Brenda Banda Johnson
“With my palette knife, loads of acrylic paint and thick gel mediums I attempt to capture the depth and textures of nature that intrigue me.”
“I love colour and I love expressing movement through my paintings. Each one creates itself on the paper and canvas.”
“My work reflects the value of the moment, the richness of nature, the power of imagery, and the joy of discovering hidden beauty.”
“My style of painting has led me to contemplate the idea that we, and everything around us are made of vibrating particles. ”
“White space, negative space, the in-between.
In art, without the in-between, there would be no recognizable image.
“Each piece is inspired by something different and distinct. I use a wide variety of mixed media to create dramatic paintings full of texture and colour.”
“I am a figurative artist, my paintings are peaceful and relaxing, they tell the glory of the sky and it’s magnificence. I love texture and explore the volume of the material.”
“I am an expressionistic painter, specializing in landscapes. When I paint, it’s like a deep meditation for me, where I shut my brain down, and open my heart.”
“Creating in glass is like embarking on a journey through surrender and patience. It’s enticing 12and beautiful, science and rules. It can be sharp yet irresistible to the touch.”
“I strive to capture the grandeur and wonder of the Canadian Rockies; there are endless combinations of light and colour to explore the mountains.”
“My goal and ambition is to bring beauty and peace into people’s homes through my art, and to offer the life-giving joy of creation to my art students.”
Past Guest Artists – Fall 2023
By using wood as his canvas Gerardo´s art focuses on exploiting the natural beauty of this material and bringing the hues, grains, and textures into balance in the whole composition in a way that is unexpected.
“It was when I let the paint flow and blend that I was truly able to express the joy and freedom I was missing in other forms of art. Pouring helped the composition evolve in a choreography between me, the artist, and the paints. “
Dimitri tries to capture the movement and light in his exploration of various subjects. He is fascinated by the dichotomy of abstract and realism which is evident through his art style.
“My life as an artist has come full circle and I am very grateful to be at this point in my artistic journey”
Past Guest Artists – Spring 2023
“My Inspiration comes from things I am drawn to and feel a connection with. My paintings are designed to evoke emotion, radiate contentment and bring happiness.”
“My paintings on canvas and on scroll cut wood, evoke memories of the terrain in which my generation grew up.”
