Debora has always shown a passion for the arts. From a family of European artists, she has been surrounded by the masterpieces of many relatives – including her great grandfather Otto Geismer – a renowned European painter of the Impressionists period.

Debora's work invokes warmth and movement. Her use of colour and understanding of lights and darks create balance and harmony. “I’ve always loved using colour to create a mood.” She has had various private and corporate commissions, including a triptych featuring her “red birch” series for the Toronto Cricket, Skating & Curling Club.

She is on the board of directors for the North Toronto Group of Artists (NTGA). This is the third year she will be participating in the Georgina Studio Tour.

Having retired from teaching, Piri was looking for a new creative outlet. 
After making the rounds of the Studio Tour 3 years ago, she was inspired to paint.  Her friend and artist, Linda Hobson, encouraged her to take up painting, and Piri started to take lessons from her.
Piri likes to paint a variety of subjects – generally using lots of colour and interpreting her subjects in her own unique way.  Despite her relatively late start, Piri has developed a loyal following and had some several commissions.  She won a honourable mention for one of her paintings at her first showing at the Georgina Art Gallery.

Penny's inspiration stems from her father's love of photography and film. From a young age, Penny watched her father behind the lens taking pictures of everything from life events to architecture, and knew she wanted the same experience for herself.

Through her love of nature, she has been drawn to landscapes, sunsets, and the challenge of photographing lightening and birds. Her eye is also drawn to old structures and vehicles, where she loves to find detail that may normally go unnoticed. 
Penny is exploring new mediums including stretched canvas and images on metal to add other textures to her prints. Her growth in photography is constant.

Tim is a third generation woodcarver; he started as a young teenager wanting to spend more time with his father. As he grew older his passion for all things natural brought him back to this art form. He enjoys creating fully textured bird carvings in which each feather is drawn and carved individually then painted. He also enjoys creating smoothies, which relay only on paint to create the depth and softness of each bird’s feathers.

Tim creates both life size and miniature versions of the songbirds, birds of prey, shorebirds, and waterfowl that he enjoys watching in the wild. He continues to use his art to express and share his love of nature with others.

His work continues to grow and develop as he explores new techniques, tools, and acquires additional knowledge through wildlife study and time spent learning from his father and his peers.

Laurie is an artist whose media is the traditional form of 'cold' stained glass, both copper foil and leaded, with a little mosaic work for added interest! Laurie learned her craft at Thornhill’s Glowing Panes Studio and fell in love with the art.

“It is a curious dichotomy – a juxtaposition of the creative and the technical”, explains Laurie.  Laurie’s typical pieces reflect her love of nature, but occasionally she will branch out to something more abstract. She works in various genres but her style is all her own. Laurie designs and produces her creations, which include lampshades, windows and panels, garden stepping stones, and three dimensional decorative items. She accepts and enjoys commission work: “It is a challenge to give your client exactly what they want and at the same time to satisfy your own creativity.”

As a self-taught artist, Monty’s paintings directly respond to the surrounding environment as a starting point, often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. His works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By applying abstraction, he tries to focus on the activity of presenting. His works are presented with the aim not to provide an idealistic view but to identify where light and the environment are important. The energy of a place and its emotional and spiritual vibrations are always important. His work as evolved over the years but is goal is to keep on learning new techniques and skills and have fun along the journey.

“ A craftsman becomes an artist when she/he starts innovating. The experiments blur the edges between craft and art, who can say if that is a pot or a sculpture” – From: Crafty Artist Exhibits: Frank Ross

Barbara Banfield came to clay after twenty years in the garment industry. A lifetime of working with her hands, found her at Sheridan College graduating in 2010. Barbara is fascinated by the endless possibilities and process that working with clay demands.

Her most recent body of work is a response to the study of non-objective abstract painting. Abstract painting abandons attempts to represent the world in identifiable ways. It expresses not so much a retreat from reality but rather a different kind of relationship with reality. It uses a sense of balance, materials and in particular texture, creating imagery without always providing an obvious point of visual reference.

While creating pieces that are useful to every day life, my intention is to bring the user closer, observing the hand made object. Combining form,
texture and dynamic glazes she strives to find a sense of harmony and
beauty.

The Square

Elaine Oswald is a potter and jewelry artist that lives by the beautiful shores of Lake Simcoe with her husband Bob and gal pal dogs, Ruby and Shadow. She is best known for her luscious, rich glazes on functional pottery and her elegant, yet fun, jewelry pieces.

Over the last 30 years, Elaine’s love of throwing and molding clay has constantly evolved as she discovers new medium and techniques. One of her signature techniques is the rich metallic sheen that is produced by the ancient Japanese art of Raku firing. In the summer months you can find Elaine and Bob outdoors firing Raku pots.

She happily combined her work with clay and jewelry design when she began working with Art Clay Silver many years ago. In addition, Elaine uses a broad range of materials from semi-precious stones, to Swarovski crystals, to her own handmade chain mail, to create one-of-a-kind jewelry.

Elaine is a devoted champion of art and teacher in the Georgina area. She founded the “Artisans by the Lake” show in 2008. In 2005 she co-chaired The Georgina Studio Tour. Her art has shown at The Georgina Art Center and Gallery in Sutton and she has participated in many studio tours. Elaine teaches pottery and Art Clay Silver upon request. She has taken up a new passion for Fabric Art that involves sculpting with fabric that has been treated with a textile hardener – another exciting new twist on her molding techniques.

Bill Major’s wood placemats, cheese boards, and live edged tables are made in his Live Edged Woodcraft workshop on the southeast side of Lake Simcoe.

Bill uses crosscut slices of wood, sourced from reclaimed wood from local sawmills. His unique approach shows the rings of the trees from which they are cut. He treats his cheese boards with 10 coats of natural hemp seed oil, which makes their natural wood patterns almost leap off their surface. Bill then mixes hemp seed oil with natural bees wax for two more coats to make his cheese boards water-resistant and alive with a beautiful sheen. He finishes his live edged placemats and tables with a hard wax/oil, made from naturally occurring oils and waxes. You are always invited to drop in to catch a flavour of Bill’s passion for live edged wood.

Cheque

The sewing/quilting field has been my reprieve for the past 20+ years. Being a strong advocate of machine quilting, I encourage same artisans to go one step further and gain confidence with finishing their own quilts using their domestic sewing machines. To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.

This past year Jean challenged herself to use more product that was available, and if not, to draw from my past experience and make my own. She loves the opportunity to begin her own projects on a whim, to be allowed to direct her thoughts as she sees fit, and to complete her quilts from my imagination. Freedom is a wonderful device and motivation tool. Art is a line around your thoughts.
