Oil Painting & Linocut Printmaking
33 Hampton Avenue
When life forces us to slow down, it gives us time to focus on our immediate surroundings and the details that we ordinarily overlook.
In Lenka’s recent paintings of local landscapes, she studies the raw and organic lines of our shores: how they connect and intertwine, reflect and recede.
Light is a constant influence. It shapes the story that unfolds.
Mixed media and textiles with natural inks
108 Smirle Avenue
I like to make work that aims to capture the transient and fragile beauty of our natural world, and that alludes to the passing of time. I grow native plants in my garden and forage for them locally, processing them to obtain colours and to create both subject and materials for my art. As well as prints and paintings, I make inks, paints and paper for my art from plants and foraged rocks.
Painting with mixed media

Paula Mitas Zoubek has painted all her life and can’t do with out artistic expression. Even at 81 she still has many ideas that she wants to develop. Experimenting and the development of ideas is the most exciting part of creation.
Paula has had numerous awards including a Canada Council and a Provincial Arts Council Award. Her interest has always been in the plight of women and children, things near and dear, and nature, to which we all are unconditionally bound.
Paula has worked with painted, dyed, and batiked fabrics some exceeding 12 feet. Now she mainly works on wood and canvas. Her painting is combined with collage in a unique way.
Acrylic paintings on canvas
320 Whitby Avenue
I am lucky to have the chance to draw, sculpt and paint all my life. During the lockdown, I had a very productive year. I was able to create canvases I always wanted to make, and finally, I found the time to turn my inspiration and love of beautiful nature into creative work.
Oil, Acrylic, and Watercolour
483 Brennan Avenue
I have been painting professionally for over twenty five years now. I paint mostly with oils and acrylics, and sometimes with watercolours. I have a wonderful garden that has been, and continues to be a source of inspiration for a number of my paintings. Though initially self-taught, I have taken a number of formal courses through the Ottawa School of Art, the St. Lawrence College, Halliburton School of the Arts, the Ottawa Carleton School Board, and the Dempsey and Heron Community Centres to refine my techniques.
The pandemic has been an emotional time for everyone, full of reflection and adjustment. The “busy ness” of social interaction disappeared and, with the lockdowns, I was alone with my thoughts and feelings. Up to this point my life as an artist has been dedicated to capturing the beauty of nature in a very real way, depicting the play of light and dark, and the magic of colour in flowers and landscapes around me. Somehow, the pandemic put a different lens on what I saw around me – everything was still there, but in a way appeared more ethereal, and sometimes even fragile. I wanted to paint what I … Read More »

“David W. Jones is one of Canada’s foremost landscape painters”(Ottawa Citizen, January 2007). “The beauty, splendor and unique vastness of our landscape, coast to coast, are captured in his canvases.”(National Arts Centre, November 1999)
For over 35 years, David Jones has exhibited extensively across Canada, Japan, Italy and the United States. In 1981, Jones received a special commission to be Canada’s War Artist depicting activities on board a destroyer on the Pacific Ocean. In 1985, a major art exhibition commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Navy toured North America and Jones’ works were displayed alongside works by Arthur Lismer, Alex Colville, Charles Comfort and William Ogilvy. In Canada, he has shown at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Calgary’s Glenbow Museum, the National Museum of Nature, the British Columbia Provincial Museum, the Ottawa Art Gallery and the National War Museum.
In July 2016, Jones was one of 40 Ontario artists invited to Kleinburg, Ontario to compete in a 2-day/50th Anniversary celebration of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. After 2 days, a jury selected his painting to be displayed in the McMichael Cdn. Art Gallery, alongside the legendary “Group of Seven” artists of the 20th … Read More »
15 Helena Street
Many of my prints are black and white; I love the graphic quality of the dark ink on the light paper, the balance of the printed marks and the spaces around them.
Increasingly, I am drawn to landscape as a subject in my printmaking practice, especially the winter landscape. Wetlands is part of a series of lithographs of the Gatineau Park in winter. It was created for a print exchange with the Mahone Bay Printmakers, and was exhibited in Lunenburg this spring.

Lynette brings the ancient art form of stained glass into the space age with modern materials (sheet acrylic, glass paints, inlaid lead) and an innovative new process. Being unrestricted by traditional methods, Lynette’s all-original designs (which reflect both her Celtic heritage and her Canadian birthright), are unique in the field of window art.
