Kerensa Haynes
Artwork:
“Still life with two cherries”. Oil on canvas 7” by 7”.
Donated by the Artist. Valued at $430.
"Kerensa Haynes has been oil painting
for over ten years. She holds
a degree
in
Visual
Arts
from
the
University
of
Western Ontario,
London
and
an
Advanced Diploma in Game Art &
Design. She paints full time at her studio
at 1000 Parker St, Studio #350.
Kerensa is interested in exploring the
aesthetic aspect of her objects using and
combining various techniques. Every oil
painting has it's own beginning and end,
each unique to itself depending on the
mood of the artist.
She uses the space of the canvas to isolate the object being painted, this tends to
be a general motif in her work."

Elizabeth Barnes
Artwork:
“Binary Moth”. Monoprint. Framed 13” by13”.
Donated by the Artist. Valued at $300. Starting bid $125.
“Elizabeth Barnes resides in Vancouver.
She holds a Masters of Fine Arts from
the University of North Carolina and a
Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tyler School
of Art in Philadelphia.
Her paintings are informed by an interest
in science and technology, as well as by
her interest in the science of pigments
and color theory. The paintings are
made by layering thin glazes of
translucent color. Some layers include
technical drawings, while others include
transformation of the pigments by
applying drops of solvents, rubbing, scratching or brushing. The subtle shifts of
color, combined with technical explorations, create a tenuous balance fluctuating
between visceral and cerebral. The interaction of color and form appeals to a
sensory moment which reminds the viewer of the interconnectedness of all living
things.”

It never ceases to amaze
me how each piece is directly affected by its location in the kiln, producing unique
variations with rich colour tones and textual surfaces.
My overwhelming desire to make functional dishes is grounded in the belief that it
is important to have handmade items in our lives to help us remain connected to
the natural world and each other. Most of my work is wheel-thrown and altered into
square or triangular shapes. Pieces are decorated with impressions from nature or
geometric shapes that attempt to enhance the form. My hope is that the design
depicts where I am from and engages you to look around the piece through each
framed window, noticing the different rich earthy tones and varying textures. I
strive to make the form of each piece interesting and strong, capable of functioning
so well that it will be enjoyed and used often because it elevates the ordinary into
something special.”

Donated by the Artist. Valued at $850. Starting bid $300.
“Louis Kahn, the American architect, said: ‘good
architecture makes the intangible tangible so as to
evoke the intangible’. I long to do just that.
I paint about the human condition, about the mystery
of life. About the tantalizing fact that we have only
intimations, and will never know, the nature of reality.
About the illusion that life is secure whereas in fact
anything could happen at any time to totally change
its course. About loss, fragility, old age, and
mortality. And also about compassion and love
offering redemption from our plight.
Figures in my work are often androgynous and not of a particular person. Rather
they are about what confronts us because we are human.
I
try to capture that moment of bewilderment when structure and order in our
existence breaks down, everything looks unfamiliar, and we are sure of nothing. I
use drafting film because I feel that it creates the ephemeral quality that I want in
my work. The figures are without settings as I do not want to place them in any one
human context.
use oil paint as I love the materiality of the medium. In these works, I am not
interested in painting the body in a realistic manner, but rather in finding a way to
represent it so that it resonates more deeply with the viewer.”

Faye Gordon-Lewis
Artwork:

Donated by the Artist. Valued at $600.
“Nature is my muse - whether it is the
intimacy of the inside of a blossom, a
cluster of fruit, a stand of winterized forest
by moonlight or a scene from a British
Columbia coastline. I work in acrylics,
watercolour and pastels. My technique
involves applying thin layers of paint
initially, working to a thicker, more opaque
finish in jewel-like colours.
Although
travel
has
stimulated my
aesthetic experience, my images reflect
the immediacy of my environment. I
completed a four-year program at Emily Carr University and then pursued my
Bachelor of Arts, in Studio Art, at the University of British Columbia. My work has
been shown mainly in British Columbia.
My art is in private and institutional collections both nationally and abroad. Also, my
art has been published on the cover of a University of British Columbia course
calendar and in an issue of the Federation of Canadian Artists’ Art Avenue.”

choose, individually and collectively, to preserve the dead on intellectual, spiritual,
and emotional levels. By exposing intimate and personal visual details alongside
structural landscapes, the photos are meant to depict individual lives that once
were, and more importantly, those that survive, carry on and remember.”

Ann R. Uusoja
Artwork:
“Gypsy”. Turquoise, white jade, amazonite. quartz, old beach glass,
and pewter necklace. Donated by the Artist. Valued at $125.
“Ann Uusoja was born in 1954 in St. Catherine’s Ontario,
the only child of Estonian parents. Drawn by the beauty
and strength of the West Coast landscape, she moved to
Vancouver in 1976. Ann traveled extensively around the
world. She took a teaching certificate and courses in the
masters program in Art Education at UBC and spent
several years employed as a child life specialist at BC
Children’s Hospital. She focused on the therapeutic
effects of art on hospitalized children. Ann’s decision to
develop her own art came in 1988.
Symbols play an important role in her imagery. Not only do they stimulate the
imagination, but they transcend time, language, and culture. Communication is
made possible by the universality of symbols. By incorporating ancient symbols in
a modern way through the use vivid colours, bold juxtapositions, and strong linear
composition, primitive memories are stirred. By touching these chords, Ann hopes
to bring attention to a belief system that revered the Earth as a sacred body and
treated her with respect.” Website: http://circlecraft.net/page345.htm

Ross den Otter
Artwork:
“Tempest”. Mixed media, plaster,
carbon, acrylic and epoxy on panel 12” by 16”.
Donated by the Artist. Valued at $500.
Ross was born Port Alberni BC in 1969 and was
raised in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.
He is a photographer, mixed media artist, small
scale sculptor and photographic printmaker of over
25 years. A natural collaborator, he has worked
with many of Vancouver’s fine art and commercial
photographers.
As a child he was taught the importance of
stewardship of the land, conservation of resources
and creation of a strong community. Those lessons
formed his core values and have guided his personal growth through his life. Ross
is an active scuba diver and has amassed hundred of dives off the west coast
shores, assisted in the training of divers with physical challenges, and worked with
conservation agencies in the annual Ling Cod egg mass counts. As an advocate,
he proudly contributed to his community by negotiating a complex agreement
resulting in a six million dollar improvement to the second purpose built Artist
Live/Work studio building in Vancouver while creating a protected green space, in
commemoration of Brewery Creek, on what was a neighbouring vacant lot; a
process of negotiation that spanned nearly a decade.
Artistically, his photographic works have appeared in publications across North
America; have travelled with and promoted arts and cultural performers and
performances, and are held in private collections. He calls Vancouver home,
travels to expand his cultural base and, leading by example, he can be seen
zipping across the city on his electrically powered motorcycle.”

White stoneware vase hand painted with a black slip 11.5” tall.
Donated by the Artist. Valued at $135.
“Sylvia set up her own studio in 1977 - working with
brown, speckled, high-fired stoneware. By the mid-
80's, she wanted more colors in her work so she
began using white clay bodies and an electric kiln to
get bright, clear colors.
I am interested in the changes that can occur with
the interplay of form, function and surface design.
Playing with these elements is what I find interesting
and challenging.”

Jessie Forman
Artwork: “Nester”. Materials: Needle felted wool, wire, floral tape.
Donated by the Artist. Valued at $40.
“Jessie's exploration into the technique of Felting
began with wet felted slippers, an endeavor fueled
by both curiosity and necessity
during a winter
spent in a basement apartment in Halifax. From
there she discovered the felting needle and began
to create small creatures, eventually focusing on
birds. Jessie's first exhibition of her felted work took
place at The Lilac Festival in Calgary, Alberta.
In preparation for the event Jessie took her work on
vacation with her to a cabin in Saskatchewan. When she wasn't being attacked by
mosquitoes, Jessie was able to draw inspiration from the surrounding wildlife.
Jessie's birds continue to evolve. She has since shown her work at Birkeland
Brother’s Wool on Main Street in Vancouver. She enjoys accepting commissions
for new ideas. Jessie delights in the personalities of each individual bird and
measures their ‘success’ by whether or not they make her chuckle when they
stand up in front of her.”

Artwork:
“Where are we going? I don’t know”. Mixed media on paper framed
16” by 16”. Donated by the Artist. Valued at $120.
“Born in Hong Kong and educated in Canada,
the artist's works have an Asian sensitivity that
is intuitive to her heritage, blended seamlessly
with her adopted Canadian culture in a way that
is impossible to stereotype.
Michelle's current research interests lie in the
play between what is cute and what is
repulsive. Cuteness triggers nurturing instincts
and is life-affirming, whereas bodily
imperfection is the last thing we want to think of
after
dinner.
Her
style
has
been
sweetly
influenced by the copious amount of manga she read in childhood.
Her artworks have been featured in many television shows and magazines,
including Breakfast Television (Vancouver), Photo Magazine (Hong Kong), Crow
Toes Quarterly (Richmond) among others. Her newest series Terrible Beauty was
published in Ricepaper Magazine in November 2008. Her artworks are in private
collections in Asia, North American, Europe and Africa, and in Canada Council Art
Bank collection.” Website: www.artatsnow.com

“Laurie was born in the Euro-flavoured city of
Montreal, Quebec, so it was inevitable that she
learned how to throw on a scarf and say ‘Ooh lala, je
ne sais quoi.’ ‘I imagine it was my first sight of
sparkling, holiday lights on that snowy Christmas Eve
when I was just 7 months old, that really captivated
me and I've been crazy for beautiful 'sparklies' ever
since’
.
Early forays into fashion (okay
...
dress-up
)
and later
interests in architecture, film noir, literature, theatre
and art history culminated in a college scholarship and a BFA degree at university.
Laurie draws on her fine arts background and a lifelong fascination with beauty and
design to inspire her colorful creations. While doing wardrobe on Broadway touring
shows, she began to make jewellery. It was only when asked by the stars she
worked with where they could get her pieces, that a bijoux business was born.
Laurie's jewellery has been in almost a dozen locations around BC, but is now
concentrated in very large collections in selected stores. Her playfully named bijoux
collections embrace many eras and eclectic styles using lustrous, fresh-water
pearls, semi-precious gemstones, sparkling crystals, rare and vintage ‘treasures’
and exotic beads from around the world.”

Artwork: “Mystic Rose”. Mixed media hand painted digital print in Fresco plaster 8”

“Veronica Foster was inspired to become an artist at an early age by a book on the
Renaissance. Her father, also an artist, taught her to draw and encouraged her to
develop her career. With an academic foundation provided by her studies at the
Vancouver Vocational Institute, Capilano College and Emily Carr Institute of Art
and Design, she prospered for over ten years as an in-house and freelance graphic
designer and airbrush illustrator.
Returning to the source of her inspiration, Veronica chose to explore her interest in
architectural decorative arts. A modern day alchemist, she has developed a
versatile repertoire of both contemporary and historic decorative painting
techniques. A series of contemporary fresco fragments she created has captured
the attention of the media on several occasions and subsequently the studio and
her artwork have been featured on: Rogers Community Cable Global Television
News with Dave Gerry, The Discovery Channel, "Travellers" Shaw Cable, and "City
Nights". As a result of this media coverage some of the fresco artwork is now
available as art prints through Art in Motion, an international art publishing
company. In her career as a professional artist Veronica has worked on many local
and international projects, collaborating with interior design professionals to create
personalized works of art for their discerning clientele.”

what my grade 9 teacher had said,

Thinking of becoming a tattoo artist, I studied Chinese brush painting and took

So I quit my job as a scale tech, rented a warehouse and

I bought a 44 inch inkjet to make my own
but I gave it my best shot all because I felt guilty about not being an artist.
I had my first art exhibition at a friend's
salon; it was the biggest day of my life. All
my close friends and family helped make
the food, my daughter sold raffle tickets
and my wife looked after the guest book. I
tracked down my Grade 9 art teacher and
she came. I tried to find the RCMP officer. I
put letters on 20 of my paintings and when
people came in they got a sheet with 20
spaces and were asked to give names to
my paintings, it was a big hit. When I went
onto the sundeck after the show, all my
friends cheered and clapped it was very moving for me.
My teacher liked one painting the best (so I named it "Teacher's Pet"). Last year I
got a call from the school board, my teacher was retiring and she requested one of
my paintings as a retirement gift. I was her pupil the first year she started teaching,
now 31 years later she is retiring. At her retirement party they gave her the painting
that she had liked at my show, she started crying and we hugged, it was very
moving. I don't think teachers that are good realize how much they influence our
lives.” Website: http://www.johnsayer.ca/

Valued at $150.
36.2
Artwork:
Hand made grey wool shawl neck wrap - Shibori stitched and bound,
slashed, over- dyed and fulled. Valued at $150.
“Yvonne Wakabayashi has for many years
taught surface design, both at Capilano
College and the University College of the
Fraser Valley. Yvonne Wakabayashi’s heritage
is reflected in her textiles; a fusion of the
ancient Japanese ancestry that inspires her
combined with the new ideas and processes of
the modern world that enriches her work.
Yvonne credits a workshop with Hiroyuki
Shindo, Indigo Master and contemporary
shibori artist, in Japan in 1983 with bringing her
Japanese identity to the surface. At the time,
she visited Arimatsu where arashi shibori indigo dyed cotton for kimonos was first
developed and she has since made it her signature technique. She uses silk
produced in a small family mill in Gunma Prefecture in Japan that responds
especially well to sculptured forms. With this traditional approach as a foundation,
Yvonne has made personal adaptations to create her own unique style of art which
also combines careful planning with carefree spontaneity.
Arashi shibori enables Yvonne to manipulate an
undulating surface evocative of the ever changing
waves of the ocean that is a link from the ancestral
island home of her family in Japan to modern day life
on the west coast of Canada. Another important
melding of east and west for Yvonne is teaching; a
most honourable profession from her heritage that
has allowed for reciprocal exchanges with students
that open her mind to modern processes and novel
directions while remaining true to the roots of her
craft. Yvonne’s work can be found in private
collections around the world.” Website:

College of Art. As a full-time freelance illustrator since 1984, Desmond has enjoyed
collaborating with top designers here in Canada, the U.S., and increasingly in the
European Union. Although his trusty airbrush has been largely replaced by a
MacBook, his style remains “heightened realism” – well-suited to literal or idealized
representation.

Advertising clients include American Express, Apple, Cadbury, Coca-Cola, General
Motors, Hain Celestial, Harmony Airways, Koyo Foods, Levi-Strauss, Loblaw Inc,

Jacqueline White
Artwork: Ceramic platter. Donated by the Artist. Valued at $110.
“Jacqueline White has been working with clay for nearly thirty years. Her works
have had yearly Artist Sponsored Showings since 1980. Early pieces were
production ware that she developed through attending numerous seminars,
conferences, workshops and special events. Over the past 6 years the focus of her
work has been to develop a more sculptural approach to the art of
ceramics through exploration of form and design. However, her first love is
producing pieces people can use and love. Ms. White’s work has been
enthusiastically received by the public and has been bought by collectors in
England, Australia, United States, Ontario, New Brunswick and of course her
home-town Vancouver.” My work is
inspired by the pursuit of creating. Clay
gives me the opportunity to work with
organic material which is enhanced by
the process of heat, flame, and ash The ..
sculptures and pots I create develop in a
spontaneous fashion following the
natural rhythm of the clay without limitation of formal convention.”

client base to the point where he could realize his dream of full-time cartooning—
which is what he has been doing since 1990. Being goofy, satirical, whimsical,
probing human nature in his cartoons—this is what Graham loves to do.”

Donated by the Artist. Valued at $350.
“Yukiko was born and grew up in Osaka, Japan, but has lived in
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada since 1976. She has
been surrounded by art for most of her life. Her grandmother
was a master of the tea ceremony and of flower arrangements,
and one of her aunts is an accomplished painter in Japan.
Yukiko's early training was as a painter. Her long association
with the Canadian artist Toni Onley, both during and after their
marriage, has been a significant influence on her work. In 1989,
painting led her to photography. Self taught, Yukiko has
become one of the finest portrait photographers on the West Coast. Her approach
to her subjects is intuitive and spontaneous. Her portraits are elegant,
sophisticated, and timeless. Because her wedding photographs also display these
qualities, she is much sought-after as a wedding photographer.”
“Besides visual art, Yukiko is interested in a wide range of music, dance and
theatre productions. For many years, she was an enthusiastic equestrienne.
Currently she is a volunteer photographer for the Modern Baroque Opera Company
in Vancouver. Recently she has started dancing the Argentine Tango. There have
been numerous exhibitions of Yukiko's work in Vancouver, Canada.” Website:

“I think I have always been an artist and when I left high school that is what I was
going to be. However, life got in the way and I became a teacher for 32 years with
a Masters Degree in Intermediate Education. I loved teaching art to my students,
putting on musicals with my choirs, painting stage sets
and designing costumes. This has carried right into my
life at present working with seniors to put on musicals. I
have played the piano since I was 4 years old studying
Toronto Conservatory for 10 years and teaching piano
privately. I use my love art in my garden, designing
areas and building garden sculptures. I sew, carve
wood, and play the ukulele all of which influence my
painting. I have taken courses at the Whiterock
Summer School for Art, Emily Carr School of Art,
worked with well-known Vancouver Artists showing my

all
of
his adult
life,

Norm has grown up on the West Coast where he takes
inspiration from nature, striving for a unique perspective
on traditional views. He is intrigued by the interplay of
colour, light, and water: and challenges himself to
discover what combinations of the three create the most dramatic, yet peaceful,
images.
Norm has participated in many shows at the Burnaby Arts Council, the Burnaby Art

he studied at Langara College (Fine Arts Diploma), UBC (B.Ed.) and Emily Carr
(photography and printmaking). In 1979 he moved to New York to continue
studying printmaking, and was employed as Assistant to the Director at Pratt
Graphics Center. Later he worked in the storage and preparations department at
the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and set up and ran the etching department
at Watanabe Studio Ltd. Since moving back to Vancouver in 1992, he has
continued to work in a variety of media. He won the public art competition for
Library Square in 1995. Aside from teaching and commissions he has worked in
the motion picture industry since 1994 in various capacities, chiefly as a scenic
painter. In 2003 he was one of the team of draughtsmen who executed Sol
LeWitt's Wall Drawing #1100 at the Pearson Airport in Toronto.
This past year Joseph has been working on graphic design for a CD titled Amchitka
- The 1970 concert that launched Greenpeace featuring Joni Mitchel, James Taylor
and Phil Ochs. It is due for release through Greenpeace this Fall.

Since then I have been drawing, painting, and

I have always enjoyed sharing and discussing art making with others, and this is

“Richard has pursued an interest in photography as a hobby and an art form for
many years. His special interest is landscapes that capture a natural beauty but
also evoke a sense of the supernatural. By imposing slightly surreal elements into
natural scenes he attempts to create a mirror of reality that helps us to see the
spiritual side of nature. Where boundaries collide new forms appear. When nature
meets itself new images form. By blending scenes of nature together a new
perspective is born to help us see more clearly art as nature and nature as art.”

“I am a multi-medium artist in my final year
at Emily Carr University of Art. My practice
ranges from painting, sculpture,
installation, costume replication to metal
working and textiles. In my works, I draw
my subjects from the materials themselves
or usually, the natural world.
As a developing artist I have become increasingly aware of
animal rights and the dire situation of animal exploitation. My
work seeks to question and address the anthropocentric
mentality generally displayed towards the treatment of all non-
human species that co-inhabit the Earth”.

“The paintings of Anne Freidank depict happy scenes
from the world as it was in the "good old days". All
her works show her love for flowers and animals of
which cats play a special role. She creates whimsical
images of these beloved mystical creatures and if
you look carefully you will discover that there is a kitty
cat in every one of her pictures.
She started painting in 1974 - in the beginning just for fun. But after
a few years she developed into a serious and very successful
artist. Most of her work is done “Under Glass" which means
painting in reverse on a sheet of glass - a 500 year old technique
which was a folk art in Europe. Exhibitions of her paintings have
taken place in all major German cities, as well as in Salzburg,
Paris, New York and Victoria, BC. Several copies of her paintings
have been published by various publishers. Her first calendar titled
"Funny Cats" was brought out in 1984.
For 30 years
1988 she
Anne Freidank lived in
Munich -
In
immigrated
to

Growing
up
in
Guyana, South
America exposed me to vivid colours
and wide open spaces, which is why
I
am naturally inclined to paint
landscapes.
My main
concerns in
painting
are
design,
space,
light,
value, and an emotional connection
to each painting. Painting landscapes
gives me an opportunity to escape
into
the world
I
create on canvas,
and I hope that viewers feel a little of
what I felt when I created each
painting.
To
satisfy my
craving for
colour and culture I return to South America to immerse myself in the milieu.
I
received my true art education by traveling and visiting major galleries in Europe.
My work is influenced by the French Impressionists, and I spend several hours
studying their paintings at the Musee d’Orsay whenever I visit Paris. Standing a
few feet away from paintings by Goya and Velasquez at the Prado in Madrid, and a
close up view of Picasso’s Guernica, have been very inspiring moments for me. My
experiences while traveling through Europe, Australia, New Zealand, West and
North Africa, the South Pacific, the Caribbean, South America, the USA, and
Canada, have greatly influenced my work.
am an Active Member with The Federation of Canadian Artists and the North
Shore Artists Guild. My paintings have been in several exhibitions including The
Ferry Bldg. Gallery, The Silk Purse, West Van. Memorial Library, The Federation of
Canadian Artists Gallery, Bellevue Art Gallery, The Shanghai Art Fair, and the
North Shore Artists’ Guild Annual Exhibition and sale. My paintings are in private
collections in Canada, Ireland, Guyana, Australia and New Zealand.
I
I
am happiest with a paint brush in my hand, and plan to keep painting for the rest
of my life.

“Lea grew up in the United States, moving from the east
coast to the west coast in mid 60s. As an only child and
being raised in an era of children should be seen and not
heard, crayons, paper and pencils became her silent
companions. Encouraged by both parents and teachers at
school, she continued on her goal to become a
productive, accomplished artist. Art Center College of Art
and Design in Los Angeles attracted her based on its fine
reputation and she majored in advertising illustration. After
completing 3 years of study, Lea earned a Bachelor of
Fine Art and headed north to Vancouver, BC, a place which she had visited during
a holiday between semesters. Lea began working as a freelance illustrator and
photographer mainly with advertising agencies and some notable personal clients
including BC Forest Products and the UBC
Botanical Gardens.
In the late eighties, Lea had the opportunity to
further her studies and undertook three years at
the Emily Carr College of Art and Design,
completing a Diploma of Fine Art with a
concentration in ceramics, three dimensional
work and mixed media. It also gave her the
confidence to begin to let go of the commercial
art field and move more towards fine art,
sculpting and painting. Lea also began working
and curating in galleries in Vancouver, Delta and White Rock, immersing herself
totally in the art world and observing the styles and techniques of other artists.
Today Lea is
in-between
and adults
painting full time
teaching
children

both group and

volunteers with the South Delta
Artists
Guild,
helping
to
strengthen the art community.”

“A.J. Brown started to explore various arts in 1999,
as a way to overcome personal fears. One of
these was a nightmare she had as a child. This
dream is a parable of her life:
I’m at the bottom of
a well, looking up. I see the Sesame Street
puppets with their mouths opening and closing. I
have a feeling of no way out. I can’t yell for help,
because no one understands my speech. This is
such a feeling of helplessness!
A.J. Brown had a brain injury during birth. This brain injury caused her to become
deaf and to have something that looks like Cerebral Palsy. As a result, she has
difficulty speaking and using sign language coherently
.
A.J. is self taught. She works with acrylics, pencil, charcoal, pen, pastels, felt pen,
collage, scratch art, and her cat. She was also a potter,
writer, poet, actress, dancer, music composer, and
musician. She created, wrote, produced, directed, and
edited a video. In 2004 she wrote and illustrated a book,
titled: My Voice: A Journey of Creativity, Courage and Hope.
This book contains her short stories, poetry and art. She
sometimes mixes these media to create something. Each
piece of her art is unique. She paints slowly and
meticulously for one, and fast and impatient for another.
Each has its own personality: One will have vibrant, wild,
lush colours, and another will have shy, withdrawn, tame,
muted colours. Some are whimsical, and others are serious. Her work shows how
she feels right at the moment of creation. To borrow a quote from her aunt, A.J.s
art has a childlike naiveté and is not contrived. I think it was Picasso who said the
most wondrous art is that done by children - bold, courageous and honest.
With her art and through her images, she can be heard. A.J. believes this is her
way to freedom and spirituality. Most importantly, art is her way out of that well.
She resides in West Vancouver, with her gorgeous cat, Rumbles.”

“I was born in Vancouver and educated and trained locally
save for traveling abroad. I took general drawing courses,
life drawing in Germany and a year of post-grad work in
China.
While working in Europe, I painted the walls of a
preschool. That research using children’s story books
motivated me to train in the arts. Then, a summer job in
Europe following first-year art training brought me face to
face with Toulosse-Lautrec at the British Museum. That
stone lithograph print inspired me to major in printmaking
and specialize in lithography while attending Capilano
College, Emily Carr and Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art.”

“I was born and raised in the home of Disneyland. Since
officially immigrating to Canada in 1973, I have
incorporated the concerns of a painter and sculptor with
those of a potter, concentrating on form, brushwork,
colour, construction, and a cross-cultural examination of
decoration. I use slab-constructed earthenware clay,
painted with clear-glazed coloured slips. My pots have a
"function" that is akin to theatre props - they convey the
idea of a vase but their "role" relates to movement, art
heroes, and colour.
There are enough creation myths involving dirt to make one wonder if maybe
they're true. Enough of my childhood was spent watching cartoons and reading
Alice in Wonderland to conclude that every pot has a personality and is just waiting
for the chance to dance. Time spent making mud pies was enough to impress upon
me that using the whole geology of a planet and the magic of fire just to make a
little pot is as powerful as it gets.”

“I've loved beads since I was a kid, but only started seriously working with them
about seven years ago. My beading interests range from tiny seed beads to semi-
precious stones. Just recently I have started to make my own beads. It will be
years before I consider the glass beads I create good enough to include in my
jewellery, but I will enjoy the process of learning.”

“Born in Germany and raised in the middle east and Asia, Christine developed an
early interest in art as well as an appreciation for the infinite variety of life offered
by nature. She combines her talent with her love of animals to produce art that
resides in corporate collections around the world.
Subjects are depicted from life, the product of hours spent observing, taking notes,
sketching, and photographing in the field. Raising many injured and orphaned
animals has provided first hand knowledge of anatomy and behavioral
characteristics, resulting in accurate, detailed renderings that allow insight into the
day to day lives of her subjects.”

“To see his paintings is to also recognize the man. Each piece of his art is the
result of careful solid planning. His paintings evolve gradually and are based on a
personal emotional appeal and desire to satisfy himself. Like many artists, he is at
home outdoors and occasionally travels to a national park to spend time walking or
canoeing. There he sketches or photographs and his love and feel for the
landscape become obvious. By observing his subjects on location he gets a better
sense of the textures, shifts in light and other intangibles that ultimately affect the
finished work.”

“Wee Lee is an award winning nature artist and his technique combines Western
realism with Oriental brushwork. He came to Canada in 1978 and has resided in
Regina since then. Lee is fascinated by all living creatures in the eco-system and
has traveled North America extensively in pursuit of subjects for his paintings. As
a result, his close-up, intimate paintings of nature capture flora, trees, birds and
fauna of our parks, wilderness refuges and his own backyard.
Wee Lee’s work is part of numerous public and private collections including,
Canadian Museum of Civilization, Saskatchewan Arts Board, Revenue Canada,
IBM Canada, City of Regina, Dofasco Canadian Collection, Ducks Unlimited
Canada, the University of South Dakota and SGI Canada to name a few.”

E. J. Hughes
Artwork: “Logs: Ladysmith Harbour”. 24” by 20”.
Donated by G. Anderson – Courtesy of Creekhouse Gallery. Valued at $80.
“A
true son of British Columbia, Hughes’
stylized realism earned him a unique place in
the history of Canadian art. His 2003 exhibition
included work from the 1930’s to 2000 and
highlighted evocative symbols of life on the
west coast - ferries crossing the Georgia
Straight, picturesque fishing villages and farm
houses, flaming arbutus trees and imposing
coastal mountains.
In 2001 E.J. Hughes received the Order of
Canada and in 2005 he was awarded the Order of British Columbia. His
achievements and rare success are due to his singular approach to representing
Canada with passion and originality. E.J. Hughes lived on Vancouver Island where
he continuously refined his vision of life in the place that has been his inspiration
and home for so long. E. J. Hughes passed away in Duncan in January 2007.”

Bonny Roberts
Five artworks donated by G. Anderson – Courtesy of Creekhouse Gallery.
One artwork donated by John Polnick.
Bonny Roberts has been painting & experimenting in art for as long as she can
remember. With a love of all mediums she has experimented in watercolour,
acrylic, oil, ink and collage. Recently relocated to Keremeos from the Lower
Mainland, she and her husband have built a spacious studio/gallery in her home.
Having been a member of the federation of Canadian Artists for many years,
Bonny has attained her AFCA status and has taught many workshops in BC. With
a number of awards under her belt and paintings sold world-wide, she is currently
exploring the world of colour and is turning more to the abstract for subject matter.
Bonny's goal in every painting, whether abstract of representational, is to create
excitement for the viewer. Other things may fall by the wayside but a piece must
always stir the emotions. Energy and colour are the means by which she tries to
achieve this goal.”

“Canadian artist Dorothy Francis was born and educated in Saskatchewan. The
cold winters of this prairie province gave her an insight into some of the living
conditions of the Canadian north. She later moved to British Columbia where she
began studying at the Vancouver Art School. She is widely known for endearing
works of art which show her unique form of sensitivity and appreciation for grace in
day-to-day life. Her compositions radiate a light-hearted happiness and usually
feature native children. She records the north, past and present, hoping to give us
a glimpse of the Inuit way of life.
Through her acrylics, oils and pastels, Dorothy has earned wide recognition for the
respect and warmth with which she portrays her fellow Canadians. She has
exhibited in many major galleries in Canada and the United States.”

Abraham Apakark Anghik
Artwork:
“Dance of Life and Death”. Limited edition print 274/300, 20” by 26”.
Donated by John Polnick. Valued at $165.
“Abraham Apakark Anghik comes from
Paulatuk, a community
in
Canada’s
Northwest Territories. Born to parents
Bertha and Bill Ruben, he is one of
fifteen
children.
Anghik
shares
his
artistic passion with his brother, noted
artist David Ruben Piqtoukun, and both
artists
have
received
international
recognition for their artistic
achievements. Anghik’s early life was
spent in a nomadic lifestyle, a
background that gave him a permanent
link to the Inuit way of life. He also spent eleven years in a residential school where
the main goal was to assimilate the children and rid them of their Inuit heritage.
While this time resulted in the artist’s loss of his mother tongue, Inuktitut, it also
drove him to search for personal identity and history.
In the artist’s words: “I have chosen to be a storyteller for my people… I need to do
my part in carrying on the stories, myths and spiritual legacy”*. This personal
objective is strongly reflected in Anghik’s work; much of his imagery is based on
stories of ritualistic ceremonies that were told by his grandparents and extended
family.”

Keith Hiscock
Artwork: “Harbour Light”. Limited edition print 624/950, 23” by 29.5”.
Donated by John Polnick. Valued at $165.
“Keith Hiscock was born in Victoria, B.C., and he has been
working as a professional artist for over twenty-five years.
His home in the Pacific Northwest and places to which he
has traveled inform his artistic practice. From earlier
abstractionist explorations to his current forays into magic
realism, this self-taught artist's work is distinctive and
compelling. His punctilious attention to detail and uncanny
ability to create surreal distillations of light and atmosphere
are of a very high order.”

‘An Ojibwa Indian born on the Long Plains
reserve in 1951. Credited as a founding
member of the “Woodlands School” The
term is used to denote the work of artists
from the Ojibwa and the other two closely
related tribes – the Cree and the Odawa.
Ojibwa artist Norval Morrisseau and Odawa
artist Daphne Odjig are the recognized
Elders of the school.
His command of negative space and the
fine flowing elegant lines, reach deep into cultural artistic tradition, seeking
“Spiritual Harmony”.
Guided with a powerful sensitivity to emotions his art is concerned primarily with
spiritual guardianship. Nature in its pure form provides an endless source of
inspiration, yet many of its images are familiar and its appeal immediate and
profound. A self taught artist, he achieved national and international acclaim in his
early youth. Undoubtedly, he is the most collected Indian artist.”

“I am twenty-six and living and working in Vancouver. I have been focusing on
painting as my artistic practice for over ten years, and during that time my work has
gone through many phases. However, generally described it strives to give shape
and visual presence to subconscious processes, archetypes and entities that
reside in the female psyche and play an integral role in a woman's journey of self
realization. The pieces submitted for the Artists for Animals auction represent
various phases of my painting style and thematic interests. Using strong imagery
these works aim to explore the visual field of the canvas with line and colour, while
delivering a powerful impact to the viewer. More of my work can be seen this
weekend at the Drift.”
