Leah Mitchell ~ Quilter
Leah Mitchell ~ Quilter

Leah has been quilting since 1994. She is essentially self-taught and enjoys the challenge of designing, piecing and quilting small decorative and functional items for the home. Her designs are inspired by traditional patterns that are in the public domain. Her quilted pieces are designed to be useful so she prefers to work with 100% cotton which can be washed and dried by machine. She does machine-piecing and hand-appliqué and does both hand and machine quilting depending on the function of the piece. She is known for her colour choices, appealing designs and attention to detail in the finished work.

Margaret Oorebeek - Painter

Margaret Oorebeek

I love to paint the surrounding landscapes of Dufferin County and Ontario with oil paint. I love the texture and movement of this medium. I enjoy the rural life which is also expressed in my paintings. As I grow as an artist I continue to develop my yearning for colour and depth, contrasts of light and shadow. I have worked on a number of commissions and enjoy taking on that challenge. So feel free to call me.

Through the years I have always sought ways to express my need to create through drawing, handwork and graphic design while raising four children with my husband Jan. Now, I am answering a life-long call to paint and am exploring the expressiveness of my art. I continue to learn with every painting and have also enjoyed experiencing the gifts and skill of fellow artists as I grow and develop with them.

Nwllie Montgomery - Daffodill

Nellie Montgomery

I started painting in 1987, when Folk art was all the rage..I took some classes then I started to teach…I did this until 1993. Life became very busy and I was not able to paint for many years. But I could not stay away from it, so in order to learn other techniques I would order DVD’s to learn from, I have also taken some classes with other painters, such as Peter John Reid and Michelle van Murick..…I do not have a formal art degree. Photography is also a real passion. I love colour, nature, birds, landscape and old buildings.
