Savannah Severin

Hi everyone! My name is Savannah and I go by SASART for all of my creations! I am a completely freehand and self taught artist with a fond love of nature themed works when creating personal pieces! Based out of Lacombe Alberta, I grew up and enjoyed living in many various areas of Central Alberta adding to my fondness of portraying landscapes and scenery you see locally and within the province!

I create originals, commissions, and teach. With my teachings I do both in person and virtually for art classes, lessons, workshops, and even custom sessions. These are available for all ages and skill sets to allow for anyone to be able to expand their creativity!

I work in a wide array of mediums, styles, subjects, sizes, and price points as I am always up for new works that I have never made! I chose to not niche specifically into one art form as I love all forms of art, and love to expand my own knowledge and skills! Custom commission works of any kind you can imagine – whether it be a painting (acrylic, watercolor, oil paint, mixed media), drawings (pen, pencil, charcoal, marker, mixed mediums), illustrations (pen and ink), window painting, logo designs, tattoo designs, stencils, banners, 3D works, paper works, miniatures, wall murals, wood burns, chalk art, face painting, and so much more! You name it, SASART will bring it to life!

Vern Steinbrecker

I was raised on a farm north of Hanna and spent most of my life in Calgary, employed in the agricultural field and construction.

My wood turning started about 15 years ago as a personal hobby. After 7 years of building skills, I eventually began showing my work at the Farmers’ Markets around Calgary.

Upon retiring 3 years ago, I moved to Sundre, Alberta where I am continuing to make wooden objects and enjoying the small local farmers markets here. I buy most of my wood, but if I find an interesting piece of wood I try to turn it into someone else’s treasure.

Michele Brewster

I wanted to be an artist at a young age. Like many other artists, I want to create images that inspire emotional response.

My formal education was at the Alberta College of Art, but I feel that the experiences of life and an appreciation of nature have had the most influence on my work. Keeping standards high is what forces me to grow as an artist, something that is ongoing as I attempt to do more with my time and energy.

I find the most satisfaction from working with oil or gouache. I try to use design theory to create a strong composition. It becomes exciting to see it through to completion.

My work has found homes in Europe, the United States, as well as in Canadian corporate and private collections.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Marianne Harris was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and developed her talent for art while still in elementary school. She started with a general exposure to various types of art media, but quickly focused her interests on painting–first oils, then watercolours, and now acrylics and mixed water-based media. Over the years, several artists have inspired and influenced her, and a somewhat looser style currently predominates her paintings.

Her works have sold across the country and abroad, being displayed in many art shows, with various art clubs and associations, as well as in private shows. Marianne’s works are available in several galleries as well. Commissioned pieces are done on request.

Marianne has expanded her art business, Paintwerx Studios, to include teaching children and adult workshops, for-fun “Away To Play” paint events, competitions, illustrations, and photography, which makes hers a continuously busy schedule!

David Todd

I’ve been a potter for more than 25 years and now, a new resident of Markerville, Alberta. Using a combination of electric, gas kilns, primitive firing and a wood kilns, the pottery produced has a unique style and range. One can never have too many handmade coffee mugs!

The evolution of my pottery has taken me through primitive firing techniques, the fire and dance of Raku and into the functionality of stoneware and porcelain. I have been learning about firing pottery in a wood kiln and have several firings of my pottery completed already. Soon there will be a functional line of pottery using this technique as well.

Inspired by nature and using clay formed by ancient rivers, I create handmade objects that will last for thousands of years.

Amanda Frost

Amanda Frost is a self-taught artist originally from England. “I have seen many places in the world but am proud to call Canada home.”

She got into art at a young age, and found that her father’s work as draftsman led her to use math in art, hence the pointillism and architectural drawings for which she is best known. She is also well known for her love of animals.

“My mission is to have fun trying to do justice to the beauty that surrounds us.” – A.F.

Brenda J Smith

Brenda has a solid experience with Still Lifes and Landscapes in Acrylic on canvas, but also creates unique abstracts. Her previous profession in Decorative Painting and specialized wall finishes, has led her into using this vast knowledge of various plasters and metallic products, and applying them on canvas. These pieces mimicking her love of ancient European architecture with their aged and textured facades. She has recently started combining these plaster products with her fine art to push her boundaries even farther.

Along with her decorative painting experience she has done many residential murals and has worked in Canada, the USA, as well as Germany. Her many years crafting stained glass has also given her additional art form experience.

Brenda has also taught for many years, in such classes as stained glass, professional decorative painting and Trompe l Oeil. She also has experience and taught with many other mediums such as resin, chalk and milk paint, and incorporates some of these in her current works.

Her latest gallery exhibition “Escape With Me” was influenced by the world wide covid situation starting in 2020. She wanted her audience to be able to escape to the many travel destinations she painted for this exhibit.

She has her work adorning many businesses and residences in her area, as well as being featured in a popular Alberta magazine and Home and Garden Conde Nast UK.

She resides in Red Deer, Alberta Canada.

Raevyn Berg

I was born and raised in Alberta and have spent the majority of my life surrounded by the enriching beauty that is our natural backyard. I am compelled to venture to the Rocky Mountains whenever I need a spiritual recharge. I enjoy every moment being in the wilderness, especially when I get the opportunity to sit by a flowing body of water.

My desire to be immersed in nature has made me an avid wildlife enthusiast, particularly when it comes to understanding the impacts people have on wildlife populations. I’ve spent hours and hours mesmerized by the behaviors and antics of other living beings on our planet. Painting animals has been one of my most rewarding subjects, as I love showing the expression of their soul through my art, as well as reminding people that they too, exist.

I’ve been painting professionally for a few years now and always pursue greater excellence as my style emerges and my artistic journey continues.

Christina Ekman

I have a love of nature in particular the trees and hills, skies and the feeling they convey to me. I have been called an original druid, by some.

My love of history and change in society is a focus for my art. I enjoy interpreting and as such am more an abstract or impressionist painter.

My hope and dream is to share some of the trails i have travelled with you.
