Bijou Heaven Studio

Specialty - Artisan crafted jewellery designs

Bijou Heaven Studio

Artist: Bonnie Stevenson
My love of rocks and stones came first. Then, I wanted to be able to make beautiful jewellery so I could showcase the beauty that comes from nature; this is how Bijou Heaven came about. Finally, when I knew there was more to the crystals and they "sang" to me, I devised a method through the Schumann resonance to link numbers to colours, vibrations to crystals and create a piece of jewellery that resonates with you to help guide and direct Universal Source. Each piece of jewellery is lovingly handcrafted and imbued with just the right kind of energy! Bijou Heaven's creative jewellery - Rocks! High vibrational crystals will also be available.

Philip Roy was born and raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. He studied music and history before choosing a career in writing. His love for the ocean, enjoyment of travelling, and fascination for submarines has led to the creation of the Submarine Outlaw series. He has also published two works of historical fiction, Blood Brothers in Louisbourg and Me & Mr. Bell (Cape Breton University Press).

Me & Mr. Bell, (nominated for four major awards including the Canadian Library Association's Book of the Year for Children), is about a ten-year-old boy struggling with dyslexia who befriends Alexander Graham Bell and Helen Keller in 1908 (Cape Breton University Press). Philip has also written 27 stories in the Happy the Pocket Mouse picture book series thus far. The first two published books in the series, Mouse Tales and Jellybean Mouse, respectively, will be followed by Mouse Pet in September 2015.

Dragonfly Stained Glass

Specialty - Stained Glass for home and business

Dragonfly Stained Glass

Artist: Brenda Henry
I am an emerging stained glass artist, having started my studies in 2013 in Windsor and I continue to studyin Sarnia. My work emphasizes the brilliance and beauty of glass - allowing the richness of colour, light and movement to come to life.

Glass has always held a fascination for me but it was my journey to reclaim my identity after multiple traumas that led to the discovery of this beautiful medium and the artist within.

What began as a form of self therapy is truly a life long love and I hope the joy I feel in the creation of each piece will come through to those who view my art and that something in a particular piece will speak to or touch the viewer on a personal level.

Brenda welcomes custom glass art commissions and is happy to work with themes and colours reflective of your own desires.

Four Rod Studio

Specialty - Recycled metal art

Four Rod Studio

Artist: Leo VanEerd
I am a retired farmer living on "Four Rod Road" near Dealtown. I've taken my welding skills from working with farm equipment and tools to the level of creative metal sculptures. I started creating metal art items in 1994 when I made two candle holders for my daughter's 18th birthday. Soon her friends wanted one and requested different varieties of holders. Sport figures became very popular, such as baseball players, hockey players, soccer players etc. Soon I branched out into garden sculptures made from garden tools, shovels, rakes, nuts and bolts. I took old discs, cultivators and other metal machinery parts to create animals such as fish, ducks, geese, insects and specialty orders of birds and other creatures. Some are painted while others are left with the rustic look. I have also created a two-horse drawn plow from different tools and machinery parts which stands in front of my studio: The Four Rod Studio. My main goal is to create a sculpture with the tools in the original state. Now my sculptures can be found from coast to coast in Canada, in the U.S. and Europe. I try to constantly come up with new ideas for my metal sculputres. As I've often said: "One thing leads to another".

Glass Beyond Class

Specialty - Stained glass creations

Glass Beyond Class

Artist: Margaret Anne McKichan
Margaret Anne, a retired teacher, works out of her "home" studio in Corunna. For local sales she focuses on sun catchers, small window panels, and more recently 3-D creations on driftwood. She is proud to have been commissioned to create some full size memorial windows for a couple of local churches and was particularly pleased to create some musical pieces, which is one of her other "passions" in life. Stained glass is "somewhat like quilting, only with sharper and hotter media". She considers herself fortunate to have made items for friends in Arizona, which is her winter "hangout". One of those pieces was an insert for a cupboard door. You can hide a lot behind a pretty stained glass picture, like this "lighthouse" piece.

Henry vanKlinken

Specialty - Pictures to Paintings

Henry vanKlinken
Henry vanKlinken is a self-taught naturalist/realist artist. He was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario where he shared a room with an older brother who loved to paint. The bedroom always smelled of oil paint and thinners, there was always a canvas on an easel or desk, and there was always a painting in process. As the years passed, the older brother moved out and Henry moved on in secondary school to pursue architecture. In his second year of college, still perusing architecture, Henry signed up for a night school class in watercolor painting to improve his architectural rendering skills. By the end of the second class he quit because the instructor thought he "used too much paint".

Henry moved to Southwestern Ontario in 1981 where he and his wife raised a family of four boys. Painting was very much a part of relaxation and down time. His paintings are predominantly naturalistic and representational of day to day life where his inspiration comes from.

Henry experimented with various media and eventually settled into painting with oils and watercolours. He believes some of his later watercolours would meet the instructor's approval in terms of less paint. Some of his oils however require significant drying time.

Photography by Phos3

Specialty - Fine art photography

Photography by Phos3

Artist: Kathryn Parent and David Paddick
Kathryn Parent and Dave Paddick are a husband and wife team, life partners and soul mates. Their home base is in Chatham, Ontario, Canada. They are known Internationally and have sold their photos globally, won a plethora of photo contest and published in national magazines, Calendars and Papers. When not on a shoot you will often find them storm chasing and storm spotting for EC (Environment Canada) or NWS (National Weather Service) in the States or driving down country roads photographing abandon houses and whatever else catches their eyes along the way. Their extreme weather photography is admired in the weather community and in 2017 by special request, they participated in the international NWS/EC Lighting Validation Research Project for the new GOES 16 Satellite, Lightning Mapper Program.

Phos3 - Where did this name come from? Well after a great deal of thought it was decided that they wanted something unique without using their names as many photographers do. Yet when they want to take credit of a photo they can put their individual names on it.
Phos - Is Greek for light. Phos is pronounced Foss
3 Superscript - is multi-dimensional - It is perfect balance, aesthetics, tripod, rule of thirds, a funnel for energy, 3 dimensions, the 3 elements, earth, wind and fire, black/white and colour, 3 components of water H2O, and Light - Vision - Emotion
Speaking of Light - Vision - Emotion, here is a brief description of how these 3 tag words came to be. There must be light in order to see. Photography is about capturing light. A Photograph cannot be taken without light. The vision is the composition of the frame. It's the artist's eye and how we perceive what we are seeing. And last but not least, Emotion - "hopefully if we have done our job right, using light to capture the vision that we see, it will stimulate some sort of an emotion within you, letting you feel the story."
"We Shoot To Thrill"
This deep thought process flows into their way of how they photograph their subjects, whether its weather, nature, landscapes special events or people.

R W Studios

Specialty - Chain maille jewellery

R W Studios

Artist: Greg DeHetre
Greg DeHetre got his start as a jewelry artist in 2010, while making a birthday present for his then three year old daughter. The introduction to the ancient art of chainmaille was a new awakening for Greg. Greg found the intricacies of the different weaves mesmerizing, and actual weaving meditative. Not wanting to use store bought findings in his chainmaille pieces Greg started learning, and using silversmithing techniques in his designs. As the popularity of his designs became evident, Greg made a conscious decision to work in fine metals, and strive to create only the best quality products.
Chainmaille eventually led Greg to learn various other metalworking and jewelry techniques, to achieve his main goal of making quality, handmade jewelry. A short seven years later, Greg has seen a steady rise in the demand for his unique, quality, handcrafted designs, and now pursues his dreams full time. Greg DeHetre now runs R.W. Studios, a successful state of the art studio, where he works, teaches classes, and holds workshops in various jewelry and metalworking techniques. Greg's passion for his art is evident in every piece of jewelry he creates as Ring Weavers, which accounts for the great demand by his loyal clients, and new customers alike.

Rachel VanRooyen

Specialty - Handcrafted jewellery

Rachel VanRooyen
Rachel Joy VanRooyen was born and raised in Bruce County, Southern Ontario, Canada. She has been designing and creating her own line of jewellery since the mid 1990's. Rachel dyes and paints wooden, paper, clay, and metal beads and accents them with her own hand-made lamp-work glass beads as well as beads made out of crystal, semi-precious stones, shells and other natural materials. For her wire work, Rachel uses sterling sliver, silver plated, copper and brass wire. Rachel twists and hammers her wire to provide sturdy and attractive connectors and accents for her designs. Rachel believes that jewellery should be both practical as well as pretty and, as a result, she does her best to ensure that her pieces are light-weight and durable. Rachel uses sterling silver ear wires and nickel-free gold ear wires for her earrings and also offers a wide variety of clip-on earrings.

Rachel finds her inspiration in nature. "I'm inspired by the weather, good food, and our beautiful and varied Canadian landscape. I love what I do. Even after all this time, I still go into my workshop with a sense of anticipation and pleasure."

The Abstract Heart

Specialty - Acrylic Abstract Art on Canvas

The Abstract Heart

Artist: Carrie McNorgan
Carrie McNorgan is a London, Ontario Abstract Artist. All of her paintings are done with acrylics and various medium gels to integrate texture and effect. She has had rave reviews on and has been commissioned to do many pieces. Most​ of her work is inspired by feelings of the heart. Between the beats lay the soul, searching for a deeper connection of ourselves and our relationships. In the midst of the storm we realize we are not alone, in the beauty of a sunrise we seek to shine, and in the notes of music are we lost in the rhythm of our own story. Each piece calls for reflection and knowledge of one's self.

The Hideaway Fine Art Studio

Specialty - Acrylic painting & photography

The Hideaway Fine Art Studio

Artist: Andrea Sutton
Artist: Andrea Sutton


I came to love drawing, painting and the use of colour at a young age, and it was always a given that I would somehow continue this love affair for the duration of my life. Right out of high school I attended Sheridan College then Georgian College for their Arts programs. Through these programs I was able to experience a range of mediums but I always came back to my love of painting. I continued on my artistic journey, concentrating on honing my skills with acrylic paint. I also found a new passion in photography which allowed me to paint a broader and strictly original, subject matter. I am drawn to the lonely and forgotten places; such as old barns, houses, and landscapes. In contrast I also photograph and paint garden and wild flowers. I appreciate the play of light and shadow and the awesome colours one finds in nature. On canvas I like to manipulate the paint, as best that I can, to show the graduation of colours and shades.

Uncommon Joy

Specialty - Hand painted floor mats, wall art, table centre pieces & greeting cards

Uncommon Joy

Artist: Nancy Lanthier
Colour, Colour and more Colour; and why not! My personality is quite in spirit and yet bold with enthusiasm. When Uncommon Joy was founded, I was in a position in my life where I had no choice but to fearlessly move forward or collapse and fade away. So, I picked up a paint brush, guided it through the "Flame" Orange acrylic paint and started to create my very first 'Floor Mat' titled "Sweet Dreams".

The original intention for my work was to utilize them as floor mats; to place them on the floor, walk on them, wipe them off and to add a "pop" of colour where desired. Yet, as Uncommon Joy has unfolded, most who purchase a mat(s) can visualize them as Wall Art or use them as a Table Centerpiece.

My subject matter can by Anything and Everything. Each new canvas mat is created with the concept of bringing a smile to your face and warmth to your soul. They are durable, functional, whimsical and joyfully painted with bright and flamboyant colours.

I hope you delight in them as much as I have creating them.
