I'm Brooke. I was born in the NWT and have been living in Whitehorse, Yukon for over 20 years.I love visual imagery and getting creative with painting, drawing, or taking photos -- this is where I thrive. There is way more to photography than focus, composition and exposing.. there is an art for selecting the right moment. My favourites are the 'in-between' moments.. so you'll notice in most of my work it's not your typical smiling shot; it might be an intense stare from your very independent toddler, the giggles from your children, or the face of a new mom looking down at her new baby.. ahh I just can't get enough of real, human emotion!

Heather Von Steinhagen

Art is a conduit for ideas, encompassing emotions, thoughts, and symbolism, affecting each observer in unique ways. I am aware of the integrated connotations and patterns in shapes and symbols and by using space as subject and element, the ultimate concept of an art piece may be obscure allowing a playfulness of meaning with the observer. I am confident to create artwork that is not only personal to my own experiences but to create visual codes which act as a nod of understanding between art and viewer as there are infinite patterns of connection.

Anne Hoerber

I am emerging artist working primarily in encaustics, living and working in Whitehorse. I am fascinated by the moments when nature fuses light and air to create works of art. I try to evoke the feelings of wonder inspired by those moments, when the quality of light amplifies the beauty of nature.Encaustic is an unpredictable medium, and so, even when I try to plan, my paintings evolve. As I work with the wax, often an image or a feeling will begin to form, sometimes surprising me. I am drawn to the beauty and richness of the surface and the way the wax reveals and conceals. The movement possible with hot wax and pigment is seductive and satisfying. I often incorporate found objects to create my mixed media pieces. I have an emotional connection to objects that have seen the passage of time. My art reflects places I love, and objects that intrigue me, the search for stillness and balance. I love rich colors, and sculptural textures.

Leslie Leong

?In my practice I employ a variety of expressive forms often using unorthodox materials, forcing me to adopt non-traditional techniques. I find this results in a more open-ended process, sending me on a journey of inquiry and exploration; to learn, to change, to be surprised, to be moved, and to feel something. This is a way for me to overcome the numbing effects of the depressive state of our world, and the apathy it produces.?
