    Throughout his years making unique woodworks, Laurie has discovered a passion for the dynamic differences in colour, contrast, grain and spalting. It can take a long time to best understand how to turn a rough piece of wood into a form that best highlights its colour and shape. Laurie tries to feature the natural aspects of live edge, knots and bark in all his sculptural vessels.

    Kimberly acknowledges that her goal is to create something subjective, intriguing and stimulating. She wants her art to touch and engage heart, mind and soul. As an artist, Kimberly is energetic outgoing and charming, just like the paintings she creates. Her full-of-life attitude perfectly depicts her creations. "For me creating art is a passion. A celebration of the joy and colour to be found in life. I paint as an expression of joy and energy. It is pure delight to squeeze out huge piles of oil paint, squish it around, have it blend, meld, combine. Wet paint, layer upon layer, morphing

    Born and raised in Switzerland, Marianne has been living in BC’s Okanagan Valley for 20 years. Marianne's abstracted, spontaneous paintings allow her the freedom to express emotions and to experiment."My work is always changing, which gives me the pleasure to experiment and to move forward. I work and re-work my paintings until I reach the point when I feel that they express just the right amount of layering, structure and depth. The final colour constellations invite the viewer to find their own personal experience of my pieces. I believe that that’s what art should do." - Marianne Meyer

    By fusing traditional Japanese techniques with modern Canadian inspiration, Minori Takagi has developed a new style of wearable art. Her translucent glass chains are formed by linking handcrafted glass circles into one another, fashioning pieces that seem delicate but are actually resilient — solid loops that gleam radiant in the light. "With these forms, my glass art reminds me of the magic I used to watch my grandmother work—from raw substance emerges a new, poetic creation." Minori's glass jewellery is widely acclaimed. It won Vancouver Magazine’s 2019 “Made in Vancouver” Style categor

    Mary-Jean’s new oil paintings reflect the rugged landscape of British Columbia’s coastline. Her education in both fine art and graphic design play a strong role in the stylization of her work. "The focus of my work is the exploration of looking inward when interpreting the landscape, the opposition of different forms, lines and colour to intensify each element’s dynamic properties. The study of contrasts between massive trunks and juxtaposing the most delicate of foliage, the blackness of a heavy-handed shadow intensified by playful strokes of light." – Mary-Jean Butler

    A senior signature member of The Federation of Canadian Artists, Lorna Dockstader’s simplified style invokes the themes of purity and solitude. “Certain places have the ability to increase our sense of peacefulness, in an unpredictable world.” She believes that subtracting non-essentials, as well as the use of elegant colours, and neutrals, achieves her desired result.

    Geoff Searle adds his own artistic flair to the centuries-old art of Raku ceramics. Pots that are almost dry are polished to a mirror-like finish using the back of a silver spoon. This process is repeated twice more before being fired. Once cooled the pot is wrapped in an assortment of organic materials and metallic salts which are fumed during a second firing. All pieces are fired in the same way, yet they each take on a different appearance, creating unique, complex and exciting works of art.
