Spotlight on ~ Valerie Munch

Painting in watercolour has inspired me to stop and enjoy all things bathed in light and casting interesting shadows. Red poppies in my garden, I have never had as many, and moments from a special trip to Nova Scotia, are among the subjects of my work  for our group show at Grace Westminster Church auditorium,Continue reading “Spotlight on ~ Valerie Munch”

Spotlight on ~ Lorraine Khachatourians

What inspires me to paint is usually something nearby, whose shape or colour interests me. Highlighting those bottles or shells or flowers with focussed light brings out the elements of those items that intrigue me. As a result, I collect things – old bottles, old silver, shells, glass floats, leaves, seeds, everyday things – andContinue reading “Spotlight on ~ Lorraine Khachatourians”

Spotlight on ~ Monika Kinner-Whalen

I am a professional fibre artist specializing in freestyle embroidery. My creations are expressions of my love for the prairie and originate from my own photographs and personal experiences of Saskatchewan.

Spotlight on ~ Margaret Bremner

I have never been a painter of local landscapes. While houses and buildings, trees and skies are recurring subjects, they are figments of my imagination, realistic-enough looking, but wonky and whimsical. I hope that my artwork uplifts the spirits, is a source of comfort and tranquility, and reinvigorates a sense of the sacred.   ForContinue reading “Spotlight on ~ Margaret Bremner”

Spotlight on ~ Kathryn Green

“How do you decide what to paint?” That question fascinates me. I paint ‘intuitively,’ meaning that when I begin a work, I don’t have a set idea of what I am going to produce; I start painting and see what happens, making choices as the work develops. (I used to say, “I don’t really knowContinue reading “Spotlight on ~ Kathryn Green”

Spotlight On ~ Paige Mortensen

It is all about the texture. It is the texture in an object or scene that entices me. Creating a piece of art gives me the opportunity to spend more time with it, really getting to know the details.   One beautiful afternoon in the fall, after a day of painting with our Artists WorkshopContinue reading “Spotlight On ~ Paige Mortensen”
