Tara Bryan (Visual Artist) – “Change and the observations of its subtleties is the essence of my work.”

March 10
Sheilagh O’Leary (Art Photographer) – “The human element is first and foremost. It’s about intimacy with the subject.”
Diana Dabinett (Visual Artist) - “In vibrant colour, with translucent media, I attempt to capture the surface details of this unique and harsh place on the edge of Canada while also expressing the strange duality of its formidable strength and intense fragility
March 17
Julia Pickard (Visual Artist) - “Reflected colour, light, movement, and mood are what I try to convey in my paintings.”
Marilyn Macdonald (Quilter) – “I am so passionate about quilting because it allows me to combine a love of textiles with a desire to create comfortable, pleasing objects.”

Jim Maunder (Visual Artist) - “My work involves issues of human identity, often as it relates to our relationship with our ecosystem.”
Susan Furneaux (Textile Artist) - “The time to gather dye material, apply layers of dye and hand stitch each piece allows for thorough contemplation of the design and idea to be expressed”.

Howdy Craig,

Good thing you started this here discusion. Andrea Hickey told me about it and was loving it. I love it too. Maybe you could start one for Montreal cause right now it seems there is much more debate there than there is here.

I have a starter "blog" that behave more like a site. I intend to post more current ideas on it soon but now it's a photo factory.
