Check out these videos of artists discussing their work and their love of nature
Emily Bi is a talented gardener and artist. She grows over 250 varieties of peonies in her remarkable garden, Ginkgo Footprints in Annan Ontario. Her paintings of peonies are on display at Grey Gallery in Owen Sound as part of the exhibition 'Drawn to Nature'.
Vera Dernovsek discusses her passionate love of flowers, and her life long interest in painting them in both oil and watercolour.
Iris Lucas discusses the genesis of her painting River Plants, and the inspiration she takes from the river adjacent to her Owen Sound home.
As a biologist, Sarah McComb Turbitt is interested in the ecology of plants and both her paintings incorporate bees. She discusses her technique of layering paint to create great depth and vibrancy of colour. A portion of the proceeds from her sales supports Wildlife Preservation Canada.

Raquell Yang talks about the special meaning of lilies in her life, and her trademark technique of using gold leaf in her paintings.
