Often my paintings come from a tiny blossom that is going unnoticed because it is tucked in and hidden deep inside the foliage of a plant. I love to draw it out and put it on centre stage.

I love plopping down on a park bench, on a streetcorner, in a café, and pulling out my sketchbook to capture the sights and scenes in a way that goes far beyond photography. When I look back at my sketches done on location, I remember the way things looked, sounded and smelled.

My viewpoint is like the lens of the camera. The drawing I start with looks quite defined and in focus however as I add layers the image becomes quite blurry. It isn’t until I add the darks that I start to feel like it is becoming clearer. Then, when I iron the wax off everything comes into focus!

Artists’ Workshop is a diverse group of 9 artists who use different mediums to create art. We come from varied artistic educational backgrounds, and each of us have experienced and grown our art practises in different ways. Our group meets each Monday from September through April at Grace-Westminster Church to create art.

When I paint I feel joyful as most of my memories of the prairie remind me of these things. I hope my paintings give the viewer a feeling of freedom, an appreciation of the land, and the beauty of the wide open spaces and big dramatic skies.

The weekend reminded us how much we enjoy sharing our art and talking about art with those who appreciate it just as much as we do. By the end of the show, our feet were tired, but our hearts were full.

“Everyone needs somewhere to fit in. Whether your tribe is large and mainstream, or small and niche, it feels good to find a space to connect with others. I am fortunate to have this connection in Artists’ Workshop.” ∽ Sharron Schoenfeld

Growing up on a farm in southern Saskatchewan has given me a great appreciation for the prairie and the landscape. Having parents as farmers meant you were always looking at the crops, the garden, creeks, sloughs, bushes in the fields, long gravel roads, and the sky – will it rain, hail, be excessively windy or hot in the summer, how much snow will we get?

While I love exploring new media and techniques, I regularly circle back to my favourite: collage. Thinking about collage in terms of connections brings so much to mind.

During the last two years I have spent a lot of time working on a children’s book for my granddaughters. I have always loved children’s book art. I think that it is the storytelling aspect that draws me to these beautiful and often amazing illustrations and images.
