Artist from the McMichael Art Show Deborah Jolly will be exhibiting her art in January 2015 at Covernotes in Richmond Hill

DEBORAH JOLLY is a prolific, driven, spirit who applies haphazard puddles of oil or acrylic paint, and massages her very soul into each work, using her finger tips, palette knives, and the occasional brush. “Oils provide me time to be mindful of what must rise to the surface and acrylics assist with growth periods.” Embracing an intentional lack of premeditated shapes combined with innate balance, flow, and mouth-dropping colours, Harob’s works often leave viewer’s asking, “How?” Gratitude for this neophyte’s fresh approach, and bold energy.

Artist from the McMichael Art Show Raya Finkelson will be exhibiting her art in June 2015 at Covernotes in Richmond Hill

Raya is an emerging artist (and a professional IT consultant by trade). Her interest in art can be traced all the way back to her childhood. Art, in all of its various manifestations has fascinated her and has always been her passion and favorite hobby. 8 year ago her creative itch pushed me to start exploring art on a deeper level. She has created an independent body of work; unique 3D paintings that include sculpture elements on canvases, which really bring the pieces to life with a whole new dimension. Creating them is a far more in depth process than traditional paintings, but she truly enjoys bringing her unique pieces of art to life with my one of a kind approach. She is am a member or Richmond Hill Group of Artists.

Lesley Block will be exhibiting her artwork in January 2015

I only realized the artist within after I retired from my full time job as a Registered Nurse. I always had a love for other people’s creativity, but never had time for my own. I was born in South Africa where many people are creative, vibrant and artistic. A country with passion and pain. I immigrated to Canada with my husband and two children when I was 30 years old. My love for colour is well portrayed in my art and in the clothes that I wear. Other than Journey Of The Mind, none of my art has any inner meaning to me. It comes from within and finds itself on the canvas. For the most part I do not visualize what I am going to paint. I wait to see what I have painted. I hope that my art bring’s colour to your life as it has done for mine.

Ada Fung started learning Chinese Brush Painting at age 15. The style she practices is called Lingnan, which can be described as evocative rather than naturalistic. She specializes in portraying animals: birds, horses, buffaloes, pandas, and considers herself successful when she can make them come alive on the rice paper.

Nancy Cheung

Nancy Cheng has loved painting since her childhood. Her love for painting led her to find Chinese Knife oil painting on the internet a year ago. Since then she had made a few visits to Beijing, where she has taken extensive courses in this style of painting.

Kathleen Megna March 2015

Kathleen Megna will be exhibiting her photography at Covernotes Richmond Hill in March 2015

My name is Kathleen Megna, I am owner/photographer for Finger Frame Photography.  I am 31 years old and I live in Schomberg with my wonderful husband and adorable 12 month old son.  I realized several years ago that I see the world differently than most people, I see the world in images. When I received my first digital camera (all 2 megapixels of it) from my mother, it didn’t take me long to realize that capturing one of those “great picture” moments is something I strive for.  The world is full of beauty, and to capture a piece of it is a great feeling. What originally started as a hobby quickly became my calling. I take great pleasure in evoking an emotional response from people that look at my photos. I have been immersed in the world of photography now for several years, and I have never looked back. Discovering new techniques, capturing new images, finding alternative and interesting perspectives is how I spend most of my free time.


Sharon Kirsh June 2015

Sharon Kirsh will be exhibiting her art June 2015

Since childhood, Sharon Kirsh has been an artist, spending hours painting murals on the walls of her family home, but realized in high-school that arts education was not geared towards inspiring creativity, and decided to pursue graduate studies in Training and Organizational Development at The University of Toronto. As a corporate training consultant, Sharon began developing and delivering workshops to help others bring creativity into their corporate work environments. Craving more artistry in her own life, she pursued a degree in Interior Design. Focused on creating spaces that were expressive of home and business owners authentic style, Sharon’s own authentic artistic voice also began emerging, and she decided to follow a life-long passion to paint and began taking courses with artists throughout the GTA and at the Toronto School of Art and Haliburton School of Art.

Artist Statement – Painting in an expressive representational yet somewhat abstract style, incorporating collage and multiple media, my paintings reflect my strong affection for the world around me. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I feel and experience the world with intensity, and it is through painting that I express my sincere emotions and my enchantment and joy with the wonderful gifts of nature. To me, a successful painting is one that elicits positive emotions from the viewer. It is a wonderful challenge to lay down colour, patterns, brushstrokes, and for someone to then be able to share in the emotions that motivated each aspect found on the canvas.


Michelle Richards-Clermont

Michelle Richards-Clermont will be at Covernotes April 2015
Her artistic background includes a General Arts diploma from OCA and 25+ years in the graphic design industry. A self-described “emotional” artist, attracted to contrast and the allusions some experiences make to her personal life, her secluded upbringing on Morrison Lake in the Muskokas habituated comfort in social reclusion. Having recently reconnected with art through teaching and her artwork, she’s embraced the therapeutic and redemptive potential in her artistic expression. Comfortable with engaging in life as an unnoticed social observer, her work portrays her perspective on human interaction. Skilled across multiple mediums, her passions, struggles, and perspectives have been captured with photography, pastel, oil, acrylics, and her personal favourite: sketching. Styles include photorealism, abstracts, and portraiture.
