Artist: Stephanie Gauvin

Bio: Stephanie is a native of Quebec, Canada. She obtained a fine arts degree at Sherbrooke College in `89. Drawn to the mountains of British Columbia, she moved to the west coast In 1990 where she chose to make her home, with her husband and two children, in the quaint little ski town of Rossland. She has been a full-time artist since 2003.

From her home studio, or out in nature, she illuminates the scenes with her own mix of vivid, rich and bold colours, striving for spontaneity in the brush strokes, looking for a feeling rather than perfection in the details.

Mighty Mouse by Jim Lawrence

< Return to the Silent Art Auction Main Page

Artist: Jim Lawrence

Bio: An ethical photographer and environmentalist, Jim Lawrence strives to present images that instill understanding of our fragile wilderness, and inspire respect for life in endangered ecosystems. Jim’s character was formed from experiences in the wilderness from early childhood. Growing up in the Lardeau Valley afforded opportunities like accompanying a fur trapper on a two-week trek along a remote trap-line when he was thirteen.

Through his photography, Jim aspires to crystallize the character of the animals and considers observation of an animal’s life a profound honor. His patience and acuity is guided by an intention to raise consciousness about the lives of animals and the protection of wilderness habitat. During extended global travels, Jim studied photography formally at the Durban Institute of Technology in South Africa.
