“I draw inspiration for my jewellery designs from life’s experiences, my travels, and the natural beauty of the world we live in. I particularly enjoy making jewellery that has an element of ‘play’ in the design, like my “champagne” rings with tiny bubbles that ‘lift’ off the surface in a gem-like effect. I use my natural curiosity when creating my designs, exploring ways to use the metals to create a visual sensation, perhaps one of delicacy, softness or fluidity. By using distinct shapes, capturing or reflecting light, adding textures or finding novel ways to blend gemstones and design elements into my pieces, I hope to evoke an emotional response when people see or wear my jewellery.”

“My urban nightscapes show my fascination with the artificial world created by neon and traffic lights. The composition borrows from the randomly scattered light plays I find in the city: the patterns, the juxtapositions, the blending, the subtly and the bright.

“I create art to tell the stories of life. I am the observer. I describe the existence of life. How the fundamental qualities of a person or a thing, can be identify or capture the essential of their characters. I want to show the growth of human spirit, experience of life and all that affect it. To show the effect as a feeling retain as a consequence of the experiences, to show the impression left behind.
To show the vitally in nature. How everything is related to each other. I use different medium to describe my images. Acrylic paint, block printing and scratch board. I want my art have sense of a primitive state, that my thoughts are untouched by artificially. That this is my true expression. That colour, line and texture can be descriptive as the human senses and expression. Vitality, nature and life inspire me. The need to describe the essence of life moves me to create.”

“My landscape paintings are both a study of the physical and metaphysical. The earthly dimension and the unseen dimensions of light are a source for my creativity. I strive to depict the beauty and colour of our natural world infused with the multidimensional reality of light. By immersing myself into the elements of nature and expressing my experience in an abstracted expression of the landscape, I practice capturing the feeling of the natural world. Through the inspiration of nature I witness the deconstruction of form into the formless and back into form again; deconstructing trees, hills and sky into colour, lines, form and space.”

“I have been practicing on-site paintings (en plein air) for over twenty years, struggling with post modern approaches to the development of abstract spaces based on contemporary philosophy. I return to the landscape for both renewal and insight, finding new and subtle connections between the act of seeing and my perception of the world. While maintaining traditional perspective, these paintings struggle to include many of the ideas I utilize in my larger abstract work.”

“I have been drawn to decay and the transitory nature of the world around us. Buildings and communities age and disappear and are confined to stories of days past. I use acrylic paint and routed wood to capture the images of the outports of Newfoundland and Labrador and the barns of Ontario. These solid structures become fragile as they are subjected to the elements of neglect, the environment and despair. My paintings hold onto the world that is lost or disappearing – sometimes in the blink of an eye.”

“I view my watercolours and drawings as a means of communicating to my audience the beauty and fragility of the world around us, and what is at stake if we do not assume stewardship of our environment. My passion for the outdoors, hiking, and canoeing is reflected in my landscapes, but I also seek to capture the grace of a child, a bird, or a single flower in finely rendered portraits or closeups.
The versatility and portability of both watercolour and graphite are ideal for my wide range of subjects. I can easily pack my paints, brushes and pencils in my backpack, and develop quick or detailed sketches on location, depending on the timeline. Back in my studio, I will often do a fully rendered drawing of a subject before I do a painting, which helps me work through the values, light patterns and composition of an image.”

“My work is driven by ideas around ecology, continuity and regeneration. I am intrigued by the ways in which recollections are organized into what we understand as history, and I am interested in deciphering the roles that symbol and language play in coding memory. In my multi-media installation practice, found objects and photographs, natural matter and industrial discards are often reclaimed and integrated into the pieces to honour cycles of life. Layering, scraping, carving and burning are part of my process of exploring - and preserving - memory. My recent focus is an archival-oriented work that examines the essence of letters and a new series of encaustic paintings that explore our relationship to the land.”

“Emotional memories are not always immediately recognizable as having a concrete birthplace. This concept was explored by photographing through an unfocused lens. Rather than dictating what is to be the perceived truth, blurred images create a doorway that allows the viewer to follow a personal narrative into each photograph. Our memory bank acts as a container in which we capture poignant moments that either consciously or not, take root and follow us through time. The subject matter my work is familiar to many, but the accompanying sensory memories and the location the viewer places them in, are unique to the individual.”

“If asked to describe my style I would have to settle on ‘abstract realism’, leaving enough unsaid to entice the viewer to complete my vision. My metal work is composed of re-cycled and organic materials for both the home and garden. Working primarily in oils, my paintings combine texture and form to reveal the shifting moods of forest, land, water and sky.”

“I have been working in my new studio influenced by the surrounding cedars and maples, fields and wetlands. Through a series of abstract landscapes and tree images, I continue to examine our ‘sense of place’, and use the landscape as a metaphor for one’s ‘journey’ through life. These mixed media works are on stretched canvas or board using photo transfer and collage, acrylic, graphite, pastel, and gold leaf.”

“I’m looking to translate the moment and the search for quality of sound in musical performance, to the gesture and energy of something visible. The nerve and vibration of the line in drawing has preoccupied and mystified me for many years. I’ve begun after a long predominance of drawing to try to synthesize the rich limitation of line with some form and colour, in as candid a fashion as I’m able, expanding that moment before the headlong tedious force of habit pulls me into a predictable and familiar place, to see what happens if I simply don’t. It seems if there can be some remnant of the energy that went into the making, it will, to some degree, be successful.”

“My paintings are an emotional response to what I see in the natural landscape that surrounds my home and studio. Somewhat ethereal in quality, Images of landscapes and water are painted from memory mostly with oil as it lends itself to being scraped and scratched, cutting into the paint to reveal the colours beneath. These are my visual diaries celebrating the beauty and peace found in nature.”

“I am a multimedia artist inspired by the rural landscape and the numerous gardens surrounding my studio. Constantly exploring new techniques in a variety of media, including graphite, oil/oil stick, mosaic, encaustic, gouache and gelatin plate monoprints, the outcome varies greatly depending on the medium used. My illustrative background can be seen in my colourful and whimsical gouache paintings.”

“When making a piece of jewellery, my main concerns are quality, integrity and flow. I love clean lines, rich textures and contrast. I use sterling silver, gold, copper, brass and bronze and often mix different metals in one piece. I am inspired by everything around me. Shapes, colours, connections and the many celebrations or tribulations of life that I am honoured to be asked to help commemorate with my work.”

“My goal is to capture the landscape and express my feelings and emotions through oil painting. By employing a bold use of colour to highlight and heighten the visual impact of each painting – my loose, rapidly executed brushstrokes capture moment-by-moment impressions on the canvas. The act of painting becomes an extension of myself allowing me to concentrate on the content with authority and directness. It is both a pleasure as well as a necessity to me to able to extract from my daily life significant meanings which are translatable into paint.“

“My objective as a potter is to find the balance between form, function and colour. I work within the discipline of cone 10 reduction fired porcelain as well as in the Raku process. The high fire reduction allows for richness in colour and depth in the glaze surface. The making of the objects requires precisioned discipline which I find meditative. The raku firing process is fast and immediate and has a playful aspect which I believe comes alive in the work.”

“Over the 40 years that I have worked with clay, my interests and inspiration has come from a variety of sources. Architecture, design, and the landscape have been constant references in my work. The process of making an object in clay also plays an important role in my work. I try not to disguise the object’s creation but leave enough visual information for the viewer to reconstruct its making. The making and structure become important aspects of the esthetic of the object. Recently I have been exploring surfaces, which are inspired by the rocks and lichen of the Canadian Shield.”
