Gil Menzies
Calgary Alberta Wildlife Pencil Artist Gil Menzies
Gil draws 'Truly Canadian Wildlife Art'! Gil was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta.
One of the gifts his father gave him was an appreciation and a love for the outdoors. He enjoys nature and draws his inspiration from the wilderness areas of Alberta and British Columbia. Gil tries to follow nature's laws and to capture the true essence of his subjects through the medium of pencil. He hopes to share with the viewer the splendour of the natural setting with detail and realism.
Gil creates Original Pencil drawings of wildlife art, as well, has limited and open end edition prints available.

Jackie Miller
Paintings by Saskatoon Artist Jackie Miller
My motivation and inspiration come from the movement and colours of my environment. My paintings are a suggestion of what I encounter daily their interpretation is subject to what you feel.

I paint a number of subjects, from fruits to abstract, infusing vivid color into each image, bringing new life to old topics. The common thread is that each holds and shares a distinctive attitude and presence. From whimsical cityscapes with rhythmic patterns to lose simple images where the paint and it's texture define the painting.

Using distinctive, strong and vivid colors, the artist invites you into her images in hopes that it will evoke emotion and interaction.

Glen Munholland
Calgary Artist - Glen Munholland
Glen grew up in Southwestern Ontario but has called Calgary home for the last thirty-odd years. He says he has enjoyed drawing still life for as long as he can remember. "The challenge for me" says Glen, " is to use a single hardness of graphite while trying to maintain fidelity to the original "color" image I have in my mind, with an objective towards having the viewer see that same "color" image in the black and white print".

Glen is compiling a set of art, The "Canadiana Series". These limited edition prints will observe different images from each of the Canadian Provinces and Territories. Four drawings are now completed of the eventual twelve that will make up this collection!

Janet Nash
Janet Nash Pen and Ink Artist
Janet Nash has been drawing with pen and ink for over 25 years.
During a drawing class she taught, Janet set up a still life of the items a hockey players uses for a pick up game, or 'shinny', on the closest piece of ice. No one chose to draw this arrangement so when it came time to take it down, Janet decided to sketch it herself.
In the following months she received requests to do similar sketches using sweaters from the NHL Teams, thus, the series was born and her hope is that they will bring back memories to players and fans alike.

Jackie Parkinson

He has become a household name in the western working horse world. Major passed away in 1997 and this drawing was done to honor him."

Dee Poisson
Dee Poisson Canadian Artist
Dee's abiding love for dogs stems from her childhood memories of growing up on a cattle ranch near Drumheller, Alberta. The dog was a part of the every day routine of cattle work but at the end of the day the dog was a part of the family. Dee remembers many childhood activities that included the ranch German Shepherd, Smokey. On many occasions, Dee would find herself on the front porch running her small hand over the face of her dog, an act that would prove to be invaluable when she became a dog portrait artist later in life.

Stephen Seguin
Stephen Seguin - Canadian Artist
Stephen James S'guin, born 1986 in Etobicoke, Canada.
"I started off in 'story time,' some sort of preschool in which I could draw and paint all I wanted while people would read me stories. This was important for me as I developed an interest in drawing. Soon after, at the age of four, I attended my first year of kindergarten in which I continued in my interests, I would gain confidence as other classmates would praise my accomplishments; the first to successfully write my own name. By senior kindergarten, I was able to draw decipherable pictures.
I intend to attend an arts college someday to gain some official credit of an artist's background and perhaps take up a career in my interest. But for now, I'll just concentrate on finishing high school."

Lorne Sieben
Saskatchewan Pencil Artist Lorne Sieben
"My drawing came by the way of custom knife making. In an effort to beautify my blades I looked to engraving. Drawing designs for engraving slowly introduced me to larger scaled drawing.
Fascination of the beauty and diversity in nature were always one of my top interests. I tend to lean toward wildlife art, but I will be diverse in my art in the future."

LUBOŠ ŠMEJKAL
LUBOŠ ŠMEJKAL ONTARIO ARTIST

"All of my inked drawings, whether colour or black and white, are executed with ball point pen. There are no corrections, whiteouts or erasures on any of the drawing. The Potted Bush, Boat, Tree and King Salmon have been executed on the spot, with zero preparation or study. Basically, they all originated from an arbitrary line that I drew on a blank page, and then I developed the picture from there. That is how I get most of my ideas: I draw a line, and then go from there. Every mark on the paper that is made thereafter relates to the original mark and other marks, and the image then starts to take shape."

Mr. Šmejkal spent most of his life in British Columbia, being inspired by the beautiful West Coast. He spent many years in Chilliwack, enjoying the scenic vistas including Mount Cheam and the Vedder River.

His artwork is available at Crystal Gallery, North Vancouver, BC, 604.986.8224, or through his agent, Marcela Montgomery at arborlynn@hotmail.com
