Her work is known for its vibrant colours and playful spirit. Also in this show is Ktee Brown from Moncton, NB, who works in both water colour and acrylic paint. The third artist, Lisa Martin, from Amherst, NS, captures local plant life in glass in a 20 hour firing process creating work which she calls Fossil Glass.
