Michael Foers


Michael spent many of his formative years working in Canada's north as a trapper, prospector, and lumberjack. Always sketching in his spare time, he picked up a paintbrush one rainy day and discovered a passion that would change the rest of his life. He developed his own style, conscious that he should behold a child's spontaneity and simplicity. His work, inspired by nature and the effects of light on organic forms, resides in that realm between realism and the abstract. The bold use of colour highlights a sense of depth in his paintings and distinguishes his work from that of other artists.

LAURIE SMITH


Laurie uses the word ἁπλότης (haplotés), meaning "singleness or simplicity" in Greek, to describe her approach to her watercolour, acrylic and ceramic works. Her motto from Antoine de Saint-Exupery, "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away" is applied not only to her own artistic process, but to her teaching methodologies as well. From her early years in commercial art and teaching art, to a combined career in illustration and graphic design, Laurie returned to her first love in 2010 with a series of forty plus large scale mixed media works (spanning a four-year period) commissioned for commercial installation across the country. She now works from a rented studio space at the Farmhouse Pottery Studio in Hockley where she enjoys working in ceramic, watercolour and acrylic.

John David Anderson


“Painting is pretty much like breathing for me now. I started at a young age, copying the works of Glen Loates and Andrew Wyeth and it just grew from there with the increased exposure to more and more possibilities with paint. Northern and southern European impressionists along with some of the French and Dutch painters as well as North American impressionists all have left their mark on me. The quality of light in anything I see becomes the focus of my thoughts when a painting begins. Light has an emotional statement to make as it touches things, passes by them, floods over them...it creates a colour field that allows me to enter in. Once in the the space I begin an expression of the space and the affect it has on me. Colour relationships are the voice of that illuminated space that I try to speak to with my brush. It's always exciting.”
