NEW ART SHOW AT THE CHAMBERS GALLERY, ALMONTE, ON
Stephanie Huckabone has always been interested in art and art history and took courses in high school and at university. However, it wasn’t until an evening mixed-media class that she rediscovered her desire to paint an explore different mediums. She continues to grow and learn through work-shops, peer support and local classes.
In 2004, she became a member of Ottawa Mixed Media Artists and often takes part in group shows, artist retreats and professional development activities. She has been on the executive of OMMA for he past 8 years and is currently President of OMMA.
Having grown up in the Ottawa Valley, nature has always been very important to Stephanie. She often depicts local water, rocks, trees and mountains in her art.
More recently, however, she became familiar with the rocky, harsh landscape of Newfoundland. She tries to capture the beauty and colour of that northern Atlantic island that draws her family to its shores every summer.
For Canada’s 150th anniversary, she has decided to celebrate each province and territory with a canvas depicting the flora, fauna, images and symbols connected to it. She makes her own stamps and stencils, which she uses to give texture and provide images within my paintings. She says it was a very fun and educational experience for her and she hopes you enjoy discovering the uniqueness and beauty of each province of the wonderful and diverse country of ours – Canada.
