Ella does freelance illustrations for educational purposes, as well as children storybooks. Her line and wash illustrations have a watercolor feel to them, with strong, vibrant colors. She prefers brushes, dip-pens and watercolor paper to computerized illustrations. She has a passion for the West Coast of South Africa, where she resides. The wide open spaces of where river, sea and land meets, offer her a rich variety of subjects to paint. • A routine day will find her taking care of her family in the morning before driving round the countryside after lunch to find an inspiring scene. Using her own large handcrafted canvases, she will start off en plein air, taking photographs and memorize the fleeting moments light create. When the notorious coastal wind begins to blow she heads back to her studio and continues working well into the night, finishing the artwork by combining memory, photographs and creativity. She enjoys detecting and creating patterns whether they are of water-reflections, architecture, or crop fields. • Her paintings have found their way to private collections all across the world including countries like the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and England. • “Art is a science, color a field that would take one years and years to discover and master. Art principles are meant to be followed and improvised, not neglected and abandoned for the sake of “everything goes”. It is a rewarding and fun, yet serious business. Art collectors put their trust in you, and that trust has to be nurtured. It is hard to make a living from art; I suppose it has to be a calling of sorts

My name is Patrick Lavigne, and I live in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, and I have had an interest in writing since I was 8. Ever since I have been writing short stories, that grew into novels and became life long projects for me. I am proud to say that I have three published works with two more yet to be put into the post production stages. They are called: Invaders in the Dark, No Limits, No Fear, No Mercy, and the New World, the next two are called Michigan Central: which are the first two parts of a novel series Michigan Central & Michigan Central: Living on the Edge, with the third book still in the works after those two are released. I also happen to have another novel series in the works which I will fill more info about when the first Novel of that series has been completed. I also took a semester in animation, only to discover it was not the avenue I wanted to pursue for the next 4 years. I did however learn some tricks to help me be a better artist as well, and have thought of doing some graphic novels in the future.
