As an "abstract impressionist", I paint with spontaneity and enjoy expressing my enthusiasm in the moment. I start with color, a hint of an agenda and everything evolves from that point.

LORRAINE GIBSON

Education: Acadia University, Masters degree, Faculty of Management and Education; UBC, Bachelor of Recreation Education

Current exhibitions: Here's The Thing Winery, Solo Exhibit, Oliver, BC 2018-2020 seasons; Burrowing Owl Winery Guest House, 2017-2020 seasons; Bordertown Winery, 2017-2020 seasons; Osoyoos Credit Union, 2019-2020.

In the early stages of my career I worked as an Arts and Camp, Crafts Instructor for the Burnaby Boys and Girls Club; as an assistant at the Burnaby Art Gallery; and then a Recreation Coordinator in Northern BC. After completing my degree and Masters degree I was employed in the health care field for over 15 years in the position of Recreation Manager/Reception Therapist. I have instructed at the college and university level. I have travelled extensively and worked with children onboard cruise ships for five years. After having instructed an Event Management Program in Vancouver I settled in the Southern Okanagan. I am now focusing on my art creativity, and my recent line of ArtWear clothing. I presently work with special needs and love living in wine country. I am inspired by light shadows, and reflections. I use iridescent and interference paints that change depending on the angle and light intensity. Working in the winery field has influenced my paintings and I draw upon the farm life and working vineyards. I have previously worked with watercolor, acrylics, stained glass and other media. I am now focusing on acrylics and resin, incorporating multi-media and utilizing recycled items in order to give them a new purpose. My most recent works have been reproduced onto limited edition clothing items. The clothing is Canadian made manufactured in Montreal. Ask about my masks dresses leggings tops and decor items. I don't take my art too seriously and nor should you! There is humor in some of my pieces. I like to relate to people of all ages. My work is light-hearted at times whimsical, and sometimes multi-purposeful. Try looking at my art from all angles...

DAVE KELLY

I began painting about 14 years ago when my daughter suggested that I do a painting It wasn't very good but I loved the creativity and kept doing it. I'd been away from it for 7 years and I walked through a gallery one day and it sparked something in me and now I'm painting again. I love to get my art work out into the public and I also enjoy meeting other people, like me, to see what they are creating. There is no end to what your mind can put on a canvas. I hope to see my creativity expand from here.

JOCELYN LAMONTAGNE

I was born in Montreal and lived there until 1997 when my husband, Art, and I moved to Calgary. We spent our winters in Osoyoos, BC and now have made Osoyoos our year round home. After retiring in 2007, I was looking for a hobby and joined Artists on Main, formerly known as the Osoyoos Painters and Potters. With the help of fellow members I began to learn this new craft and a love of doing art developed. I took several workshops from artists such as Bonny Roberts, Sandra Albo, and Sharon Leonard as well as learning from art videos and books. People ask me where I get my inspirations. It is very simple really, my inspirations come from life. I remember places we visited, observation of nature, or just plain old day dreams. Trying to put it down on canvas or paper is challenging but that is the reason I keep on painting. The joy of learning and the pleasure of painting every day is rewarding in itself. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy viewing my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.

KATHERINE MacNEILL

After an intense and time-consuming career as a Certified Management Accountant/CPA I, retired with my husband an Siamese cat to our straw bale home on a small acreage in the South Okanagan, joined a local art group in Oliver, in 2015 discovered collage as my preferred medium using waste paper and other recycled materials and completed my first collage that spring. After winning the popular vote at the Oliver Community Art Council Fall Show and Sale in the category of Other Media for two years, in 2017, I submitted a collage (with trepidation), to Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) and was selected finalist then awarded one of three Juror Awards at the closing gala. My images combine big picture perspective and attention to detail that worked so ell during my working life plus a fascination with the variety and complexity of landscapes. I am proud of my First Nation heritage on the northwest coast and feel most grounded on the natural land where our stewardship role is held sacred.
