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.

Maurade Baynton
Maurade Baynton Canadian Artist
Canadian artist Maurade Baynton uses distinct use of light, soft edges, combined with capturing a mood, an emotion, or a moment in time are some of the qualities that distinguish the art of this Canadian artist. Canadian artist Maurade Baynton uses her artistic energy on animals and people interacting, she tells a story through her own personal experiences with her art subjects. Originating from mutual fascination, the first encounter between child and animal often leads to shared friendship and trust. Canadian artist Maurade Baynton paints animal portraits as well as children portraits. Maurade Baynton takes commissions for her artwork. "My passion is to continue portraying that unique bond that children have with the animal world. My goal is to capture that fleeting moment of innocence before they grow into adulthood."

Breen Bergstrome
Breen Bergstrome BC Artist
Breen's subjects have included indigenous peoples and wildlife, pets, and nature studies. She paints both her own muse and is also open to commission. "My style is realism, although there's only enough detail I deem is necessary for each painting".

" 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.

Judy Blake
Judy Blake BC Artist
Judy has recently discovered that the intricate detail in scratchboard art appeals to her, as well as the rich colour of acrylic. Hence, scratchboard and acrylic art are the mediums through which Judy now chooses to exhibit her love of western and wildlife themes. A self-taught artist in scratchboard art and acrylics, Judy finds that the "western" way of life appeals to her artistan's thirst for capturing in scratchboard art and acrylic a sense of hard work and fierce determination. The dramatist in Judy finds fulfillment in the starkness and simplicity of scratchboard and acrylic paintings; a medium which vividly portrays the intensity in wildlife, and the inherent adventure in western motifs. Whether it be the challenge of capturing the wild expression in a cougar's eyes, or the loving gaze of a beloved pet; or revealing the pride in the face of a cowboy, Judy finds joy and fulfillment in bringing these emotions to life.

Alicia Charlton
Alicia Charlton Stone Carvings
"I love the concept of taking an inanimate object and uncovering this life and movement that defies its exterior, releasing the potential of the space within."

In each piece I strive to convey three motions, not just moments.
We tend to view pieces of art, and especially carvings as one precise moment, frozen in time.
But what brought that exact moment to pass and what will the anticipated result be??

The subjects of my pieces have a history that brought them to this moment in time and will continue past it. So does the stone I use. It, in itself, has a life that continues beyond my work.

Irene Clarke
Artist Irene Clarke
I have a wide variety of interest but always come back to the Paintbrush. My paintings are mostly imaginary unless I am doing a commissioned work. I take a lot of photographs and look for scenes that are silently sitting there wanting someone to discover them. I might start my painting from something in a photograph or an idea but from there on the painting creates itself. You may, find a wild animal roaming about in my paintings.
I really enjoy creating my own scenes from my imagination, allowing me to modify my painting as I desire as opposed to painting from a picture. This lateral shift has further sparked my creativity and I hope to create more imaginary scenes and expand my skill with animals.

Delores Davie
Delores Davie Canadian Artist
When I first started to paint I greatly admired paintings by Robert McVitty a marine artist, personally knowing him and being raised on the water front influenced me a lot here, but the artists that influenced me the most were Robert Bateman and Carl Brenders. I have done commission work and have had a lot of "showings", but the more I painted the deeper emotions inside of me led me to follow my heart and to paint mainly Portraits and Wildlife. I like to paint realism, the feelings that I have for nature and people comes out in the detailed work that I do. Nature is intended to be natural and beautiful so I try to capture them in my art works, to make them as realistic as I can.

Eileen Dotzler
Eileen Dotzler Alberta Wildlife Artist
I usually work in acrylics on canvas, but have recently discovered Fresco (painting done on plaster) .The technique is Fresco "Secco" or dry Fresco ,like Leonardo Da Vinci used on the" Last Supper". All fresco can be hung as they are or mounted on a frame (please inquire ,a handmade frame is available on request). I find the Fresco to add greater depth and transparency to the acrylics ,I also like the surface flaws which add character to the work, giving it that just pulled off the wall feeling. I am inspired by light and the play of light on subjects. I usually paint animals and nature but occasionally, paint people and do pencil drawings of pets.

Jack Grundle
Jack Grundle Canadian Artist
Canadian Artist Jack Grundle, "After art school, I spent time as an artist for the B.C. Electric Company, then some free-lance time as a commercial artist, then eventually wound up as art director and creative director at the Vancouver office of Canada's largest advertising agency. I finally tired of the commercial end, and started up a wildlife magazine. For some years, as well as being the publisher and editor, I made time to do cover paintings and story illustrations. I thoroughly enjoyed this period. Now the things I had been avidly learning in the past few years became a way of making a living, and I began painting and selling original wildlife studies. During this time I created about 30 paintings each year and sold virtually all of them. This was achieved through one-man shows, commissions, and even walk-ins. I also sold paintings to various corporations and the B.C. Government."
