About the Artists

Sanela Dizdar is an award‐winning artist and drawing instructor in UpTown Gallery whose paintings are best described by da Vinci's quote: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."

Diane Eastham, Oktoberfest Woman of the Year 2011 for Arts and Culture, is an award‐winning artist who incorporates bold colour and interesting texture in her abstract multimedia work.

Christine Gagnon creates contemporary studio jewellery inspired by the natural world and classic modernist design. Her materials range from precious metals and gems to found objects.

Nicole Waddick recently had a solo show of paintings and sculptures at the Cambridge Centre of the Arts. Her current work is inspired by Southern Alberta where she completed an artist residency in 2011.
