Les Louis | Visual Arts
Bio: Les Louis is a member of the Lower Similkameen Indian Band, part of the Okanagan Nation. He is a vivid artist working in many mediums, ranging from acrylic paintings to traditional hand-drums. Les has recently found a new passion in sculpture and is bringing to life his ideas. His creativity stems from many influences, but none so important as his Culture, Language, Traditions, and Mother Nature. Les is motivated to explore his love for art and portray that in every piece he creates. His passion is expressed in all his works, as he incorporates nature and all its wonders. Les enjoys being able to share his Culture through his artwork, as he draws upon the examples of the Interior Pictograph designs located throughout his Traditional Territory of the Okanagan, as one of his many influences.
Laine Lowe | Visual Arts
Bio: My art includes realistic pieces and mixed media. I love to experiment with combinations of texture, shape, line and color. When I create I go to another place; I am seeking calm serenity. I close the door and listen to soft inspiring music. I get lost in the process of creating. My pieces reflect subjects from my environment, my life. I have a huge appreciation of nature and prefer quiet walks, kayaking and gardening. I work with images using light, reflection and texture to explore the world around me. Most of my pieces are inspired by nature. I take pleasure capturing a moment and presenting it in a new way. I enjoy creating mixed media pieces; using color, texture and shape to tell a story. I feel truly blessed to live in the Okanagan which gives me the inspiration to create. I show my work at the Lake Country Art Gallery, Art Walk and the Carr’s Landing Art Tour. My work is in collections throughout Canada.
