Albert Ho

Albert Ho has resided in Niagara-on-the-Lake for seven years. He was born in Malaysia and came to Canada as a young man. He worked as an engineer for many years before retiring and moving to NOTL. Initially, he turned to art as a therapeutic activity for grief recovery after losing his wife and then continued to paint because he discovered that he truly enjoyed it. He has been painting for three years and has taken classes in various places with artists such as Anne Reimer, Susan Wintrop, Patricia Haftar, and Julie Ponesse. His years as an engineer have helped him to develop an “artistic eye” with a bent for accuracy as is apparent in his paintings. He has exhibited his artwork at the Pumphouse, has participated in Parkway Artists’ Guild shows, and was part of a recent exhibit Brush Strokes at the Community Centre. Today, he is happy to delve into all types of subject matter and most mediums as he considers himself to be a novice artist and is still learning.

While living in England for 13 years, 2 years in the United States and 8 years in Singapore, I attended various art schools and broadened my use of art materials and subjects. All my travels and experiences have had a positive effect on the way I paint today. It is important to “learn as much as you can from others but still have the courage to make it your own.

Peggy King
Peggy King

As my first love since childhood, sketching and drawing, took a back seat to family life after high school, I found my creative expression in cake decorating and teaching all manner of confectionery arts from my home for many years. I did enjoy an occasional watercolour class but had not picked up brushes and paints for over 20 years when, in 2008, I decided I no longer wanted a dedicated schedule. Attending local classes whenever possible, I am mostly self-taught and enjoy working in watercolour, acrylics and wet-on-wet oils with nature scenes from my wanderings becoming my main inspirations.

I am enjoying retirement in the Niagara area after a 35-year career in Education. As a teacher and administrator with the North York and Peel Boards of Education, there was never time to pursue creative venues.

Initially, I became a member of the Canadian Doll Artists and enjoyed creating and entering competitions with one of a kind fabric figures.

John MacInnes
John MacInnes

Some people collect photos and make scrap books chronicling growing up. I have chosen to paint pictures of some memories that are buried and have come to the surface. For instance, Lassie, our collie dog, would sometimes chase one of the cows at the farm we used to visit in the summers. One day a cow stood her ground protecting her calf and Lassie had to back down.

Cathy Peters
Cathy Peters

The art I create is a soulful and interactive expression of life around me and reflects the subject and feeling of the moment. The process “from soul to hand” is my attempt to express those moments on paper or canvas.
As an artist, my goal is to create a feeling in a painting that reflects an interpretation of moods, emotions and artistic individuality and finally, to rely on the viewer to complete the visual interpretation.

Alexandra (Cindy) Sheridan

I’ve always had the passion and desire to paint, but never had the time. But now since I’m semi-retired from Real Estate everything has changed. We live in such a beautiful and historic region with so much natural beauty that I want to paint everything. The Niagara region is so blessed with not only the Falls, but an abundance of historic sites, parks and trails, rivers, lakes and beautiful skies and sunsets that not only surround us, but connects us all to life. Having spent time in exotic destinations and photographed and painted there only deepens my desire to learn to paint well. My long term goal is to become proficient enough to give back in a meaningful way through art.
