Canadian painter, Frank Danielson, has been working as a full-time artist since the
1990’s. He is presently based in Sudbury, Ontario where he spent his early years
surrounded by the vastness of the iconic Canadian landscape. While he primarily
focusses on the natural beauty of northern Ontario his time spent living and working in
Toronto, Kingston and Montreal has also influenced his subject matter. He studied at
York University in Toronto and completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1995. Frank has
worked in both oils and acrylics and his work has sold in many galleries in Canada as
well as to private collections in Japan and Australia.
Victor Oriecuia, a Kingston-based stone carver is passionate about his calling. With no rigid rules or expectations, he freely carves, both Italian and local Ontario marble, to evoke his senses and appease his passion. He utilizes the direct carving method, a method which requires no model or predetermined outcome…a method which relies heavily on faith.
