In 1999, Shirley graduated from The University of Alberta with a Masters Degree in Art History. Since then she have focussed her artistic endeavours on landscapes, florals, and collage and assemblage pieces. Though her landscape and floral paintings are in a realistic style, they give expression not simply to the world around her, but to her relationship with that world and therefore express an inner as well as an outer vision. The collages and assemblages that she construct communicate an entirely inner vision.
Edward Epp was born in 1950 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Epp is best known for his landscape paintings that depict scenes from his home environments and his travels (including trips to Liberia, Botswana and China). Much of his work is plein air paintings, and the elements, especially wind and rain, have played an important part in his process. Epp's work has been shown in exhibitions in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia, as well as in the United States and Botswana.

Jane Everett grew up in Winnipeg and completed her Fine Arts degree at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Engaged in painting in oil on canvas, and drawing on Belgian linen with charcoal, graphite, and conte, her work reevaluates traditional materials and media with iconoclastic method. Her waterscape paintings verge on the abstract, using complex layerings of colour to render the undulating surface of water in an intricate study of light and form. Her large figure drawings on stretched linen communicate the kinesis of anatomical subjects through accomplished control of gestural line. For the past number of years she has lived in Western Canada, while her work is exhibited across the country in both private and public galleries, and held in corporate and private collections.
