Laura Nelson thrives in the beautiful Rocky Mountain town of Fernie BC.,where lifestyle, community, and landscape create a powerful sense of place and provide endless inspiration for this visual artist. Her paintings celebrate the colour, rhythm, and energy of the outdoors, and reveal the intensity of her bond to these natural places. Laura is mostly a self taught artist, starting at an early age with pencil, charcoal, and pastel. She has been exploring with acrylic on canvas since 2003.
Angela Morgan’s work celebrates humanity through the use of colour, pattern and line. Her human figures express the poses of life; the jubilation of dance, the contemplation of parenthood, and the melancholy of summer’s end. Colours fuse and meld to achieve gesture; transforming abstract images into living moments.
Tara Higgins resides in the historic town of Fernie, BC where everyone is strongly intertwined with nature. This connection is reflected in Tara’s work where she draws out the trees from the woods. Through bold brush strokes and a strong sense of colour her paintings are striking impressions of the iconic Canadian Landscape.
