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

BeadKRap

Specialty - Jewellery - lamp work glass beads

BeadKRap

Artist: Karen Reece
I am a studio artist, residing in Colorado until relocating back to Toronto in 2017. I have done fine arts and crafts shows throughout Colorado, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and now two years in Ontario.
After graduating from University with a BA, subsequent coursework focused on colour and material development, fashion design, accounting and metal-smithing. My jewelry reflects my experience with fiber, my unique sense of color and includes my own lampwork (torch) glass beads. I am fortunate enough to make a connection with the people who buy my work. Adornment is personal. My buyers connect with me, my story, and what I make.

All my larger beads are made by me, by hand. The glass is melted in the heat of a single-fuel torch and wound around a steel mandrel, then kiln-annealed for durability. Most of the beads include handmade bead caps where the pattern is lazered on, or metal-stamped, and the cap is riveted onto the bead.

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.

Caribbean Treasures

Specialty - Seaglass art

Caribbean Treasures

Artist: Sheri Wright
I've always been a beach loving girl. I could spend hours just walking the shores staring out at the waves and day dreaming. My passion for the ocean grew when my daughter went to medical school on a little island in the Caribbean. I visited her there every chance I could.
I started picking up sea glass on my walks on the sand. After 10 plus years and pounds of glass my husband suggested I start doing something with all the glass or stop picking it up. That's how Caribbean Treasures was born. I wanted to continue walking and picking up these 'jewels'
The glass 'speaks' to me. I don't alter the pieces at all. I look at each piece individually and it tells me what it should be. Each art piece I make is as unique as the person who purchases it.

Driftwood and More

Specialty - Driftwood Art

Driftwood and More

Artist: Alina Wojciechowski
I started playing with the driftwood 2 years ago and since I can't stop it has become my passion. Driftwood is such a wonderful material, it has so many characteristics, textures, colours, shapes. Every piece speaks it's own story. Therefore it is not only my work but a collaboration between the wood and myself. So in my own way, I am making an environmental statement, by reusing, upcycling and giving a new life to the wood.

Her fine art photography focusses on the vibrancy of nature's colours, patterns and textures.

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.

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".

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.

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.

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.

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
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 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."

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.
