Broda, Maggie
As I paint, I hope to simplify the immediate moment as it occurs on the landscape. I use colour and light to melt impressionism with realism so that the viewers may draw their personal experiences with nature to complete the paintings.

Crosgrey, Christopher
My paintings deal with northern and cottage country themes, and explore the interplay of light and shadow throughout the seasons. They’re generally loosely rendered with brushwork and colour emphasized over detail. 
Davis, Martha
Martha's paintings have evolved out of a  recreated landscape in order to construct a loose, impressionistic close-up view of what she sees. What appeals to Martha in watercolour is its delicacy and huge element of surprise; whereas with acrylic and oil, the palette knife sculpts the canvas in exciting waves of juicy combinations.

A colourist painter using vivid brush strokes and photographic blurs Tom’s work draws the viewer into a world of nostalgia and reverie.  
Donabie, Wendie

Durnan, Dale
Dale's whimsical, sentimental style lends itself to memory portraits of life and times both old and new.

Harti, Linda - Windflowers Art Studio
I love both nature and human elements, and my colourful abstract paintings reveal hidden images of both. Many years ago I moved away from painting with brushes and am now very comfortable using my credit card to push and pull paint across different surfaces. Layering and underpainting reveal powerful impressions. I love to discover new ways to express my creativity.

Snow, Margot
Colour is the essence of my work - it is uppermost in my mind when I choose a subject and is what challenges and interests me most. Colour can change a viewer's mood, it can stimulate a feeling of peacefulness and well-being and it can awaken a soul.”
