Many artists have inspired Jane to explore painting, especially her late father, an architect. Works of Van Gogh, Mondrian, Kandinsky, and Rothko have influenced Jane’s abstract work. Painters of nature that have inspired Jane include Emily Carr, Tom Thompson, Roy Vickers and Gordon Smith.
Jane instructs classes, has been involved in designing several community murals and her work is featured in many fundraising events.

The Charlie Russell Artist
The Charlie Russell Artist - Gary Lowe
As a western history fan, I am very familiar with Charlie Russell’s life and times.
As I reflected on Charlie Russell and his wife Nancy (Mame), my interest was aroused to paint episodes from their lives and especially events in Charlie Russell's life that struck a chord with my own mountain and horse experiences in the northern Rockies. This is something that I could paint with a degree of passion and personal interest.
So here I am at seventy three dedicating art to Charlie Russell and his wife. I especially want to emphasize the importance she played in his career. In my opinion, she is the unsung hero and Charlie Russell would agree with me.

"Helping To Keep The Spirit Strong"

George E. Bates
George E. Bates BC Artist
Although he initially took on the challenge of painting in oils with a pallet knife, for many years George's favorite medium was pen, pencil or marking pen along with watercolour washes. He often yearned for all the training others had received by majoring in art at a University, but knowing that he would never have that opportunity he settled with buying and reading numerous books and taking the occasional evening class, all the while studying particular paintings he liked, plumbing for the secrets they held. Being able to discuss the principles of art with Lucy brought a much deeper understanding and flexibility, although this is still in progress.
Presently retired, George, after some evening classes in the medium of oils, took on the challenge of painting in acrylics. At present his favourite topic is the great outdoors, but he has the goal of returning to the human arena. He is most comfortable painting representational subjects with an impressionistic approach and loves experimenting with various colour schemes and colour theories.

Lucy J. Bates
Lucy J. Bates BC Artist
Lucy works mainly in watercolor and enjoys exploring areas in her current locale as references for her landscapes, compositions of people and flowers.

She has recently taken four years of watercolor classes at the Swinton Art Studio in Calgary and has participated in art shows and sales as a juried member of The Federation of Canadian Artists, The Calgary Artists Society, Interpretations Artists Association and participated at the Leighton Art Center while living in Calgary.

Rick Berg
Rick Berg Alberta Artist

His work is clearly influenced by the special light, landscapes and wildlife found between the prairies and mountains. Long known as a skilled portrayer of wildlife, Rick's more recent work has shown an increasing sensitivity to light and color as subjects in themselves, often expressed in the urban environment of houses, gardens, city parks, and golf courses. His painting have served as covers for sport equipment catalogues, and magazines such as Alberta Hunting and Fishing, and Rural Montana.

"My style is realism, although there's only enough detail I deem is necessary for each painting". "I have spent most of my 30-year watercolour career painting images meant primarily as a respite from everyday life and a pause for positive revision. " Breen has substantial experience in watercolour, oils, pen & ink, Multi-medium installations, illustration and design, and has completed 12 large outdoor Murals both historic and contemporary. In her career, Breen has completed a large portfolio of Fine Art Watercolours and Oil paintings.

Karoll Dalyce Brinton
Karoll Dalyce Brinton Alberta Artist
Alberta artist Karoll Dalyce Brinton has done portraits of people, including children (which are considered by many artists to be impossible to portray those soft, innocent, and lineless features). She has created hundreds of equine, feline, and canine portraits. Her instructor, Margaret Nadeau, wanted her to do anything besides horses. Margaret believed that it would be impossible to have a balanced knowledge of various things if she allowed this young lady to do horses. Thus, Karoll became quite adept at landscapes over the years. Of course it helps that she loves being out in the forests and beside mountain streams. Loading up her horses for a few days and heading to the high country for inspiration and relaxation.

Brian Burness
Alberta Artist Brian Burness
Brian started oil painting on canvas in 1994 with a southwestern flare as a form of relaxation and hobby. Since that time he has focused on more variety and has branched into abstracts using oil and beeswax as a medium. He also continues with his southwestern style.
Brian Burness is a self-taught oil medium artist born and raised in Estevan, Sask. He moved to Alberta in 1972 to work in the oil and gas industry where he is still employed as a marketing consultant for oil service companies in Calgary, Alta.
