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

Button Jar Designz

Specialty - Button and Decoupaged Jewellery

Button Jar Designz

Artist: Susan Hull
After retiring, I wanted to explore my 'creative' side. It began with a bag of brightly coloured buttons on sale at the fabric store. I sewed them onto elastic to create button bracelets. From those bracelets, I moved into using decoupage to embellish the buttons and started making necklaces and earrings as well.
I find the paper I use for the decoupage everywhere....from scrapbook paper to handmade paper. If it's vibrant and colourful... I love it!
My pieces have sold online across Canada, the US, and Europe.

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.

In my art I like to play with acrylic mediums such as inks, fluid/soft body paints, flow/pouring mediums, and texture gels to create organic flows or textures and effects on canvas or wood supports, I also love recreating other everyday things such as old chairs, mirrors, etc. with paint/mediums. In my photography art, I like nature and still life which I often digitally edit to create an abstract effect. As I continue to develop my creative skills, I stay "outside the box" and just have fun.

Research clearly shows that nature, including images of it, provide us with many benefits such as increased creativity and productivity, improved relaxation and stress relief, and even reduced healing times. Lighthouse photography was added five years ago and includes 1st and 3rd prizes in the 2013 Toledo Lighthouse Festival Photo Contest. e-Scapes Photography produces large, gallery-wrapped, fine art images that are ready-to-hang as well as 8x10, 11x14 and 13x19 prints, greeting cards and bookmarks.

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.

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.

Pretty Things Bijoux

Specialty - Upcycled and Vintage Jewellery

Pretty Things Bijoux

Artist: Holly Rutherford
I create jewellery from upcycled old and vintage jewellery pieces. I also work with some pretty unusual materials including vintage zippers, chandelier crystals and old keys. Probably the most unusual material I have been working with recently, is concrete. These concrete pieces are definitely not run of the mill, nor something you will see everyone wearing. All my concrete pieces are made from jewellery grade concrete which is lighter and smoother than the common concrete. That makes them very easy and pleasant to wear. I create unique and often one of a kind pieces, including necklaces, bracelets and earrings. My jewellery creations are designed to be pretty, fun and eco friendly.

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."
