Eric Christensen began painting professionally in 1992. Since that time he has enjoyed amazing success and a growing reputation as a celebrated Wine Country Artist. Self-taught, he invented a watercolor technique that allows him to create images of vibrant color that go beyond the look and depth of a high-quality photograph. Collectors of Christensen’s art typically own several of his creations and enjoy the varied themes they portray; lifelike landscapes and intimate still life paintings that incorporate a variety of elements including food, flowers or fruit.
Brian Croft is a former fighter pilot with the Canadian Forces. Today he is a widely recognized artist whose work emanates from the beautiful locales surrounding Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Brian’s major works are now rendered on canvas and his meticulous research and paint process continues to produce highly detailed and evocative paintings of our past. He resides in Langley, B.C. and has created over 380 works.

Limited Edition Prints
Born near Antwerp, Belgium, Brenders has drawn since childhood. He studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Antwerp and later at Berchem. He produced wildlife illustrations for a series of books entitled The Secret Life of Animals. Honored as the 24th Master Artist at the prestigious 2002 “Birds in Art” Exhibition at Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, Brenders’ work is regularly exhibited at the Museum. His art is the subject of the critically acclaimed book, Wildlife: The Nature Paintings of Carl Brenders (now out-of-print). The wildlife images of Brenders’ art are first created from pencil sketches; from these sketches his mixed media paintings of watercolor and gouache are completed with a technique he has developed during the last 25 years.
Cathryn is well-known for her large stone and bronze sculptures of Canadian wildlife. Wanting to create works that could be handheld, Cathryn created the model for this series with her hand and a toothpick, rather than sculpting tools. This way the little bears fit nicely in your hand when you pick them up to hold or view the finished works.
This new body, "Waiting for Mama" is a departure from her work to date, and something that Cathryn has enjoyed creating.
