Frances’ art is fully rooted in the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Her watercolours, often depicting her love of the local landscape, are planned and deliberate. Her acrylic paintings balance on the edge of abstraction and develop intuitively through layering marks and textures. She also expresses
herself with an array of printmaking techniques.
Painting has always been her passion. Her life informs her art and her art enlarges her perspectives and nudges her imagination.
Frances studied at Doon School of Fine Art, Sheridan College, and at various workshops by well-known artists.
She is a member of the KW Society of Artists and has opened her studio to the Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour since its inception in 2003.
Studio location: 16 Eby Street, St. Jacobs ON.

Kathy has resided in Woolwich Township all of her life. Her hometown is Elmira where she attended elementary and secondary school, graduating in 1969. During the time she attended EDSS there weren’t any art classes offered, so she was mainly self-taught. Kathy studied Business and Commerce and worked in several manufacturing offices before she was married and had a family. She continued to work on her art when her girls were toddlers and took some drawing and painting classes in the evening. Kathy has exhibited her work on the Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour a few times and now that she is retired, hopes to find other venues to share her work. She strives to create an emotional response through her paintings. Children, nature and global issues inspire her art. She paints mainly in oils and acrylics and uses both realism and abstract forms to express her ideas.
