2017 Bio – Heather Siemens

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.

2017 Bio – Esther Devries-Lasby

Media: Pottery

Working in clay for many years, Esther produces a wide range of functional items. Inspiration comes from the textures found in nature and the techniques applied to quilting and fibre arts. Esther fires pots in both oxidized and reduction atmospheres producing a lively colourful range of pots that are a pleasure to use everyday.
At the art walk this year, you will again be able to contribute to a community pot.


2017 Bio – Elvan H Suzer

Media: Acrylics, Paverpol (for sculpture), Oil color, Drawing

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”.
