Treats for My Sweetheart

Lynne Bradford

Lynne Bradford has been an artist since she could hold a pencil. She  had to “get a real job” her parents said, so she became a nurse and kept that career for 40 years. Never giving up her passion, she was a closet artist until 2005. Charcoal, pencil, pen and pastels were the mediums of the teenager but graduated to acrylic and oils by age 16. In 1992,  she  started to play with watercolours. In 2005 she soon retired from nursing and became an employee at an art store where she could surround herself with all things art.

Natalie Way

Natalie considers herself a “coast-to-coast” artist, as her influences are from her Canadian experiences – growing up in Newfoundland, then lived and worked in Ontario and settling here in B.C. Natalie has worked creatively within various fields throughout these years, yet the most personal of her creative endeavours has always been in the production of her own visual art. This work has gradually become her principal focus, recognizing the potential for exploration and creation within the vast world labeled “art“. Under the Natalie Way Murals & Art umbrella, she is free to develop concepts that combine her interests and experiences in new ways. Ultimately, the result will be an even broader scope of work. Her paintings are primarily acrylic on canvas or wood panel, although she has expanded her work in mixed media. Natalie also hand paints both internal and external murals, enjoying the collaborative and social process with her clients.

A Peak at Joffre Lakes

Donna Schipfel

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 .
