The Art in Action Burlington Studio Tour will be showcasing local art in the Burlington Artists Tent Tour this September 25 – 26, 10 – 5pm.
Custom handmade furniture using local and ethically harvested hardwoods. I work closely with the client to bring their vision into the finished piece.
Renata Bradshaw is a landscape artist based out of Burlington, Ontario. Renata works primarily in pastel, enjoying the rich colour and luscious texture of the medium.
Landscape painter and environmentalist, focused on advocacy for environmental awareness, protection and education, to inspire others to see the importance of nature as well.
Lori Burke draws much of her inspiration for her work from her inner voice and the pull of the human connection.
Sarah Carlson’s multidisciplinary practice spans painting, murals, sculpture, video and installation. Her work is an expression of experiences within the natural world.
I continuously circle back to the beauty and authenticity of intuitive and abstract expressionist art – not focusing on what I see, but on how I feel – how feelings and energy can be interpreted in shape, texture, colour and line.
As a jewelry artist I take great pleasure in creating one of a kind, beautiful, sensual pieces of wearable art.
I try to capture everyday beauty with a brush and some paint and a bit of imagination.
Paintings that celebrate natural and cultural heritage: honouring intrinsic value through expressionistic representation of beauty, mood, impact, and shared experience.
As an artist I strive to let my heart and my soul be my guide. As a stroke is put down on a canvas I watch as a story progresses as the layers build and I seek direction for the next stroke and the next.
I create abstract works of art that bring people joy! Inspired by nature and led by love, each bright and bold piece is infused with my breath and soul, creating an authentic energy that will brighten any space. Every organic composition is unique; ablaze with light, radiant colour and a life of its own.
Janet Horne Cozens
My art is evolving on a daily basis through exploration of medium and technique. I refer to my images as “interpretations” of objects and people, rather than representations.
Nancy’s work centers around femininity. She is known best for her colourful abstract floral arrangements, but also enjoys painting landscapes. The main focus of her work is to communicate her heart with a lighthearted playful attitude.
Deborah is an award winning member of the Portrait Society of Canada. She has spent her life painting commissioned portraits across Canada.
The many waterfalls, grand pine forests, silhouetted islands, and voluminous skies she encounters on the Bruce Trail and in cottage country are her inspiration. Her belief in the interconnectivity of all nature led to the unique labyrinth style she now uses. Victoria earned her honours BFA from York University after studying under Robert Bateman in high school.
Barbara Reade is a mixed media abstract artist who uses a variety of materials to layer and build history on the surface of each painting. Most pieces contain a mix of acrylic paint, wax pastels, graphite, collage ephemera, monotypes, painted papers, image transfers, and most recently, vintage papers from old books and periodicals.
I have been painting only using Pastels for a few years because of the richness and variety of colours available; layering of colours possible and applying white at any time, makes using Pastels addictive. I take many photos not to copy but to use parts to create different paintings.
