Media: natural/organic fibres
I have been knitting since 2005, but it wasn’t until my fourth (and last!) baby was born in 2015 that I really got inspired to create some beautiful baby garments. I put a lot of love into everything I knit, and I carefully curate each yarn that I use to be perfect not only for the specific piece, but for caressing baby’s sensitive skin. I strive to use natural and organic fibers in my creations, and the designs I knit up are simple, timeless, but with a touch of vintage charm. I like to let the inherent beauty of the fibers I choose shine through, and my hope is that you will cherish and save these pieces for the next generation.
Media: Drawings and oil paint
My interest in how nature and humanity are intrinsically linked motivates me to explore how we are spiritually connected to our environment, and the nature that surrounds us.
While the techniques I use are similar to the old masters, the subject matter is current in figurative and landscape themes.
The artists of the K-W Central Art Walk are hosting a pop-up gallery at the Odeon Gallery in the Princess Twin, starting this Friday. You’re invited to the gala reception on Thursday, September 7 at 7:00 P.M. Come on out and see some great art at a great Waterloo institution.
Also, there’s probably popcorn involved.

Elvan is a local artist and who shares her love for art through teaching. She has a studio located in Waterloo where she teaches acrylic and sculpture to non-artists from age 8 to 78. It’s her desire to show to people that art is not only a result, but it is also a process. She believes this process can awaken a person’s inner world and help spur out-of-the-box thinking.
She is experienced on many diverse art forms, including acrylic paintings, oil paintings, Encaustic (beeswax + oil colour), mixed media and sculpture (Paverpol – fabric sculpture) and Turkish Art called “EBRU”.
