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.
Ancient Civilizations, Art & Mythology and living by Luther Marsh,
are some of the inspiring Muses for Donna’s creative expression.
Each painting or piece of sculpture has a story to tell, touching the
soul & reflecting her passionate reverence for all life.

Works by Julie VanAlstine
can only be described as fearsome,
fantastic and strangely fun. The mysterious worlds of the subconscious
surface in her works, introducing you to imagery familiar and yet totally
unique, disturbing at times and yet compellingly beautiful.
Julie works mostly in mixed mediums, but specializes in pen and
ink, acrylic and ball point pen. An art experience not to be missed.

Vera lives in Amaranth, Ontario, and expresses her talents in

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.
