (722200300777)


Ineke Harmina Standish Memorial Scholarship
Ineke Harmina Standish (June 27, 1945-September 27, 2001) was born in the Netherlands and immigrated to Canada in 1953. She left high school before completion to have a family and moved to Ottawa with her husband and two children. Ineke completed her high school as a mature student at the High School of Commerce and then attended the University of Ottawa’s Department of Visual Arts and graduated magna cum laude in 1995.  Art was her passion during her life and she worked very well in all media. She was an excellent drawer and painter always having “art” in her vision. She participated in many group shows. Sculpture was her main interest in the last ten years with her final showing being held in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto. Her family has established this scholarship in Ineke’s name to recognize the importance, and tremendous interest ART played in her life. She gained self confidence with her work through support of staff from the Department of Visual Arts and was just at the beginning of her career.
