Additional Information
Nicolette Valikoski grew up among the temperate rainforests and storm-battered beaches of a small island off the west coast of Canada. This wild and gorgeous corner of the world shaped her earliest artistic expression and today inspires much of her work. Nicolette uses only palette knives to apply her unique, sculptural layers of oil paint which result in striking creations with rich texture and incredible depth. Her bright, dynamic explorations of nature are informed by her passion for contemporary interior design, resulting in paintings that evoke a unique sensation of being both indoors and out. Nicolette paints out of her light-filled studio in Vancouver Island�s beautiful Comox Valley. Her work hangs in the homes of her collectors all across the world.

Additional Information
Sharon began her education career teaching art, followed by 33 years as a counsellor. During that time, she devoted her creative energy to designing costumes for theatrical productions. Since moving to the Comox Valley in 2012, she has immersed herself in painting, achieving Active Status with the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her paintings have been displayed in galleries and homes throughout Canada and internationally. She remains committed to community support by donating paintings to various organizations, curating the annual CVA Art Show in the Comox Valley Airport, and managing the ARTWRX Studio + Gallery. Using acrylic paint, collage, and mark-making tools, her semi-abstract, expressionist paintings aim to convey the energy and soul of the image. She measures success of the work by engaging viewers, who are compelled to spend time with her work and to ask questions. She hopes the gratitude she feels for being able to create, comes through in the paintings. Over time, her artistic process has evolved as she experiments with innovative techniques on canvas and wood panel.

Additional Information
Living in the Comox Valley for the past 50 years has brought Shea Kotilla all kinds of joy. She has lived much of her life outdoors, skiing, biking, hiking, kayaking, and gardening. Three children are born to her and raised here, and to Kotilla, they are the best of it. Attending to art has come and gone over the years. Shea was an A student in junior and senior high school, but only in art! (the rest... not so much). She attended leisure art classes a time or two when her kids were growing. Finally, Kotilla rented space in a shared studio, and in the last five years, she has devoted more and more time to it until retiring in late 2022 when she became a full-time practicing artist. Art is deeply lodged in her bones, and Kotilla can hardly help but dive in... for the love of art.
