CARMEN THERRIAULT, PHOTOGRAPHER

Living in the Sylvan Lake area for many years, Carmen has a deep desire to share the surrounding natural beauty with others. Through her lens, she depicts the world as she perceives it in her mind's eye, finding novel ways to communicate new concepts and open people's eyes. Spending most of her time close to home at the onset of the pandemic, Carmen learned to see her own backyard with fresh eyes. Everyday views became her "canvas." Taking on a personal project of photographing nightscapes, Carmen always finds her time under the night sky calming and feels compelled to share these beautiful experiences with others, and perhaps even inspire others to step outside their comfort zone to enjoy the night!

MARINA THOMPSON, SILVERWARE ARTIST

As a person who could never look at the world without seeing pictures and images within everyday objects, transforming antique silverware and fine China just seemed to be the natural thing to do. Where others see an everyday fork or a spoon, Marina sees an octopus or a mermaid's tail. Beginning her journey as a silverware artist in the summer of 2013, Marina is self-taught, learning through trial and error. Moving from the beautiful mountains and foothills of Alberta to the vast farmlands and pastures surrounding Sylvan Lake, Marina's art is her life. It feeds her soul and provides a comfortable living.
