About Kimberly Kiel
Kimberly Kiel was born in Saskatchewan in 1972. She started her painting career at the age of 31 while living in Calgary. Lured by the wide open spaces of her home province, in 2008 she moved back to Saskatchewan and now resides, with her husband and two sons, on an acreage near her hometown.
Kimberly received a Bachelor of Administration from the University of Regina in 1994. Upon graduation, she launched a successful financial planning career based out of Regina. In the 1990s, she left Saskatchewan for the greener pastures of Calgary, Alberta and continued building her financial planning practice for the next decade. In 2003, she decided it was time for a change and sold her practice to take up life as an artist. While predominately self taught, early on in her career she benefited greatly from the mentoring offered by several other artists.
Having always had a love for creating things - for music, for dance - she found one of her greatest passions when she applied paintbrush to canvas for the first time; and finds as much joy in the process as in the end product.
"For me, art is a passion. A celebration of the joy and colour to be found in life."
Kimberly's business experience and entrepreneurial spirit have served her well. Her artwork is currently showcased and sold in galleries from British Columbia to Quebec, as well as in Switzerland. It can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.
Kimberly expresses herself through a wide variety of subject matter; landscapes and treescapes; figure pieces and florals. She loves the creaminess of oil, the opportunity to blend, that it doesn't dry too quickly. Looking at her work, it's obvious that colour is a major source of inspiration. She greatly enjoys playing around with the surface on the canvas, getting different layers and textures.
"I paint as an expression of joy and energy. It is pure delight to squeeze out huge piles of oil paint, squish it around, have it blend, meld, combine. Wet paint, layer upon layer, morphing into a tangible and interesting surface - thick, creamy, an array of gorgeous impasto marks. I strive to leave much to the imagination, for the viewer to fill in the blanks. To go from a blank, white canvas to one filled with brilliant, glorious colour - there is a huge sense of satisfaction in that."
She acknowledges that her goal is to create something subjective, intriguing and stimulating. She wants her art to touch and engage heart, mind and soul.
As an artist, Kimberly is energetic, outgoing and charming, just like the paintings she creates. Her full-of-life attitude perfectly depicts her creations.

About Laura Hamilton
As long as I can remember, I have always been a dreamer... I have always seen things in my own unique way. I grew up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan drawing, painting and creating for hours on end. I continued to have a desire for creativeness well into high school. In my early twenties, I graduated from the University of Regina with a Bachelor of Arts Education and went on to pursue a career in teaching. I taught elementary school for almost ten years.
In the Fall of 2014, I transitioned from my full-time career to pursuing my practice as an emerging artist. This transition was not intentional; instead, it was something of a serendipitous coincidence. Leading up to this transition, I struggled with postpartum depression and because of it, I returned to my love of painting and found my own figurative style. My first painting in this style, Lucy in the Yellow Dress, was done at my kitchen table. As I painted a creative energy flowed through me. It felt like a dance between myself, the water, and the paint. It was in this moment that I tapped into my intuition and started to listen to my inner voice. “Created by Heart, Painted by Soul” has become my tag line.
Since that day, I have embraced my painting and now live with a creative purpose. For myself the creative process is an experience that is spiritual ~ being in the present moment, finding the stillness within, listening to my inner voice and creating beauty. I feel most authentic when I am creating.
My figurative paintings are my own interpretations of beautiful women. These women have continued to transform as I have evolved as an artist. In the beginning these women were brave and courageous, and I believed they helped me to heal. My signature female characters can now be described as playful and intriguing women with vintage dresses, stripped stockings, fun floral patterns and everything in between.
My artistic journey is now a full-time career and I could not follow this path without the love and support of my family and friends. My husband Kieran and two children Luke and Lincoln make it possible for me to do what I love. And for that I am truly blessed.
If you are ever in Moose Jaw, feel free to make an appointment to view my home gallery and studio. Visitors are always welcome!

About Sophia Paleotheodoros
Beautifully stunning and unique artwork that adds dimension to any environment is what defines Sophia Paleotheodoros. Style, color and artistic creativity burst forth in every piece adorned with the Sophia Paleotheodoros signature. Born in Montréal of Greek heritage, Sophia kindled a sense of independence in her early years, and against the wishes of her proud mother, answered her calling to creativity. By the age of 17 she had already developed keen artistic interests, pursuing studies in Photography, Fine Arts, Creative Arts and Paintings on Canvas.
To further enhance her already acute senses, she took a sojourn to Greece in 1992, where for 3 years she meandered between the mainland and the Greek isles. Thus began the production and marketing, though initially on a small scale, of her memorable images.
Only a short time after her return to Montréal, while never losing sight of her first love, she inaugurated a successful "faux fini" company, Sophia Décor, which specialized in textured wall finishes, wall applications and murals. This undertaking would span a 14-year period before she would fully return to paintings on canvas.
Her inspiration lies in such artists as Pierre-Paul Rubins for his dark, deep colours and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's wild burlesque offerings.
Established since 1995 and a Professional member of the Conseil des Métiers D'Art du Québec ( PALS025), her canvases and artwork currently grace the walls of some of finest homes and businesses.
Sometimes dream-like, sometimes sensuous, Sophia's art is a visual exploration of surfaces, a marvellous mixture of shades that are sometimes sumptuous, sometimes simple. There is timelessness in her work, allowing it to bypass fads with the beauty of its thoughtful nature. Far from formalism, her impressionistic style is her iconic signature.

There are two prints by Maija Baynes in my studio. Both prints are of "Zipper Canal". They are called "Morning's First Light 1" and "Morning's First Light 2".
About Maija Baynes:
Maija (pronounced My-a) studied at the Paier School of Art in Connecticut, graduated from the University of Georgia in 1964, and further studied at the University of South Florida. Her early career was spent teaching art in the Georgia and Florida School Systems, and later in designing needlepoint canvases for the NeedleBug Company of Virginia.
Maija is a full time professional Florida Artist. She has been exhibiting her art for over 27 years. I guess we would call her a survivor. She still loves it, and says she will continue to exhibit outdoors as long as she gets a "kick" out of it.
She has exhibited with the Miniature Art Society of Florida, the Florida Watercolor Society, the American Watercolor Society, and in 1986 she was accepted as a Signature member into the highly prestigious National Watercolor Society. She is a member of the Florida Plein Air Painters. Presently, she works entirely in oils.
Her style can be explained as impressionistic painting with a contemporary feel.
Her interest in painting landscapes comes from the beauty of her surroundings. She has a real love for her environment. She started painting professionally in 1979. When she paints, her biggest challenge is to satisfy herself.
Her paintings are influenced by memories of a place she has been, or an experience she has had. Through her paintings, she hopes she can share her experiences.

I'm privileged to own an etching by the renowned Inuit artist Germaine Arnaktauyok who currently makes her home in Yellowknife in the Western Arctic. I received "Drum Dance" from my studio of students while teaching in Yellowknife, NWT in 1991 - 1994.
About Germaine Arnaktauyok
Germaine was born in Igloolik, Northwest Territories in 1946. Her participation in the art world has given her reason to travel extensively and far from the community of her birth.
She took Fine Art at the University of Manitoba and since then has shared her talent with many people as well as talking time to learn new techniques. She has studied at Algonquin College in Ontario and is currently studied the art of Intaglio etching with a master printer in Montreal. This allows her to etch her finely detailed work - she usually works in pen, ink, and pencil - directly into a metal plate and thus, creates multiple original prints in limited edition. A perfectionist in her art, Germaine constantly strives to learn more.
Germaine has worked her art in Frobisher Bay (now Iqaluit), British Columbia, Ontario, Montreal and Yellowknife. She has illustrated over 30 children's books and has completed work on a book by C.W. Nicol called "The Raven's Tale", which was simultaneously released in Canada and Japan. her travels have taken her to Israel to do a poster for El Al Airline, to Greenland and Sweden on an art exchange, and to Washington, D.C. as part of a delegation of Canadian artists. She also designed and executed a beautiful mural in the Inuit Art section for the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre.
Germaine has had a successful show in Montreal and while there worked for the National Film Board designing a stage and puppets for the Inuk legend "The Owl and the Raven" with Co Hodeman. To view this film, click here.
Many of Germaine's works have been acquired for the "Art from the Arctic" international exhibition which toured five countries.
Germaine's image of an Inuit drum dancer now appears on the 1999 edition of the Canadian $2 coin -- to celebrate the creation of Nunavut. Her artwork is also featured on the $200 22K gold coin issued in 2000, of a mother and child image. In 2000 Prime Minister, Jean Chretien, honoured Germaine at a ceremony on Parliament Hill for her creation of "Drummer" and "Mother and Child" designs.
Inuit art lovers, as well as collectors enamoured of print making, have been aware of her many creations as they were exhibited and sold widely in Canada as well as around the world. What is less well known is that the basis for Germaine’s prints are meticulous drawings which she creates with pen, coloured pencil and other media. Depicting the traditional Inuit stories and legends that Germaine grew up with, they share a timeless quality of the stories themselves. Her sensitive portrayals of family life, particularly the bond between mother and child, are powerfully evocative and in the last several years we have seen her move into landscape imagery, though on an intimate scale.
