Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Candida Girling studied art at York University, Edinburgh University and the Edinburgh College of Art. She later studied industrial design at the Ontario College of Art and at the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture in Copenhagen. After a brief foray into the more practical applications of design, she returned to painting, printmaking and sculpture in the late 1980s. She has since been teaching art and exhibiting her work extensively. In her studio, she articulates her process, including her focus on colour and her exploration of gender roles and relationships.
