Gordon Leverton is a self-taught artist who has been working full-time at his practice since 2006. Using acrylic paint and soft pastel mediums, Leverton explores a theme common to the urban experience – how community connects us all.
Image 2: Amy Ferrari Art, "The Dofasco Experience", acrylic on canvas, 36 x 36 inches.
Amy Ferrari, a compulsive doodler, has always been constantly distracted and fascinated by shapes, colours, and patterns she finds in everything. Ferrari’s practice is transformative, and molds fluid lines, animated shapes, and brilliant colors.

Nancy Benoy is a self-taught visual artist, working primarily in acrylic, ink and paper. She lives, creates and teaches art in #hamont.

Jieun June Kim’s multi-media practice is founded on her love of the natural and urban environments around her and the folk art of Korea; the homeland where she was born and raised. She currently lives and works in #torontoontario.
Image 5: Elzbieta Krawecka, "Slumbering Beast", oil on wood panel, 40 x 40 inches.
Elzbieta Krawecka's painting style is a personal exploration of the transient nature of light and its potential to describe space in terms of movement. She uses thick and opaque paint, often applied with a palette knife, alongside translucent glazes of thinner washes.
