Olga Zakharova 2D: Nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Olga; the grandeur of trees, ancient trunks, obscurely twisted roots and stems, and the play of light and shade all influence her oil on canvas paintings. Originally from the Ukraine and a graduate of the National Academy of Fine Arts, she currently lives in Burnaby and works out of her private studio.
Julie Emerson 3D: Julie creates magical, lifelike silk sculptures that defy gravity, inspired by the preparation, politics and culture of food. These sculptures are constructed with wood, plastic, metal, and stone then covered with colourful silk. Julie’s sculpture and painting studio is in East Vancouver.
