CAMF is, among other things, both juried and judged. See below for last year's winners.
We are pleased to announce this year's judges:
Drawing, painting, sculpting, or just plain working with her hands has been a part of Terese’s life since
early on. As her interests grew and her skills developed, she took numerous classes in a variety of arts
and crafts sessions, and in 1987 tried her hand at stained glass. “Even after 20-odd years, I still can’t
get enough of this fantastic medium” is her gleeful exclamation. Recently, she has been exploring the art
of Intaglia (sandblasting) and combining both mediums into some of her favourite pieces.
Felicity worked for the Simcoe County School Board for many years. She now spends much of her time
working with the Great Northern Exhibition. She is a fibre artist working in many forms of fibre
art: sewing, knitting, crocheting, and other fibre crafts.
Maureen Shaughnessy, AOCA
Maureen studied at The Ontario College of Art and Design and started her career as an illustrator/designer,
working at several large newspapers, latterly as Associate Art Director at the Toronto Star. She spent
many years illustrating children’s books, working primarily with educational publishers and drawing
material and inspiration from her children, friends’ children and family pets. Since moving to the
Georgian Bay area Maureen devotes her time primarily to painting.
Paulette received a certificate in Fine Art Fundamentals from Sheridan College. She added to that
knowledge with practice workshops in Oakville and Collingwood. She is known for both her sculptural work
and painting. Her work has been part of Art on the Street in Collingwood and is currently at the Marsh
Street Gallery in Clarksburg. In a recent BMFA juried show, her painting "Walking on Water" won 1st Prize.
In the late 70’s I was a student in the Sheridan College School of Design program and studied drawing & painting
under Ann Ziegler, Helen Lucas & Margot Fischer. Although my career direction was in education & training, after
I retired I fortunately rediscovered my passion for painting.
I have discovered that, for me, painting is a combination of exploration and intuition. My medium is primarily
watercolour. My process often starts with washes, allowing the paint to mix and flow naturally resulting in an
abstract vision to which I then add details and dimension. My goal is always to create visual and emotional depth
in my paintings by capturing the glorious, mercurial properties of watercolours. I love the fluidity of watercolour
and use them to evoke mystical abstract florals. My recent adventures involve using this medium in unique and
unconventional ways e.g. watercolour on canvas and aqua board and mixing media. I strive to have luminous, vibrant,
and vivid paintings created by using complex combination of creative techniques.
Maureen studied at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art School for three years and the Three School Art
Workshops in Toronto for four years. She has also studied art extensively in the United States.
She has done work in many mediums, i.e., pastels, portraits, watercolour, mixed medium , oils, acrylic,
and whatever she can find. She has donated dozens of paintings to just about every fundraising venue
known to man.
Maureen judged CAMF for the past few years here In Collingwood for the BMFA. Her work can be seen at Boathouse
Studio (hers), Collingwood, and also at Golf View Studio in The Villages, Florida. Currently she is just
helping artist friends who want some input from her to assist them.
