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 reality.
