“I am mostly self taught, but enjoy taking workshops with other artists to learn and continue growing as an artist and teacher. This past year, my paintings incorporated watercolours with water-soluble pens, batik and using rice paper in replacement of watercolour paper. This new approach allowed me to grow as an artist and discover new ways to display my art. My Hanover Art Studio provides a great atmosphere to teach workshops.
My paintings are on exhibit and sale in local business establishments in the Hanover and Walkerton area. Private commissions always welcome!”
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.
David Robertson has been in the artistic blacksmithing business since 1987. After more than 25 years at the forge David has developed a style that draws heavily on nature for his inspiration. He often incorporates flowers, leaves and branches in his art work.
His work has been shown in galleries in Canada and USA and he has pieces in private collections as far away as Germany and Ireland.
He currently consults with his clients on custom work that uses both traditional blacksmithing skills and modern techniques. Custom work may include furniture, small gates, wall art and sculptures, as well as home accents.
A style that balances between the abstract and the representational world of art, award winning artist Susan Seitz shares her love for painting on canvas – creations that are both visually rich in texture and colour.
Susan hosts Art Camps and Creative Workshops for children and Empowering Workshops for adults at her home studio in Bruce County. She is a fulltime Member of Elizabeth’s Art Gallery in Goderich, Ontario and the Southampton Art Gallery in Southampton, Ontario. Susan will be instructing Art Classes at the Southampton Art School this summer for children and adults. Susan is a member of a number of art groups and contemplates her next painting with joyful anticipation.
Susan Seitz Studio is located on a 1.5 acre property formerly known as the 1903 Narva School House. A recently renovated wood shed brings light to an old space where Susan can paint to her heart’s content!
