Susan Jephcott

A pivotal hub in her regional artistic community, Sue Jephcott has been active as a full time artist since 1956. Born in Hudson, Quebec, Jephcott’s career has spanned nearly five decades, passing through notable evolutions of style and content. Ranging from highly textured figure and portrait studies, to bold, hard edged symbolism, Jephcott has absorbed and personalized classical techniques, re-directing them into the stark storytelling of her content laden work.

What connects the work is an ongoing battle between primitive human impulses, and an unmovable destiny of myth and spirituality that forces the untamed (and sometimes unwilling) to do it’s bidding. In Jephcott’s world, the spirit always wins, and those who choose the folly of greed, conflict, or arrogance are spared no mercy from her cutting painterly will, or the destiny that’s owed them.
Susan Jephcott is presently living and working in Vankleek Hill, Ontario, a Victorian-era village located between Ottawa and Montreal. (With thanks to Randy Cole for this biography). There, she operates the Three Owls Studio & Gallery, a private venue where you can view Jephcott’s work on appointment only.

Susan Jephcott held three workshops on the themes of youth and diversity with grade 4 and 8 students as well as with patrons of the Three Owls Studio & Gallery.

Désirée Perras

Désirée Perras is passionate about art. Since her young age, art has always been a part of her. Her spare time was spent learning to draw and to paint. Dry pastels allowed her to express the beauty of Canadian landscapes. Today, she paints with acrylics and water colours. She is currently experimenting with abstract art by inserting words into her artwork to communicate personal messages. Colour is to her, fundamental to art. Her creative process starts with colour.

Désirée has been working in graphic arts and multimedia for the Federal Government since 1989.
She studied graphic and visual arts at the St. Lawrence College, at the Université du Québec en Outaouais and at the Ottawa School of Art.

One of her works, comprising of four canvases, is currently exhibited at the Brasserie Étienne Brulé in Embrun.
