Jasper Coulombe, member
jewelry, silk dyeing, wearable accessories and wall art.
Growing up, Jasper was always transfixed by natural beauty: the colours, textures and forms throughout nature, seemingly chaotic yet intricate in pattern. She admired art in all its forms and it became a part of her life, her greatest passion. Taking risks, investing her time and emotions, she began to change with the art she was creating. Exquisite stones, like Ammolite with its vast history became a focal point for many of Jasper’s pieces. The rainbow of colours served as an inspiration for her work with silk, which became a new medium of expression for her after studying with a master silk painter in Port Angeles, Washington.
GIRLY BITS COSMETICS
Girly Bits Cosmetics, member
With a fascination for colours and textures that translated into an impressive collection of nail polishes, Pam was always searching for that special colour that she could see in her head but never find on a shelf. It was a natural transition into a kitchen chemist that lead Pam to begin to start experimenting and mixing her own polishes in 2009. Feeling ever braver and more creative with each colour that emerged that was exactly as she had imagined it, she continued to mix, create and share her creations, until the release of her first collection, Sea’s The Day, in September 2011. Girly Bits Cosmetics continues to hand blend and pour nail lacquer in a small workshop in Kingsville, Ontario. Each and every shade in the Girly Bits collection is a personal expression that Pam is thrilled to send to fans all over the world.

Dave Fife, member
painter: watercolours, acrylics
David Fife was born in Chatham, ON in December 1951, were he lived until moving to Windsor, ON in 2001. While in Chatham he attended various public schools, where he developed a passion for drawing. His school project drawings is where he began developing his skills and passion for his art. Later in high school, he began to enjoy painting in a different subject matter. This style was inspired from subject matters, from the likes of Dali. After high school he took a cartooning course in Kitchener, ON. and found it exciting, but then realized he wasn’t going to make a career out of it. Over the years he started experimenting with different mediums, pencil and Indian inks and moving on to watercolours and acrylics, where found his passion. His style of painting comes from his heart. Taking a simple subject and create a warm feeling for everyone to experience from his art. As his passion to paint developed, his family and friends encouraged him to show others his work. With the thanks to them, it leads us to now.
