About Kelly Corbett
Let me introduce myself as a fine art painter and photographer.
Being an artist I enjoy having the ability to reproduce things
as I see them. Recognizing visually appealing light and
composition come naturally to me. My current artistic goal is to
focus on the beauty in the region and province in which I live.
I love the natural splendor of the outdoors and I aspire to
capture a small part of that beauty in my paintings and
photographs. I have been visually inspired by people, places and
architecture but now the natural world in which we live is the
theme that will grace my canvas. I especially want to capture
more of our magnificent local scenery to bring out a sense of
community in my paintings and photography.
About Collette Pereira
I now paint in acrylics, as I find it frees me to be more robust
with my colour and style. As a self taught artist, I have had a
tumbling journey in trying to find my best expression in colour
and light, as these were my primary focus. Since I do not
conform to any style or formula, my paintings begin with a vague
idea of something that has caught my attention. It travels
across my canvas in a confusion of colour and brush strokes . I
keep adding and subtracting till it gives me an image of my
vision. There is a great fulfillment in completing a painting
that pleases me and every day I thank God for making my dream a
