SUMMER BREEZE was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, and for as long as she can remember art, and finding new ways of “putting images to paper” have been huge parts of her life. In 1998, while on a break from school, Summer decided to go to Kitimat to visit with family and in only a very short time she fell in love with all that is Northwestern BC. If there were one word to describe her art it would be “colourful”. Apart from her traditional art experience, having studied Fine Arts throughout childhood, all the way up to the university level, Summer also possesses a strong digital art background which has brought new life to her work. Summer is currently working primarily with acrylics on canvas and more of her past and current works can be found on her website, www.summerbreeze.ca

In the eight years she has been painting, NOREEN SPENCE has developed a distinctive style and a dedicated following. Her art hangs in private collections throughout North America.

Collectors have used the words: fearless, vibrant, captivating, ethereal, emotionally powerful and inspirational to describe Noreen’s art. Her paintings hold depth, both visually and emotionally, and stimulate an authentic response when experienced by others. To learn more about Noreen, visit: www.noreenspence.com
