ManChoi ChowManChoi hopes to never lose the sense of wonder in his art making…as his initial curiosity and wonderment is evoked; as he captures what he sees through his lens; as he creates, and regenerates the original inspiration. “My hope is to connect with others who may also experience wonder through my art, broadening our shared experience of the wonder-filled world we share.

Sophie DrouinInternationally recognized, award-winning mosaic artist Sophie Drouin is admired for her eclectic vision and artistic experimentation. Her art has been featured in professional exhibits in Italy, France, the United States, and Canada. She has been commissioned for mosaic installations, has performed as a juror in several important competitions, and has taught technique classes at important mosaic studios in the U.S. and Canada. She was the first North American Mosaic artist to be honoured as the sole invited guest for the Invitational portion of the Mosaic Arts International Exhibition in 2018 in Boston.

Wendy Fletcher: Beauty embedded everywhere in the natural world inspires awe in Wendy. She wonders at the transcendent wrapped in the creaturely and attempts to communicate the depth of breath-taking beauty through her paintbrush. Colours on canvas, as wonder at the world, express her experience of that which is beyond words.

Adrienne Zoe: Adrienne finds wonder in the world around her, and especially enjoys exploring nature and travelling. Her recent passion for bird photography has brought her on many birding trails and keeps her busy year-round. Her images are works of art expressing her wonder in the subjects she photographs.
