SASART

SASART was created with a vision in mind: do what you love and love what you do!

The artist, Savannah, does exactly that! Based in Lacombe Alberta, she focuses on selling original creations, working at home or on site for hired commissions, and inbetween it all: teaching art classes & lessons (offered locally in Lacombe, booked privately, or with travel in Central Alberta). That’s as specific as it gets, as beyond that the artist loves to dabble in anything and everything art! You name it!

Completely freehand and self taught, with a background that all started with bic pen illustrations from a young age. You will rarely – if ever – see any drafting or use of pencil unless requested! From there, branching out into as many other mediums, styles, subjects, and areas of art. You will often see in many of the personal works a theme: nature and scenic inspired creations! When working on commissions and teaching all aspects of what will be created for or with the client/student are completely their choice: medium, size, style, theme, subject, and more! One day you may see an abstract splat creation and another day a realistic pen and ink portrait, you just never know! On other days it could be a work made completely of paper. All ages and skill levels welcome!

“Add some SAS to your life!”

Marianne Harris

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!

Shannon Foster

I gravitated to art very organically through love of nature and observing the beauty of my surroundings. Living as a farmer in Alberta, I developed an appreciation for the changes of seasons, noticing and marvelling at the different hues and impressions of the environment before me. As I travelled to different locations within this picturesque world I was inspired with shades, color, and texture.

I first started as a napkin doodler and then a sketcher, I discovered pleasure of creating. Wanting to capture visions both actual and imaginative, I started painting landscapes. With acrylic paint, scenes of wilderness and rural life turned into a visual on a canvas. Eventually graduating to the use of other techniques also learning how to incorporate these elements into my paintings.

The realistic style was rewarding; however, abstract art grabbed my heart strings as well. Experimenting with techniques, blends of colors became very fulfilling for my soul as had landscapes, doodling, sketching. The reactions of others to my art both surprised and delighted me. People have unique responses and feel connected to certain pieces.

Navigating between and exploring many mediums has brought me closer to achieving what I observe and feel from the natural world and to share it with people through art.

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.
