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.

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.

Anita Dhanjal will be at Covernotes May 2015

As an artist, I envision and create paintings that speak to me about beauty, life, meaning, colors, what is here today, gone tomorrow and was there yesterday. By capturing these thoughts on canvas my passion, energy and creativity are focused on painting unique fine art.

I have been painting for many years and have been learning from great artists to learn new techniques and skills. My once in a life time opportunity to study with an iconic master of fine arts, Toller Cranston has given me a momentum of energy that I will carry with me forever.

My paintings are captivating surrealism and abstract art using oils, acrylic and encaustic mediums. I have a unique and creative style that is very colorful, vibrant and eye catching. I have a starting point but never know where the last brush stroke will take me to complete my painting. This is my journey and then yours will begin at this moment where you will find so much appreciation of the fine arts, the freedom of expression and creativity within oneself.

You will be enjoying the beauty of art that is the passion, energy and creativity that I deliver to you.

Raine Davis will be at Covernotes May 2015

“Inspired by everything around me and every twist and turn in my life, my journey with Art began as a child in my native England.

In 1985 I gained a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art and have since pursued a career as a freelance Artist/teacher.

Using paint and mixed media collage as my ultimate response to the beauty and questions that abound, my paintings evolve through expression of colour, texture, spontaneity and intuition.

Even after over 40 years of pursuing my quest for creative expression, I continue to be in a place of wonder,discovery, adventure and anticipation each time I paint.

As an Art teacher of expressionism I endeavour to encourage and support others in the discovery and ‘unearthing’ of their own unique Creativity.

Mary Fawcette/Doucette will be at Covernotes May 2015

I am a passionate Painter…

Painting gives me so much joy as i open and allow the unknown to show itself it takes me to another place where everything falls away and it is just me and my canvas.

Mixed Media is a great way for me to express without limitations…

With the inspiration and positive reinforcement i receive from my teacher Raine Davis I will continue to stay open to all possibilities and keep creating for the love of art…..Mary Doucette ‘unearthing’ of their own unique Creativity.

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.

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.

Mahtab Abdollahi from the McMichael Art Sale will be exhibiting her art at Covernotes Richmond Hill in July 2015

Mahtab Abdollahi strives to explore her creativity, to experience the outer limits and push the boundaries of her artistic journey. As an artist who desires to excel in her craft, Mahtab uses a variety of mediums to express herself and achieve the right texture and feel in her work. The canvas is her playground where she embraces the joy of creative process, where she delights in happy accidents and other unplanned surprises.Her artworks represent’s a passion and excitement that she has cherished and nourished, and arise from the many memories of the experience of life itself.
