CAITLIN MCDONAGH

She creates intricate illustrative works that are deeply inspired by folklore, storytelling, traditions, architecture as well as various real and un-real sources. She works in a base of acrylagouache paints that lend well to her attention to detail, pattern work, and vibrant colours.

 

LEYA TESS

Leya Tess makes large scale drawings that swim out into the waters of meditation, cyclical movement and eastern duality. She is currently based on Mayne Island and long walks on the beach with her husky runt, Sundance Kid.

 

MEGAN MAJEWSKI

Megan Majewski is a pop surrealist artist who has been featured in prominent galleries around the world.  Over the years, her paintings have graced the walls of Gallery 1988, La luz De Jesus, C.A.V.E. Gallery, and many more.  The dark and beautiful characters in her work evoke human emotions in exquisite surreal detail.  Bringing surrealism and pop culture together creates a dreamlike world that resembles our own. Intricate dreamscapes that blend life with death, and dark mythical characters with a touch of delicate elegance. She paints the odd and beautiful things that come from the dark depths of her mind.

 

MICHELLE WILLIAMS

Raised to learn and cherish the traditions of her Haida roots , she sought to break those boundaries using contemporary practices and  keep intact the respectability and importance of  her roots.
