Featured Artist Kate Henderson

My inspiration comes from natural sources ranging from landscapes to microbiology. I think of nature as a continuous flow of energy represented by shifting shapes and patterns. These shapes are the source of what I call naturally-found abstraction.

Featured Artist Suzanne Yurdin

Be it mountainous, oceanic or atmospheric, I don’t try to convey a specific place and often times don’t title my work for that reason. Instead, I find it more enriching as an artist to connect with my viewer by triggering an emotion, a memory or even a sense of déjà vu.

Featured Artist Peter Seltzer

I love the challenge of combining elements painted from life with those painted from my imagination. Over time and with experience I have developed the ability to see in my mind’s eye how invented forms would behave in the same source of light as those elements painted from life.

Featured Artist Michele Poirier-Mozzone

The paintings are not about anyone in particular, but about capturing a common experience, memory or idea. Most of us have experienced the sound of bubbles rushing past our ears, the broken ribbons of sunlight, bizarre reflections and the weightless, slow dance of movement below the surface.

Featured Artist Karla Reid

Featured Artist Lisa Cunningham

Pastels are so wonderfully tactile and allow me to draw fine details or lay in large blocks of color. Textured patterns or smooth transitions, there really are no limits to what this medium will allow me to create.

Featured Artist Kate Passingham

I’ve long been captivated by pastels and am enthralled by the immediacy and intensity of their colours and their incredible versatility.

Featured Artist Joey Schmidt-Muller

My refusal to follow the path of perfection leaves me room to develop my painting.

Featured Artist Denise Presnell

To add an even more random step to the process, I stand the canvas or paper up vertically and let it drip. The contrast between random accidents and more decisive mark making thrills me.

Featured Artist Jorn Lynae Mork

I try to paint the way a meadowlark sings. Lines become the energetic swirls of wind and a woman may show the strength of a mountain or the resilience of a tree.

What inspired me to draw was never a person; it was the feeling of a lost connection between people.
