“My creative exploration began in my childhood, making fantastical hybrid creatures using old toys and a tube of glue. Today I make animals and creatures from mostly found and recycled metal; transforming every day objects into detailed, sculptural artworks.
My commissions include sculpture, architectural installations and furniture. And many of my public artworks are on display in several locations throughout the world.” Alan Williams

"I grew up in a small rural town in Newfoundland, I have had a love for drawing and art since I was a child, and sold my first drawing at the age of 14. (Sold a design for T-Shirts to be sold at a sporting event) A couple years in high school I was a teacher's assistant for art classes, which was a great experience. I studied fine arts, and animation. There I learned to work in different mediums, such as painting, sculpture, metal work, photography, pottery, and printmaking. However after graduating I went back to the medium I love the most. Pencil drawing and sketches.
After graduating I've been commissioned to do many murals, and portraits for people. At some points I have gone a couple years without doing a single piece of art. However I am able to pick it right up again, just like riding a bike. As most artists, I've never relied totally on my art to make a living (I've had to work many "big boy" jobs to pay the bills.)
I currently live in Prince Edward Island and have a lovely wife and two beautiful little girls. I work at a local hospital, however I am still frequently drawing portraits for people as a side business and occasionally painting murals."
Zemer Peled was born in Kibbutz, Israel.
"Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of nature and memories, identity and place. Her works are formed of thousand of ceramic shards constructed into large-scale/small-scale sculptures and installations." Zemer's website bio. http://www.zemerpeled.com
"Lesley's Dill's images and constructions explore the nature of the body and its clothing. In particular, her work uses metaphoric imagery to explore the role of language in cloaking or revealing the human soul."Landfall Press
British snow artist Simon Beck. Each piece can take up to 11 hours to complete and spans 100mx100m. Simon finds a blank canvas in the snowy mountains and begins etching out his intricate, mathematical patterns in the snow. He has left his mark several times in Banff, Alberta.
"Simon Beck is the world’s first and most famous "Snow Artist". He graduated in Engineering from Oxford University but decided later on to leave his office job in order to become a cartographer.
In December 2004, after a day of skiing, he got the idea to draw a star on the small frozen lake in front of his place. His sense for orientation in combination with his passion for outdoor and physical activities inspired him to complete a snow creation. The day after, looking down fromthe ski lift; he was impressed by the result. After the next snowfall, he repeated the exercise by creating an evenmore complex drawing. Snow Art was born." From Simon's bio.
Italian set designer, sculptor and artist Edoardo Tresoldi is well known for his large scale wire mesh creations in public places.
"Edoardo Tresoldi plays with the transparency of mesh and with industrial materials to transcend the time-space dimension and narrate a dialogue between Art and World, a visual summary which reveals itself in the fade-out of physical limitations.
Mixing classical and modern language, he generates a third one, strongly contemporary." Taken from Edoardo's bio.
