Maureen Woolley

Biography: 

I have lived in Alberta for most of my life and have always had an interest in art. In 1986 I took a watercolor class through continuing education and I was hooked!  After early retirement from teaching, I have been able to spend many hours painting.  Alberta's diverse landscape and the interplay of color and light through all the seasons continues to fascinate me.  I hope to inspire a memory to viewers with my paintings - whether it is a rural scene or a cityscape.  I currently work with both fluid acrylic and watercolor in an effort to show the play of light on a variety of subjects ....some real, but many are just my imaginings.

 

I was an active member of the ASSC (Sherwood Park) from 1989 - 1994. Since 2011, I have been a member of the Edmonton Art Club. For the past 3 years I have taken part in group painting with the Ottewell Neighbours group.  In addition to hosting a semi-annual homeshow, I have been part of group shows with the Edmonton Art Club at various venues throughout Edmonton. For the most part my artwork is in private collections throughout Alberta and southern Ontario.

Betty Dean

Biography: 

While completing my Bachelor of Education at the University of Alberta, I majored in fine arts and loved the time spent in the studio. After many years focusing on my career, I have returned to painting and print making. My work is influenced by the Group of Seven, particularly the landscapes of Varley and Thomson, by Emily Carr and Walter Phillips, Georgia O’Keeffe, and countless local artists. I have always loved the Impressionists, particularly Monet and Cezanne, and the remarkable ways light permeates their work. 

I have studied at the Banff Centre, with several local artists, with Linda Kemp, Gordon MacKenzie and Karlyn Holman. I am a member of the Edmonton Art Club and the Visual Arts Studio Association of St. Albert. 

I have always been awed by the beauty of nature, and have been absorbed by the challenges of capturing that beauty in water color, acrylic or mixed media.

Helen Davies

Biography: 

Born and educated in Australia,, I came to Edmonton in 1966  and taught in the Edmonton School District for a total of 30 years.  In 2003 I began painting - an extension of my primary interests in geology, geography and native plants. My instant enthusiasm for watercolour painting soon replaced other interests. I found some training in the U of A Extension Department,  in artists' workshops ( Linda Kemp, Gordon MacKenzie, Graham Flatt, Vern Busby, Karlyn Holman) and in the Edmonton Art Club.Then there were countless hours spent viewing Fine Art on the internet. Contact with the environment on the unbroken land of my recreational property  energizes by painting activities.

The seasonal colour changes and the patterns of light and shadow in rural Alberta fascinate me.  The combinations and gradations of colour and the many textures possible in watercolour painting provide an endless study. I start with many photographs of plants and ground  covers  on my property in the Ukalta Sand Dunes ( County of Laamont) and along the various routes  from Edmonton to this property. I am moving from representational paintings to more abstract ones in order to highlight particular elements of the Prairie Woodland. I want to add my mental " warp" to what I see, sometimes by adding more patterns,  by exaggeration or by adding something from my imagination.

Some of my work can be viewed in the artists' gallery of the Edmonton Art Club website - www.edmontonartclub.com
