Doris grew up in Denmark until at 13 her family moved to Canada. At 18 she became a hairstylist, just loved it because it was a great creative outlet. She competed and won many awards. After she retired she started to paint with the same passion and dedication that she had applied in her styling career. Her love for contests and challenges has rewarded her again with many art awards. She has become know for her local coastal images, with a local nautical chart in the background. Also known for her bold bright poppies. She loves to explore new ideas and techniques because that is what makes art so exciting one never learns everything. The artist is always growing and evolving.

My paintings on rice paper are semi abstract, creating the image from the essence of the flower rather than what you see. By using the background colours as an inspiration of the flower and by applying many layers of different colours you can begin to see beyond the garden and your imagination takes over. The image is created with white gouache, giving a three dimensional look. This is a technique that I created myself and have had many positive reactions to it. I also teach this technique, as well as acrylic ink on canvas .
For the last 40 years, I have been active as a freelance Artist. Born in India; I developed an interest in art in childhood. After having a successful career in India I emigrated to Canada In 2000. We now make our home in Surrey, BC. I had a solo show “Jarnail Singh –Discovering the Soul of Punjab” at Surrey Art Gallery in 2004. I was featured artist at Harrison Arts Festival 2005 at Harrison Hot Springs. My work was in the exhibitions “From Across the Oceans” at Langley Museum, Punjabi Visions, at Reach Gallery and Museum, Abbotsford, From The Land of Five Rivers, Surrey Art Gallery. I had three shows of Komagatamaru Stories, at Surrey, Abbotsford, and Delta. My works have been in many solo and group shows. My paintings have won many awards and they are in important private and public collections all over the world. In 2008 the City of Surrey conferred on me a lifetime achievement award recognizing me as a Surrey Civic Treasure.

Jim’s Quote “Rather than a photographer, I consider myself as an artist with a camera”
James Lowell Adams was born in Philadelphia in 1943. Son of a talented musician and artist, Jim was exposed to art at an early age. He attended Temple University; he earned his Master’s in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania. In 1970, Jim moved to White Rock where he gained an art instructor position at Douglas College. He retired as Chair of Fine Arts in 2000.
A life-long interest in aviation led him to the successful development of his first show – a flight-oriented exhibition at the Surrey Art Gallery (SAG) in 1979. The biggest exhibition of his career – a two-part retrospective of his life’s work – was shown at SAG and the Reach Museum in Abbotsford in 2017. His work may be found in collections across the world.
As an artist, art historian and advocate for arts and heritage in the Surrey/ White Rock region, Jim was named a Surrey Civic Treasure in 2009.
