Bonnie Giesbrecht has been an artist and educator for the last 30 years. She received her art education at the University of Alberta.
Bonnie creates art in a variety of mediums but predominantly use alcohol ink or acrylic paint on a variety of substrates to create representational pieces reflecting her love of flowers, nature and the Canadian landscape. She loves the many and varied colours of the sky and the plants that declare God’s majestic handiwork. Bonnie often uses collage and other mixed media elements to enhance her acrylic paintings. She doesn’t try to represent the objects or landscapes in a literal way but rather attempts to give an impression of mood, texture and colours. Bonnie accepts commissions for her work.

Corla McGillivray classifies herself as a “serial entrepreneur”. Over her career she has owned several businesses all of which encompassed her creative spirit and approach to life. Her art took a back seat to family life as she raised 4 sons and a daughter who have grown up and rewarded her with 12 grandchildren. Life has so many blessings and things to be thankful for. Art came back into Corla’s life in the late 1990’s when she finally had time to pursue her own interests again and it was fundamental in lifting her up and carrying her through a grief period when she lost a son in a car accident. The techniques that she has used are tried and true and have taught her to be mindful of the present moment and to focus on the things that really matter in life.
Recently, Corla has been searching deeply for a way to give service to so many others who find themselves challenged with grief, depression, illness and so many other things that take our “zest” for living away. She uses her art as a backdrop for meditative healing and created a set of books that employ a process she calls Reverse Colouring.
Art is my He’ART’beat and is for lifting up, for sharing, and for communicating with passion and playfulness.
My name is Lorraine MacIntyre. I have been an artist all my life, dabbling in oils, fibre arts, watercolour, and many crafts. Art was my minor in university where I studied in education. I taught grades 2 through 9 and art was always a passion. I began painting abstract art using acrylics when I retired. In the past 15 years mixed media has allowed me to expand my creativity. Colour brings me joy and is reflected ion most of my work. I love having the opportunity to share my art in galleries and shows.
