Art Exhibition & Sale
Our inaugural event will feature Lisa Thomson and Laurine Fillo. Lisa has been painting for 30 years, deals primarily in oils and has been inspired by the Impressionists. Laurine has been a photographer for 11 years and loves to use macro photography to create wonderful images you have to see.
Inspired by the Impressionists, Lisa loves to inject brilliant light in her paintings, and uses vibrant colors.
Lisa’s parents introduced her, from an early age, to appreciate the grandeur of nature. Using primarily oils, Lisa strives to capture nature’s beauty on canvas, using the subtleties of light as a dominant theme.
In her paintings, Lisa tries to capture the essence of natural life – the grand vistas of the prairies, the power of the mountains, playful colors in gardens and the peacefulness of water. She has been painting for 30 years and has studied under a number of artists. Over this time she has worked with different media, explored various styles and experimented with different color palettes.
Photography is another of Lisa’s passions, and she often uses her camera to capture the scenes that she paints.
Lisa was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and resides there with her husband and two children. She is an avid skier, runner and swimmer, and spends a lot of time in the mountains, and at Sylvan Lake in the summer months.
Lisa is an active member of the Foothills Artists Society and participates in various art related community events.
Laurine is a Calgary based fine art photographer and has enjoyed capturing images for the past 11 years as a professional. She loves to get up close and personal with her subject…using macro photography to create extraordinary images from often very ordinary things. Capturing the colour, texture, pattern and shape of objects is amazing, as often she is able to reveal what the human eye can’t see.
Having worked in both Calgary and Melbourne, Australia, her work has been enriched by this international exposure.
“The richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration.” – Claude Monet
