Anna Green: Artist’s Statement
I was exposed to the world of visual art at young age, in my birthplace, Melbourne,
Australia. My mother painted in oils and sculpted, and she often encouraged me to
paint along with her. After high school, I went to Ontario College of Art in Canada,
where my focus was fine art. I had intended to carry on in my education to become a
medical illustrator (as I also had an interest in health care), however I got sidetracked
and moved to the Bahamas. There, I married and had two little girls. During my six
years on the island, I painted in watercolor and sold my work through local tourist
galleries. I eventually moved back to Canada and became absorbed with the
demands of everyday life. In the last 15 years, I have been fortunate to have the time
to delve more deeply into my art and yoga career. I believe that my diverse life
experiences (relationships, travel, career changes and personal interests) are
represented in my paintings. My style is considered “whimsical” ….a reflection of my
thoughts, dreams and hopes for a happier world.
While I still love the challenge of portrait work, a more animated portrayal of the
female image has become my trademark. My “feminine spirits” have evolved from
fairies, yogis and mermaids to women with attitude (the girlfriend’s series)..all
symbolizing the inner strength and grace of the female. My paintings often evoke a
smile or a chuckle, as the viewer can often see elements of themselves in each.
The work that I currently create and exhibit is a continuation on the theme of the
Feminine Spirit, with a current influence of my life on the Sunshine Coast of beautiful

Arlene Littler: Artist’s Statement
I began using the computer as an artist tool in 1995. My style is an innovative combination of my photography, scanned imagery and found material. Equipped with unlimited tools I was able to achieve images that could tell a story.
My love for words, fonts, and graphic elements has compelled me to take the next step in my artist endeavors by exploring other mediums to express my creativity. My recent work in this exhibition shows the evolution.
My art has evolved into an array of products namely, greeting cards, custom one of a kind collage memory books and mixed media collages.
