About Deborah Colston
Deborah Colston carries a camera to capture her life’s journey. She thinks of her photos as a visual journal. Whether she is in the garden, canoeing or hiking, her camera is always handy. Deborah finds the human form a powerful subject. As a one of a kind figurative artist she is equally comfortable sculpting with stone and air-drying clay, polymer, carving antler, using cloth or found objects to create whimsical or realistic figures. A new joy she is delighted to explore is intuitive oil painting. She is a graduate of Ryerson’s Fashion Design program and a member of Creative Doll Artists. Deborah lives in rural Ontario surrounded by cornfields and a river. She can be reached at [email protected] or 905-985-8919.

About Len Holmes
Growing up as a farm boy I was introduced to the natural world at an early age. I spent 40 years working in the city and every chance I got, I returned to explore and enjoy life in a country setting. After retirement I moved back to the country to realize that I had much to learn about the wild and beautiful world around us. Through the camera lens I am able to capture a moment in time that can be recorded and shared. This is a truly inspirational experience for me and my hope is to encourage others to appreciate the wonderful world the good Lord made for us.
