ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Sue studied Fine Art at the University of Guelph, furthering her studies in Edmonton, Toronto, then moving to Port Credit, Ontario.
Sue’s work is narrative, colourful and appeals to people on multiple levels. Regardless of what is painted her style remains consistent. Images are a little folksy, with a sense of whimsy. Sue applies paint & charcoal ener gizing images with marks, lines and patterns. Her paintings are created from imagination, based on ideas or visual memory that often tell a personal story.
Sue exhibits her work throughout Southern Ontario where awards of excellence have been won in many exhi bitions. Her works can be found in private collections throughout Canada, the US, and the UK.
An instructor at DVSA, Etobicoke Art Group and Haliburton School of the Arts.
Rosemary works primarily in the mediums of collage and acrylic, but is also known to create sculpture and photography. She was the first Resident Reclaim Artist at HSAD and has exhibited widely with works in nation al and international collections.
Grounded in art principles and honours the process. Rosemary has a long-term project in and about landfill, as it applies to the artist and the socioeconomics in society.
Working currently with collage and found things as they apply to the history of print and manufacturing.
She is a Polish-Canadian artist based in Mississauga. Before devoting herself to her passion – painting, Mar garet spent more than 30 years in graphic design and co-founded Our Kids Media with her husband.
Her preferred medium is oil. She admires simplicity and is attracted to minimal use of colour. Her work can be described as modern, symbolic, narrative, emotional, energetic, and imbalanced, and mostly reflects on her personal experiences, and personal journey; emigration, changing counties, starting a new life, making choic es, and always leaving something behind.
Besides paintings, she is creating clay sculptures and 3D installations very closely related to subjects of her paintings. Margaret’s paintings have been accepted and awarded in art exhibitions and juried shows. Her works have been on display at Art Galleries in Ontario and Quebec
