Micheline Meszaros

As a budding gardener and a growing artist, Micheline is inspired by trees and the natural environment as subjects for her landscape paintings. She is happy to be living on Bowen Island where the great outdoors always waits. Forests and trees are the primary focus of her work and provide great shape, texture and colour. Micheline hopes to share her love of plants and trees through these scenes from her walks in the woods and trails of Bowen Island.

Mixed Media,

Anne Boa

 After 40 years working for others, in both Television Broadcasting and then Interior Design and Residential Construction, Anne is thrilled to return to her first love- Fine Arts.  Her Expressionistic work has gravitated to watercolour and mixed media- for now. The subject will always be there, whether it’s in landscapes or figurative pieces.

Carol McNaughton

 

Drawing and painting were pass times I seriously enjoyed as a child.  After graduating from high school, I spent a year at the art college in Calgary.  The reality of making a living interrupted my studies and over the years I was involved in jobs unrelated to art.  Eventually my partner and I owned a prepress company, supplying designers, ad agencies, publishers and printers. 

My favourite subjects are people and animals.  Living on Bowen has given me a lot of reference, and I love its scenic beauty.   I learn with every painting, and at every opportunity. carolmcnaughton@shaw.ca 




"Ethereal", Oil pastel on salvaged wood plank, 9" x 22"

Rebecca Fairbairn

 Wood and water, sea and surf: these are the mainstays of my work. I paint on wood, some reclaimed from junk piles, some are exhibition wood panels, but all are chosen for the beauty of the grain. My painting begins with the wood itself, sanded and varnished, then the image is chosen depending on the grain. Wood stains and urethane are my mediums, and oil paint is added if needed for extra effect. I live on the water... and boats have always played a large part in my life.  My work is the accumulation of these passions.

Peter McLean

With fine woodworking as his trade and music as his profession, Peter put the two together based on the doorharp he was gifted with 40 years ago.  In his home workshop he chose Sapele (an African mahogany), Cherry and Black Walnut as the materials to make these delightful things. The doorharp he was given has always made its presence known from where it resides on the bathroom door - a frequently used portal - that unfailingly announces human activity whether someone is coming or going.  It issues forth a rather appropriate tinkling sound.

Priced from $90 to $130 CAD
