Portrait of the Artist: Sean M Puckett

In his early years, the easy money of computer programming lured Sean away from his fascination with graphic arts and photography. Now that he has decided his soul is more important than his wallet, he’s put down the keyboard and picked up his camera once more. He smiles more frequently these days. Sean’s studio is in Kitchener, Ontario.

Portrait of the Artist: Lauren Judge

Lauren Judge is a multi-disciplinary artist, living and working in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. She has recently joined the Waterloo Community Arts Centre as General Manager, gaining a new perspective of the local arts community, and takes delight in providing arts programs and events for the public at affordable cost.
Lauren is primarily a hand knitter. With 20 years of experience, Lauren creates her own patterns and original designs for women’s accessories. She chooses to work exclusively with 100% natural fibres, with a flair for silks, wool and alpaca in natural pigments.
Since 2008, Lauren’s artistic interests have shifted to painting with acrylics in an abstract style, taking elements from the styles of Picasso and Pollock. Recently her focus has shifted to a pouring technique that allows her to apply a passionate dose of colour and texture. Her techniques and the added use of symbolism help to convey a social or environmental message.
Lauren also has experience in stained glass. She prefers to work in large pieces, breaking down scenery into shapes and planes, building in perspective and value, and experimenting with texture.
