Julie Glaude creates her art with the same
free spirit she approaches all aspects of her life. Photography is her
first passion, and she says she's inspired by Karsh and his painting
with light. She also enjoys painting with watercolor and acrylic,
printmaking, sculpting and creating montages and collages. Julie wishes
to further her education, focusing on photography.

AJ hails from a rural area in Northern
Ontario and moved to Sudbury during the 90's. She has always had a
passion for fine arts and currently pursues that love in the Fine Arts
and Crafts program at Cambrian College, where she studies sculpting,
weaving, and printmaking. Two of her pieces have been shown at the Art
Gallery of Sudbury, The Big Nickel at Science North and Minnow
Lake Millennium Fountain.
Leah's art reflects her interest in the
exploration of colour and texture. Acrylic painting, sculpting, and
printmaking are her mediums of choice. She also enjoys creating original
designs in clothing and costumes, and likes belly dancing. After
graduation, Leah plans on furthering her schooling in Fashion Design.
She says she will take all that she has learned in the Fine Arts program
and apply it to the fashion world.
Angelle says of herself, "I'm one of the
darkest people you'll ever meet", perhaps in regard to the live action
role playing game Amtgard that she plays. She says that "Art is a powerful tool in the
world, you can say many things with a painting or nothing at all, but it
will attract and get people's attention." Her favorite mediums are oil
paints, acrylics, watercolour, charcoal, and pencil. She says she gets
many ideas for her work in her dreams.
Joyce believes the word "artist" could be
used as a verb. Being an artist is a lifestyle. An accumulation of life
long learning and personal growth, combined with the addition of a formal
art education at a post secondary level, perhaps explains why a large
percentage of her art work is biographical. Creating art brings her
complete personal fulfillment. Her excitement to "make something" can be
found in her mixed media, found objects, and sculpture. Portraits in watercolour and acrylics seem to be reoccurring theme. She has
participated in several local fundraising events for the GNO and her
paper mache "Norman" was accepted in the juried 2003 La Cloche Art Show
in Whitefish Falls.
