Collett, Andrew  (Photographic Canvas/Paper Prints)

Andrew’s goal is to capture a scene in exactly the circumstances when experience tells him it will be suffused with the most intense emotion. He works hard to grasp a fleeting feeling- one which lives for just a brief moment in a masterstroke of light, colour, shape, perspective… and timing.

Andrew loves his work. He considers it a privilege and a responsibility to bring these celebrations of our land into people’s homes. His hope is that his renderings of this country’s natural beauty may inspire dreams and memories, and a particular kind of hopefulness that he felt while walking the trails and pathways of our natural inheritance- Canada.

Every Andrew Collett Fine image is individually printed using the latest in archival techniques and guaranteed to last a lifetime without fading or changing in colour. Each image has been coated with quality art protectant and is certified to withstand exposure to sunlight and humidity variations within a normal household environment.

Grieve, David

David’s inspiration comes from walking along pathways through protected natural areas. Recalling the sense of tranquil beauty David says, “The path itself is like a metaphor for life. It is a journey from beginning to end, with ups and downs and twists along the way. The sun shines brightly through the open spaces in the canopy of trees, while in other areas, long dark shadows are cast across the pathway. One this is certain however, the end of the path opens into an expansive field, akin to Heaven, as our journey of life inevitably comes to an end.”

The landscape paintings often focus on one solitary tree standing alone. His technique of cropping sections allow us to focus more carefully on one area. The use of rich, organic, fall colours represent the maturity of the tree in the cycle of life, providing the observer with a strong sense of change, as the landscape ages and decays. The beauty found in aspects of time and changes is the ever present theme underlying David’s paintings.

Surrounded by trees and fields, David lives in Brantford, Ontario with his wife and sons.

Hoop, Fiona

Professional Artists in their own right, Mary Kennedy and Michele Woodey began working together in the year 2000. They were commissioned to create site-specific installations combining painting, photography and interior design. The successful partnering led to a deeper exploration of collaborative painting: a concept which has its roots in the early Surrealist artists’ techniques of passing a piece of work back and forth. Each artist contributes an element in turn, until the chemistry is complete. The individual elements must blend seamlessly and harmoniously, as in a musical orchestration. Fiona Hoop is a pseudonym for an ever-evolving duet exploring abstract, collage, encaustic, landscape, figurative and still-life. The work is exhibited and sold in New York, Dallas, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Toronto and Vancouver.

Michele Woodey B.A. graduated with honours in Fine Arts from Brighton School of Arts in England 1979.  Michele has held solo exhibits of her work at the prestigious Nexus Gallery in Brighton England, at Erindale College within The University of Toronto, and multiple showings at the Leo Kamen Gallery in Toronto. Selected corporate collections include Xerox Canada, The Art Gallery of Ontario, and the University of Toronto. Her artwork is in private collections spanning cities from London and New York to Barcelona and Toronto.

Mary Kennedy A.O.C.A. graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1989 and received OCAD’s Experimental Arts Award in Painting. Since then she has been the recipient of several Visual Arts Grants from the Ontario Arts Council, as well as from the Sheila Dick Mackay Arts Foundation. Mary’s work may be found in corporate collections at the University of Toronto, Princess Margaret Hospital, Cooper Sandler & West and Sun Life Insurance Canada. International collections reside at KPMG Worldwide, Husky Systems Gmbh, and Voorheis.

Current works are regularly sought after from private collectors in Toronto, Amsterdam and Vancouver.

Robson, Peter (Original Paintings & Signed Prints)

Local artist, deceased.

He was born in London, England but grew up and received his schooling in the seaside town of Margate.  With these formative years in residency on the coast, it is not surprising that his love for water and by extension the countryside, plays such a strong role in his art today.  His talent first showed clearly when, at the age of thirteen he won an art scholarship.  However, he was not allowed to follow up on this opportunity - yet perhaps this circumstance may have worked only to his benefit and increased his desire.  After leaving school and in his late teens his designs were used in mosaic and tile floor designs.  In his twenties, now married and with a growing family, he nevertheless found the time to steadily acquire the all important background for his future life as an artist.  A constant visitor to art galleries and museums, and with the habit of reading upon a wide variety of subjects, he broadened his intellectual perceptions into a solid foundation.  He understood the cultural value of art in our society.
In the mid sixties he and his family immigrated to Canada, and he moved into the more ambitious field of carpet and floor covering design.

Throughout his busy life, whenever an opportunity came he worked at sketching, drawing and learning the art of composition and colour.  He has assiduously studied the works of old masters and great modern art.  Out of these elements has grown a long and abiding respect for nature and view of landscape given only to a few; and a deep and unstilted admiration for the art of the past, accompanied by and intellectual appreciation that comes from an unprejudiced enjoyment of culture.
