About the Artists
Creative Spirits – Linda Hamilton, Carole Wennington, Janice Graham, Judith Whitemarsh and Paula McGahon – is a small group of artists who have been together approximately four years. They enjoy getting together to paint and offer friendly,
supportive critique to one another. They
have come together from varying backgrounds, art clubs and art
experience and enjoy sharing differing methods, techniques and mediums with the group.
Laura Brackenbury is a settler of British descent who is grateful to live, work, love and play on the unceded lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. This show is a collection of photos
taken in travel around the world in 2019 pre-COVID - a celebration of the wonders we can see, large and small - and the commonalities of colour, texture, lighting, and movement. What a wonderful world.
