What's a public art gallery without a gift shop? Centrally located in Haliburton Village's vintage rail station, we showcase work by Canadian artists and artisans in our gift shop. We present a few samples here from the collection, but you really must visit when you are in Haliburton County. All works are sold on consignment with our local Artist members.
Thank you for supporting Canadian Artists and Makers and for shopping locally.

I studied Fine Arts at Redeemer College and Ceramics at Sheridan College. Now I live in Haliburton, off-grid, with my husband and our dog. I painted abstract oils, but since developing an allergy to the paints, I've been doing abstract digital art and photography. My inspiration comes from how I see and feel an image and what I am experiencing at the moment.
I am an off-grid digital artist.

Susanne creates stoneware pottery, both hand-built and wheel-thrown, including mugs, bowls, and platters. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of her surroundings in the Haliburton Highlands. Some pieces are imprinted with real pine boughs and pine cones, creating a true Haliburton souvenir. Others have the ever-popular dragonfly motif. Susanne has also developed a line of helpful pottery gifts for knitters. Her glazes are lead-free and food-safe, and reflect the colours of nature.

If a tree falls in the forest I hear it. When it dies I bring it back to life by exposing it's inner beauty. I work with only fallen trees.
I am an observational artist. My paintings are scenes of everyday moments and experiences. I focus on capturing the essence of a subject rather than expressly copying the information I see in order to create a work that expresses a sense of time, place and feeling.

Since my retirement (20 years ago) I have enjoyed learning to use and create watercolour pictures. My dear husband Jack does all the matting and framing. He loves using old barn wood and fallen rotten trees for the wood his frames. We are inspired by the places where we live and the places we travel to. It has been an incredible learning experience that is both exhilarating and humbling. Our greatest inspiration is the dear people we live, paint and work with.
I discovered that I was an artist, just like mom and grandmother before me, during a course with Lila Lewis Irving at the Haliburton School of the Arts. Since then I have explored watercolour crayons and acrylics and usually combine them to make paintings which illustrate quotations I like. My favourite ice cream is Kawartha Dairy peanut butter chocolate!! I also love to write out what I have learned from living life. I just completed a trilogy exploring the 3 aspects of Soul Misery- personal,
