Brenda Ross

Brenda is a Sarnia native and works in a nonobjective abstract style with acrylic and collage.  Growing up so near the water she finds the “water theme” continuously showing up in her work.  She is most excited by colour, shape, texture and line. Her work has been shown in galleries in Port Stanley, St Thomas, London and Sarnia.

Margaret Bauer

Margaret was born in England and moved to Sarnia in 2006. Margaret is for the most part a self-taught artist.  She took courses in oil painting while residing in England. Margaret now prefers faster drying acrylics.  She enjoys the challenge of the more difficult medium of watercolour, but feels she has yet to master the freedom that watercolour provides.  She is a member of the Sarnia Artists’ Workshop and has participated in several workshops in Sarnia.  She continues to work on improving her skills.  As well as landscapes, Margaret paints animal portraits in acrylic on stone – a very relaxing and enjoyable outlet for her creativity. Margaret’s work hangs in several private collections both in Europe and North America.
