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.

Anne Marie Slegers

Anne Marie's beach art is created using stones, beach glass, shells, crystals/rhinestones, driftwood, sand, straw, moss, sticks, yarn and other miscellaneous objects. Stones, shells and beach glass are collected on Wellington Beach, Camlachie.

Other creative interests of hers include sewing, crochet, machine embroidery, calligraphy, gardening, interior design and thumbtack art. Having taken interior design courses at Mohawk College has helped her immensely with the use of colour, balance and other design aspects when creating artwork.

N. Leonard Segall

Leonard is interested in photography as an art form. He believes that the photographer uses the camera to capture an image from the world around us – creating a print that he hopes will stand on its own for its evocation of feeling. Leonard has attended seminars by many prominent Canadian photographers and week long André Gallant/Freeman Patterson Photography Workshops in New Brunswick. Leonard exhibited photographs in the Gallery Lambton LOOK Show in 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2010. He has also exhibited in solo shows at the Gallery in the Grove in 2005 and 2010 and the Victoria Playhouse in Petrolia in 2018.

Leonard lives in Sarnia, Ontario, where he is an active organizer in the arts community: he is on the board of directors of The Lawrence House Centre for the Arts and is on the executive of the Sarnia Photographic Club.
