ARTIST BIOS

Holly Brown
Holly is an artist and art educator living in London, Ontario. Her work is concerned with exploring and questioning the traditional relationship portrayed between females and nature, bot positive and negative associations. If females are intimately linked with nature, what are the possible outcomes when nature is continually raped and destroyed? Do we nurture it back to health, become hosts for its creatures, or are ultimately destroyed as well?

Art is the extended arm of your imagination, The feast of inspiration for your muse. Art isn’t just creativity, it’s a way of life. — Sarah Curran

A Canadian artist of British, Scottish & Irish descent – was born in 1979 in Simcoe, Ontario, waised in Waterford, and then later on in Tillsonburg.  After a 16 year career in the Child Care field, Sarah moved to London, Ontario, currently living with her cat, Jersey.  Creatively, Sarah started out with a passion towards the written word, expressing herself through computer graphics and webpage design, for which she created all her own pixel images.  In 2008, Sarah developed a penchant for painting, primarily with acrylic on canvas, wood, and anything else she could get paint to adhere to.  Sarah’s work can be seen primarily over the Internet, most notably, on her personal website “passions of a Canadian Country Girl.” http://www.angelfire.com/planet/pccg

Cheryl Teoh –My name is Cheryl Teoh, I am 21 years old and I like to let whatever is hiding away in my mind roam around and out on to the page. Art has always been a source of comfort and sanity. I love my parents, but they are not very supportive and art is the one thing that I have that is mine, where I can surprise myself, laugh and stay a while. Growing up because of my father’s work, i have been fortunate enough to travel to different countries and experience different cultures, which have inspired the style and ideas that I explore in my art.
