Rita Milton was born and raised in Oxford County, Ontario having studied with local and international teachers, she is now an award winning professional artist.

Her abstracted stylized method to creates unique works that are sure to make you smile.
You’ve probably seen her work, she has worked on several murals for the Town of Ingersoll and the City of Woodstock.

Look for her works at the Woodstock Art Gallery, Red Canoe Gallery, Artists of Oxford and the Oxford Creation Connections Incorporation.

George Conklin paints landscapes in oil. An avid outdoorsman, with a life long interest in colour and design, it is natural for his subjects to come from Nature’s inspiration, his impressionistic landscapes are alive with light and the drama of Ontario’s northern landscape

Though he has studied extensively since, George is faithful to the philosophies and techniques with attention paid to light, air and atmospheric perspective, imparted by his mentor the late George Nelson a retired designer/ painter who had studied at the famed “Arts Students League” in New York City.
