Eric Jacobsen
Ninalee Irini
Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Ninalee completed her degree in Education before moving home to teach grade school. Forever interested in the visual arts, Ninalee began painting as a hobby using crafty acrylics that wouldn’t blend. She was thrilled to discover oils soon after and has continued to develop her style over the last ten years in that medium. When she began to paint she was most interested in the style of contemporary realism. As she attended lessons and workshops, her style evolved into one that is more impressionistic, and she soon realized that art was going to become much more than an enjoyable pastime. The strong differences in seasons of the Canadian Prairies have greatly influenced Ninalee’s work by encouraging her to document what can only be seen for part of the year. She prefers to paint subjects that are fleeting in some way – ones that don’t stay in a single form for long and need to be captured, which is why her work is mostly comprised of warm landscapes, birds, and florals.

Sophie Frieda
Gradually my visual world has been drawn in to focus on the intricate layer and contours of leaves and plant life, where a similar tension is created between the layering and mesh of forms versus the simplicity of the actual form and space. I immerse myself into the picture by exaggerating the strong organic shapes and vibrant colors, where I find a very positive and powerful life force. My goal is to envelop the viewer into this exciting and energizing world and come away feeling … Revitalized and Centered. Website
