Member Artists of Imagine That!

The co-op currently consists of members who operate the storefront. Members are also artists whose work is displayed in the store. We volunteer our time and expertise. For us it is a joy to be able to interact with the customers and the other artists, to share our knowledge of art, and to receive feedback from our visitors.

Rag rugs, fabric arts
"I first learned to sew after Santa brought me a tiny working Singer sewing machine when I was about seven years old. I come from a long line of quilters and treasure those that have been created by my grandmothers, an aunt, and my Mom.I began making rag rugs about 25 years ago, inspired by those that used to be in the kitchen at my grandparents' farm. While those were woven on a loom, I chose to crochet mine and took advantage of bags full of fabric scraps to start. "

Mosaics
"The act of transforming little pieces of disparate glass into a 'painting' strikes me as magic. Stained glass offers a glorious colour palette and an equally wide range of textures. I am especially drawn to the reflective nature of glass, the way it creates movement and a feeling of 'aliveness.' "
Joyce Leroux, Stained Glass Joyce Leroux, Director

Stained Glass windows, suncatchers and candleholders
"I enjoy the whole process from designing the pattern to choosing which glass I’m going to use and then putting the whole project together. The end product is always a surprise. There’s always a new piece of glass to be found that inspires you to create something new. The options are endless."
Clare Carver, Silk painting Clare Carver

Hand painted Silk Scarves and Pillows, Art Cards
"I am enjoying finding new ways and things to paint in silk. The advantage of dyes, although more work because they have to be steam set, is that they merge with the fabric (keeping the soft texture), and they are much more vibrant than paints. "
Lynn Bisset, painter Lynn Bisset
