Artist Demos

Maria Josenhans – As she paints, she sets out to decipher and reconcile the intangible elements of nature before her; the elements that make a moment both fleeting and enduring. Painting in oils out on location and being a part of the environment is an invaluable part of the process when she returns to her studio to create larger works. www.mariajosenhans.com

Eileen Fong – Her painting style is derived from the unique Chinese Brush Painting techniques. Her love of nature coincides with the beautiful expressions of this art form.  www.eileenfong.com

Gary Eder – An avid painter his whole life, Gary combines his own photography for references to paint acrylic landscapes, harbours and boat paintings. He belongs to a number of Artist groups and has exhibited in numerous juried shows.

James Elton – James loves painting.  He has been painting and drawing his whole life and has worked in all disciplines of the arts.  He belongs to a number of Artist groups and has exhibited in numerous juried shows.

John Winkler – For over forty years John has been creating functional and unique pottery called Cosmic Clay. He carefully responds to the preparation, centering, pulling, and trimming of the clay.  His sensitivity to this medium is a deep sense of balance, motion and concious focus, resulting in a form of meditation.
