About the Artists

Sophie Drouin’s unique conceptual mosaics captivate with innovative forms, compositions and materials. Sophie recently won a Special Prize at Prix Picassiette 2010 in Chartres, France. It is one of the world's most prestigious mosaic exhibitions. She is known locally for co-designing the mosaic of King Tut made with over 3000 cups of coffee in Waterloo Public Square last August.

Louise Marée draws her inspiration from observing nature's design. She paints with oils in an impressionistic style, letting the work lead her into its own realm of light and shadow. She often finds her subjects in the woods of Grey County and the farm fields of the Region of Waterloo.

Jean Weller is a professional photographer and global traveler. Since 2005, Jean has been a photographer for Cruise North Expeditions on trips to Canada’s Arctic, Labrador, Newfoundland and Greenland. In 2010, she visited Antarctica.
