Art by Dawn

Specialty - Acrylic nature paintings

Art by Dawn

Artist: Dawn Lavoie
I have always been fascinated with nature and its vast beauty. Growing up in the small town of Essex, Ontario I have been fortunate to be able to visit the many rural areas to view nature up close. I recently moved to the town of Kingsville, Ontario I am enjoying be close to the lake and the amazing variety of birds that this small town attracts.

I find that we seldom take the time to stop and enjoy the simple beauty in our own backyards. Drying leaves, spent flowers, colourful weeds and many common insects make excellent subjects for painting. I spend many hours trying capturing nature though the lens of my camera before I start to put my ideas on canvas.

Using acrylic paint allows me the versatility of incorporating fine detailed painting with a gentle softness. With each painting I hope to bring out the peace and tranquility that I feel is so abundant in nature. Artist - Dawn Lavoie.

Artistic Expressions

Specialty - Paintings

Artistic Expressions

Artist: Jean Ann Ames
I was born in Windsor, Ontario. I am married and have two daughters and five grandchildren. I have always been interested in art, but have no formal training. I did take classes, experimenting with different mediums, but didn't really pursue art seriously until recently. The medium I like the most is acrylic. I have developed a style of painting, trying to paint a subject as realistic as possible, sometimes air-brushing my backgrounds. My work is displayed in art exhibits, shows and during the summer on Pelee Island. When I am not painting, I am teaching painting classes. The success I have achieved is greatly due to my husband. He is my rock and my greatest critic. My goal is not to be a famous artist, but to share my love of painting with other through my work

Bluewater Bling

Specialty - Crystal & Sterling Jewellery

Bluewater Bling

Artist: Julie Faas
My business started about 7 years ago when I was looking for jewellery to match a formal gown for a fancy gala. After searching and having no luck finding something suitable, I took a course and learned how to make necklaces, earrings and bracelets. I continued to make things and people started asking if I could make pieces for them. Before long I had enough jewellery to start selling at arts and crafts shows. Most of my pieces incorporate Swarovski crystal and many are sterling silver. The name Bluewater Bling reflects my attraction to sparkling jewellery and my home along the St. Clair River.

Button Jar Bracelets

Specialty - Button and Decoupaged Jewellery

Button Jar Bracelets

Artist: Susan Hull
When I retired from teaching I knew I wanted to explore my 'creative side.' One day, while in my local fabric store, I spied large bags of colourful buttons on sale. I bought them, and waited for inspiration. I started by sewing buttons onto elastic to make stretchy bracelets. Always looking for ways to change things up, I started decoupaging paper onto buttons and making bracelets. That was the beginning of Button Jar Bracelets. I opened my Etsy shop in 2015, and expanded into making necklaces which has become my focus. I am always on the lookout for interesting papers to use in my decoupage. Recently my work was featured in Renaissance Magazine. My jewellry has been purchased by customers locally, nationally, and internationally.

CH Jewelry

Specialty - One of a kind jewellery

CH Jewelry

Artist: Cheryl Greenfield
I saw a friend stringing a bracelet and thought it looked like fun. The next thing there was a bead store in front of me and I was on my way. That was about ten years ago and it has been a wonderful retirement hobby. What women from primitive times on has not been fascinated with beads. I am self taught from reading beading magazines and making countless mistakes. I learned early on that trying to copy someone else's ideas did not work for me. When I am buying supplies I look for odd unique looking beads that I have no idea how they can be used. Then I can be creative , thus 90% of my jewelry is one of a kind pieces and original.

Cranmer Earth Design

Specialty - Wooden birdhouses

Cranmer Earth Design

Artist: Travis Cranmer
As a woodworker, my ultimate goal is to create something that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. I started building birdhouses as a hobby while I completed my undergrad degree in Biology at the University of Guelph. After tweaking my grandfather's design, I believe I have created a birdhouse that is optimal for house wrens and chickadees. We want to attract wrens to our yard as they can consume many of the insect pests that attack our vegetable or flower gardens. These birdhouses are easy to mount, a breeze to clean, are coated with a non-toxic preservative and have a high success rate. I started selling birdhouses to the Guelph Farmer's Market and have since taken part in many markets, shows and expos between Sarnia and Toronto. Every product is built with attention to detail and best of all - it's made in Canada.

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".

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.

Many customers come to my house wanting a special bracelet to match an outfit or 2 or 3. I sell my bracelets in Petrolia and environs during the summer. I enjoy this pastime and like to teach others this art form.

Photography Phos3

Specialty - Fine art photography

Photography Phos3
We are absolutely, positively, passionate about the world we live in and we use our cameras to capture all the big and small moments we encounter along the way. The world is our studio. We are located in Chatham, Ontario, but we are not limited to this area. When not on a shoot, you will often find us storm chasing or driving down country roads photographing abandoned houses. Hopefully, if we have done our job right using light and our vision; it will stimulate some sort of an emotion within you. We shoot to thrill. This thought process flows into the way we photograph our subjects. We pay attention to the details, whether it is; people, nature, landscapes, weather, or your wedding day.

Pottery by Terry

Specialty - Handbuilt wheelthrown pottery

Pottery by Terry

Artist: Terry Recker
I love to work with my hands to do many arts. I am a watercolourist as well as doing sketching, acrylic painting etc. I am inspired by nature and it's beautiful colour pallets. I find wheel throwing my pottery to be very calming and therapeutic. I can be very creative with my hand built pottery as well. I work mainly with porcelain. I receive great satisfaction in hearing compliments of my work. If it makes others happy, it makes me happy too. I am in the process of teaching my grandchildren how to create pottery and they are starting to love it too. I work at my studio at home following time at both Lambton and Fanshawe colleges. I have been involved with arts since childhood and never found boredom. Life is always wonderful while I am creating and having fun with pottery.

Pretty Things Bijoux

Specialty - Upcycled and Vintage Jewellery

Pretty Things Bijoux

Artist: Holly Rutherford
I create my jewelry from upcycled old and vintage pieces. I work with some pretty unusual materials including vintage zippers, chandelier crystals and old keys. With these I create unique and often one of a kind pieces, including necklaces, bracelets and earrings. My inspiration comes from my mother's jewelry box. I love the sparkle and patina of vintage jewelry. Although I have kept my mother's treasures in her sweet little jewelry box, I do use other people's forgotten gems. My jewelry creations are designed to be pretty, fun and eco friendly.

Serafynn Studios

Specialty - wool felted tote bags, wallets, and others from hand dyed specialty wool

Serafynn Studios

Artist: Robynn Marks
Robynn Marks considers her participation in creativity to be a spiritual experience, inspiring the name referring to the Seraphim angels. Interestingly enough, St. Seraphim is the patron saint of beautiful, warm clothing, handmade with love.
This journey began with a small girl, learning the art of working with fibers from her grandmother and aunt. Robynn continued to learn over the next 35 years, expanding her knowledge and love of all things involving yarn. Other pursuits in creativity included felting, leather and metalwork, painting, beading, and sewing, which adds a new level of detail to her finished projects. Look closer and you'll see summer wraps with hand painted shawl pins, or the artistic yet functional felted handbags. Each pattern is uniquely designed by Robynn.

Susie van Hoeve

Specialty - Abstract art and photo prints

Susie van Hoeve

Artist: Susie Van Hoeve
Self taught and an amateur and a hobbyist in abstract art and photography, I love to explore and experiment with colour and texture. In my art I play with acrylic mediums such as inks, fluid/soft body paints, flow mediums, and texture gels to create organic flows or textures and effects on canvas or wood supports. In my photography, I like nature and still life which I often digitally edit to create an abstract effect (prints and framed prints). As I continue to develop my creative skills I like to stay "outside the box" and just have fun.

Doug loves working with his hands, and gets the same feeling of satisfaction when a project is finished regardless if it is an heirloom quality sculpted table he has spent many hours hand shaping with a rasp, or a one of a kind cutting board custom made for your kitchen.

Watercolours by Mary Jane Gagnier

Artist: Mary Jane Gagnier

She has been in two different classes in Florida; the one she started in and also in an advanced watercolour class. She sees a picture and can visualize it in a painting and tries it. Mary Jane is always pleasantly surprised at the way it comes out. She truly loves to try something a little different and challenging.
Her husband has been a big help to her. He has taken up matting and framing and frames all her artwork. She hopes that you will enjoy her work.
