Toronto photographer Paula Whitlock draws on a wealth of inspiration from nature to architecture to vintage finds. With a keen sense of observation, she can capture the transparency of a flower pedal or the geometric sculpture of a towering building.

British born Fiona Debell is a full time visual artist working out of her studio in Toronto, Canada. Having taken the skills, knowledge, and techniques developed over two decades as a decorative artist, her work benefits from an encyclopedic understanding of paint, product, and application. Concentrating on abstract work – often on a very large scale – Fiona searches for visual balance in colour and texture using a variety of mixed media, acrylics, inks and resin. Fiona’s current ‘Royal Robes’ Collection incorporates the elemental nature of metals with the translucency of inks. Her ‘Ethereal’ Collection highlights the forced looseness of fluid work on a variety of mediums including paper and canvas.
For Lori Ryerson, Toronto-based fine art photographer, it was a natural progression from 30 years of written communications to visual storytelling through her photography. Lori seeks out the mystery in mundane, daily occurrences, and looks for stories left behind in the landscape. In an increasingly noisy universe, Lori uses photography to show what silence looks like. A lifelong exposure to Japanese culture has given her an appreciation of how fine details contribute to those stories. Sixteen years of studying flying trapeze in the Toronto cirque community changed Lori’s perspective on the world. Her camera has become both her brush and her pen, allowing her to share the stores she finds in her viewfinder.

After a 20-year career as a Creative Director in a Canadian home furnishing company, Mishel Schwartz took a leap of faith and plunged into the life of a full-time artist. She is an emerging force both in Canada as well as internationally, as evidenced by her 2019 exhibition in the Carrousel de Louvre in Paris. Her technique of layering inks and carving intricate details in the layered colours give her work great depth and mystery.
Colour is a key driver for Toronto based artist Christina Hennig. From the time she was a young child and fell in love with the blue green color in her crayon box she has had an urge to create. Growing up in small town Ontario she was inspired by the natural world - the fall colors, wildflowers, lakes and streams, and sunset skies - always skies. She works in a variety of mediums creating beautiful florals, lyrical landscapes and evocative abstract paintings. Her works are collected throughout North America and Europe.
By all appearances, Michael does not come across as your typical wildlife photographer. He's been living and working for the past 22 years in Toronto, Canada, far from the world of his photographic pursuits. But don’t be fooled by his corporate disposition. Michael is as comfortable delivering corporate strategy plans and long-term financial projections, as he is capturing intimate and unprotected images of saltwater crocodiles, floating in schools of grey and blacktip reef sharks or gently nudging up to colourful nudibranchs and harlequin shrimps of the south pacific.
