Member Artists: Canada and Greenland


Jane Appleby
Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada

What can you take from the outdoors? The experience. That is why much of my latest work is done outdoors and often on my travels. I live in Burnaby BC, Canada with my family and enjoy the mountains and oceans as well as travels that take me outdoors. Many artist’s work have inspired my art including: Kandinsky, Diebenkorn, the Canadian Group of Seven, Tom Thompson, Emily Carr, Ted Harrison and the professional artists that I have taken workshops from.

I am inspired whenever I have a brush in my hand as it is just an extension of what I see and feel about the place: the landscape as well as my inner spirit. I hope that my art brings a joy to the viewer similar that it was made with.

Guy Cranston
Bloomfield, Ontario, Canada

Being a member of a very diverse and creative family, Guy has been influenced by art and artisans all his life. Guy’s mother Stuart, was a talented artist mentored by Kathleen Morris, a contemporary and associate of Canada’s Group of Seven. His sister Philippa is an accomplished writer and television producer. Guy’s elder brother Toller, is a well known Canadian artist who first wowed the world as an Olympic athlete.

Guy spends as much time as possible outdoors painting “en plein air”. He has traveled and painted throughout the west coast of Canada and the United States, France, Italy, the UK and Wales.

“You can visit the same place a dozen times, but when you paint it “en plein air”, everything changes. One becomes acutely aware of their surroundings. You see things as you have never seen them before. It’s very personal – painting on location develops an emotional bond with the location that lasts a lifetime.”

Sharon Fox Cranston, SCA, PAC
Bloomfield, Ontario, Canada

Art is an undeniable necessity, and intrinsic element that defines my life. From my first Crayola - I was hooked. My early work was illustrative in nature, which enabled me to develop a solid understanding of drawing, sketching and composition. Today my focus is on the design and rhythms of the rural and urban landscape. Preferring to paint with professional soft pastel, I enjoy the saturation of colour and immediacy the medium provides. My work is painted on both canvas panels and sanded paper, with or without a watercolour underpainting. My work is a reflection of my life and travels as I particularly enjoy taking my art outdoors and have painted many of my works “en plein air” in North America and Europe.

I am currently a member of Landscape Artists International, The Federation of Canadian Artists, Pastel Artists Canada, Pastel Society of America and the Society of Canadian Artists. I constantly aspire to capture a moment that will engage the viewer so they may explore their own personal interpretations.

Lorna Dockstader, SFCA, PPC
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

 I was born in Edmonton, Alberta and have resided in Calgary since 1972. After attending the University of Alberta I later enrolled in several workshops with The Federation of Canadian Artists. Following this I studied with Canadian artist Brian Atyeo who taught me how to design strong and unified compositions.

Plein air painting is something I find most rewarding.  Working in a variety of media including oils, pastels, watercolors and acrylics helps to maintain my interest.

I’ve participated in  fifty group exhibitions in the past fifteen years and have had four solo shows in the past four years. Fortunate to be juried into both regional and national exhibitions, I’ve had the opportunity to receive several awards, including The Conte a Paris award and The Pastel Society of Canada’s award of Distinction.  I became a senior signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists in 2002 and was designated Premiere Pastellist of Canada in 2006.

David J. Edwards
Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

David J. Edwards was born in Essex, England in 1944 and emigrated to Canada in 1957, residing first in Toronto and moving to Calgary in 1960. Now residing in Vancouver, British Columbia. Early influences on his style and career included John Constable. This influence may still be seen in his large landscapes of rounded trees and powerful cloudscapes.

Later, the work of the late French minimalist Nicolas De Stael played the most significant role in Edwards' development as a painter. He was profoundly moved by the manner in which De Stael was able to use subtle changes in colour values and textures to shape his paintings rather than relying on detail. Edwards' landscape paintings are abstracted to simple forms relying on texture and tonal variations to create drama.Edwards' paintings hang in corporate and private collections across the world including Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria Whistler as well as collections in Washington D.C., Massachusetts, Wyoming, California and Washington State.

Peter Gough
Glen Haven, Nova Scotia, Canada

Although I grew up in the city, I was a country boy at heart. Now I live where my heart and imagination have always resided and go to the city only to visit museums and galleries and to pick up art supplies. I fish, hunt, canoe and beach-comb. I note the moods of the changing weather and seasons and marvel how a well-beloved landscape can change its appearance from one day to the next, one hour to the next. This is my world and this is what I paint.

As Picasso said, “I don’t search for things, I find them.” I’ve come to realize that I’m not only trying to portray the visual world in my painting, I’m saying something about my spiritual response to the land and its dynamic harmonies, as well.

I believe that every work of art should in some way be a revelation. It should change us in some degree–both viewer and artist.

Perry Haddock
Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

Perry Haddock is a Canadian artist from the south coast of British Columbia, near Vancouver.  His paintings reveal his West Coast roots and his love of the coastal images near his home. Painting primarily in acrylic and watercolour, Perry's impressionistic style is the result of his keen observation of the colours and textures of nature, and his efforts to record his impressions in broad strokes. Many of his paintings are developed from sketches or studies done on site, and his fondest painting experiences are those "en plein air". 

Now retired from a teaching career, Perry has taken the opportunity to add travelling to his agenda, and has discovered new subjects and experiences to add to his palette, ranging from Italian coastal bays to Paris rooftops and Newfoundland meadows.

Perry is a signature  member (AFCA) of the Federation of Canadian Artists and  an active member of the British Columbia Art Teachers' Association. His paintings hang in collections in both Europe and North America.

Michelle Basic Hendry
Muskoka, Ontario, Canada

Michelle Basic Hendry SCA is an award winning artist, working primarily in acrylic. For Michelle, it is the mysteries in the light and shadow of the countryside that nourish her spirit and drive her creative process.

As a child, she loved boat rides past decaying "Muskoka” cottages that, in the 1970’s, still peppered the lakes. Full of animal nests and old bed springs, she could not resist the romance of these derelict ruins and beautiful landscapes that hosted them. The aesthetic of these simple places and the rich details they contained had clicked with her creativity and drove her to paint a series on decaying rural architecture.

Michelle is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and has sat as a founding member on the Board of the Arts Council of Muskoka. Her work is in private collections in Canada, the U.S. and the UK.

Lynne P. Hollingsworth
Dorset, Ontario, Canada

Lynne Hollingsworth grew up in Toronto, Ontario, attending the Ontario College of Art and Design.  She loves to paint moments in time, capturing them forever and evoking a sense of narrative with my rendition, whether dramatic or sublime. When painting the beauty or pathos of nature around her, she paints how it makes her feel.  As she paints a still life, she explores shapes and shadows, relationships and contrasts. A portrait challenges her to evoke the personality behind the visual. 

Lynne would like her work to be a window, a glimpse to be savored, a moment in time that will linger, perhaps bringing with it joy and contemplation.  It is her way of interacting with her world,  making sense of it,  savoring and tasting all that she sees, feels, embraces.

Lynne lives north of Toronto in cottage country, an area of great beauty with her husband Darryl.

Anna Kutishcheva
Oakville, Ontario, Canada

I was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, where I studied art and then worked as a fine artist, illustrator, and graphic designer for several magazines and advertising agencies. After coming to Canada in 1998 I graduated from the Advanced Illustration program, Sheridan College.

I build a frame, stretch and prime the canvas, forget my years of formal training and just sing and fly into elusive word of light, color rainbow and feelings. I work quickly and emotionally; usually finding right place, light, and state takes much longer than painting itself.

It?s impossible to say many things; they seem banal and meaningless put in words. I feel that the ancient way ? through nature: shapes of trees and rocks, shadows and lights - gives an excellent opportunity to express your soul. One day and place it?s cheerful, another - miserable and angry, but is always glorious. Painting is an exquisite joy for me, and I hope to share these feelings with my audience. I?ve participated in many group exhibitions (and won several awards) and had three solo shows in the last two years. I'm elected member of Society of Canadian Artists.

Craig Shanti Mackinnon
Tewkesbury, Quebec, Canada

Craig Shanti Mackinnon, a contemporary landscape painter has been involved with the passion of painting for over twenty years. Shanti’s focus on the landscape arises from his deep reverence and respect for nature. He is particularly attracted to wild uncivilized places- deep forests, mountains and rivers. In his painting he intends to create a strong sense of depth and atmosphere, creating sacred spaces that reflect his own inner quest, places that you want to be, to enter into, explore and disappear.

Although his realistic impressions depict recognizable forms of the landscape, there is a always hint at what is behind the forms, the life and great soul of this beautiful earth. After many travels and adventures, shanti now lives in the Laurentian mountains north of Quebec city .

Margery McBride Elliott
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

The Canadian landscape is all at once beautiful, harsh and ever changing. For Margery, painting is much like hiking in the mountains, uphill and down, with twists and turns, rocks in the path and changing weather. However, once you arrive at your destination, you catch you breath and see something amazing before you. You have arrived at a place where the beauty of the light, leaves, water and rock speaks to you.

Painting the places she has visited is important to Margery, enabling her to capture a moment in time and experience some of the spectacular Canadian landscape. 

Margery attended the University of Calgary and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1995, majoring in painting and photography. Currently she is a founding member of The New 7 Painters Society of Canada.

Bruce Evans Newman  
Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada

Born in Yonkers, New York in 1948, Bruce spent most of his life in professional golf, construction management and real estate development before discovering art. Bruce taught drawing at the University of New Brunswick for three years and currently gives private drawing lessons in his studio and conducts occasional workshops. Most of his time, however, goes to painting, usually en plein air.

"I regard plein air painting as the most demanding and rewarding painting experience because quick decisions and solid drawing skills are necessary to capture the fleeting moments of light and color" Bruce's primary influence has been Richard Schmid and has studied his work thoroughly. Bruce eagerly looks forward to working with Marc Hanson in August, 2010.

Bruce is a juried member of Oil Painters of America, Landscape Artists International, Gallery Connexion, Plein Air Painters of the Bay of Fundy and The Fredericton Arts Alliance.

Jim Pescott
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

“Painting for me is mostly an opportunity for reflection on how all things on this earth are connected. My painting style helps me understand this deeply: dots blend with dots to describe and define shapes with no hard lines as I watch a stone become the air and the air become the stone. This seems how the earth is. My pointillist technique feels so comfortable as I meditate about and work the image. The colours simply amplify my energy as I’m led to explore and discover.”

North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Signature Status – Pastel Society of Canada

I am a pastel artist. I strive to express the essence of a region and interpret my love for nature, especially places I have been like the Okanagan Valley in B.C. and Etretat, France. Since 2000 I have enhanced the awareness of my pastels by entering juried exhibits in USA, France and Poland.

My greatest accomplishment is being accepted by five jurors into the oldest and most International Pastel contest in the world, the 4th International Biennial Pastel Exhibition in Nowy Sacz, Poland, in 2008. All of the Exhibition’s 175 artists were presented in Serbia, Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia and Italy. Only 75 chosen works were exhibited in Krakow and Rotterdam 2009. The plein air pastel painting is of Mayne Island, B.C.

I’ve been seriously thinking about oils and will be painting plein air on linen in  2010.

Sharon E. Steinhaus
Ajax, Ontario, Canada

“Canadian Artist, Sharon E. Steinhaus, works in most media including oil, acrylic, watercolour, pen & ink and pencil. Her current body of work focuses on the local landscape surrounding her home in Durham Region where close proximity to Lake Ontario is an ever present lure. Sharon originally hails from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia where she was an active member of the Cape Breton Artists Assoc.

The thrill of the creative process is always more rewarding than the end result. When the work has come to an end it is always with mixed emotion of triumph and loss. Triumph in the sense that I finished what I set out to do but I consider it a sense of loss that the adventure of this particular painting is now behind me.”
