Kari Lehr Art

Kari Lehr lives and paints in the beautiful Crowsnest Pass, Alberta, Canada.  A graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design, she spent 20 years illustrating for various agencies, studios and corporations around North America. Today she pursues her own vision, working primarily in acrylic, often incorporating mixed media.

“I am endlessly fascinated by the textures and layers which are found not only in the landscape, but which comprise our relationships with each other and the mental and physical environment in which we live.
In this frenetic society we live in, I cherish the  quiet solitude I often feel in my community which allows room for peaceful contemplation. Through my work, I seek to impart a sense of that stillness which allows us to feel connection to each other and the natural world.”

Kyla Brown Photography

Kyla Gent (nee Brown) is a local freelance photographer, artist and writer. A graduate of Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia, Kyla completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography in 2003 and started her photography business Kyla Brown Photography. As an innovative and creative artist, she enjoys traveling and finding inspiration for her artistic creations along the way.

Kyla invites her camera to become an extension of her eye as she connects and celebrates the world before her. In addition to her photographic work, Kyla is also passionate about automatic writing and drawing where she explores her creativity joyfully. ‘Lucent Imagery’ a line that takes her creativity into new and creative realms with her writing and personal artwork. This line brings Kyla’s journal drawings and writings out into the world where she sets them free.

“My intention with this work is to share it with others… I see each piece as a thread that offers a connection.
A place where you might share a moment and feel a stirring that touches or inspires you.
I believe that art is an opportunity to awaken.
I hope that when you look at my work you see something of your own life, your own history and walk away trusting
the profound discovery of every moment…”

Kendra Dixson (nee Kendra Smith) grew up in a log house in the woods, near Williams Lake, BC. She studied French and Spanish in Quebec and Victoria and graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts. Rather than take the traditional approach to a career, Kendra’s perspective is that she is “qualified to travel” and for the next five years enjoyed traveling overseas as well as in Canada.

Kendra took her first watercolour workshops in the summer of 1999. She has always been creative and watercolours instantly became a passion. Kendra moved to Fernie, BC where she held her first solo art show in 2001.

In the beginning she sold hand painted cards but quickly graduated to reproduction when she could no longer keep up with the demand. Kendra exhibits her original work in several galleries and gift stores across Canada. Many of her watercolour paintings have made their way into private collections around the world.

A full time artist and workshop instructor, Kendra has an art studio in downtown Kelowna, BC where she continues to enjoy this creative side of life.
