Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Tina Concetta Revie has been developing her artistic talent since childhood. Painting has always been a passion throughout the years, but it wasn’t until 2004 that Tina was able to pursue her passion on a full time basis. Her formal training has included the Dundas Valley School of Art where she completed her Certificate Level in 2010.
Much of her inspiration today comes from the rural settings of the Grey Bruce region and her home, which is surrounded by woodlands, wetlands and wildlife. Tina’s paintings are a process of exploration and self-expression, always evolving and taking new directions. Her work is a direct response to the colour, form and beauty in the nature that surrounds her. She paints primarily in acrylic working in a colourful and sometimes whimsical style. Her painting style has been influenced by the Group of Seven and in particular the art of Tom Thomson. Her personal photography plays a part in the content and design of her work when she is not painting from life.

Janet Liesemer was born and raised in Toronto where she studied Interior Design at a local College. After working in the city for many years outside of her field of interest, Janet found herself frustrated by her lack of time and energy for her true passion: art. Her move to Walkerton in 2000 brought her back full circle to art where she began a small business “Paint by Design”, specializing in interior painting and murals.
Basically a self-taught watercolour & acrylic artist, Janet enjoys trying to reflect her personal connection with God and His wonderful creation in her paintings. Her love of travel has contributed to her artwork, from the hiking trails of Vermont, the bright colours and architecture of Mexico to the rolling hills of England. All are a source of inspiration.
Janet currently resides with her husband, in the picturesque village of Ayton, On. Janet participates in local art shows and is a full-time exhibitor at the Southampton Art Gallery. Her work is also displayed and sold at The Spotted Moose in Mount Forest.
