EDUCATION: Holly Carr is a graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

-Ventured into theatre, beginning with designing for “Little Lame Prince” and “When Dinosaurs Dine by Moonlight” both of which were productions of Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.
-painted live with an adlibbed monologue in Will Power Theatre’s production of “Private Views” performed live in the main gallery of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, where her dialogue with the audience was woven into a painting she created on the spot as well as the three one act plays taking place in the gallery space.
– performed with numerous musicians including a cross Canada tour with writer storyteller Stuart Mclean and the Vinyl Cafe. During these events Holly Carr paints live on large vertical panels of silk.
-Recently, Carr was invited to perform in Singapore, with world renowned violinist Min Lee, as well as performances in Ottawa where she painted with the National Art Center Symphony.

ARTIST: James Corwin
RESIDES: Montana, USA
BIOGRAPHY: James Corwin designs distinct oil paintings through a unique balance of gestural paint techniques and precise detail. Primarily focused on wildlife Corwin aims to engage the viewer through his dynamic compositions that stir emotion.
With an appreciation for both fine detail and contemporary art, Corwin exquisitely marries the two in each painting with detailed subjects and loosely constructed backgrounds often exposing the underpainting and raw canvas.
Corwin gathers inspiration and references from his frequent travels to exotic destinations around the world. A trip to South Africa opened his eyes to threats of poaching on wildlife. Frequent trips back to Africa have allowed James to work directly with conservation efforts and starting the first Rhino Breeding Project.
Corwin has established himself as a widely collected artist at a very young age. His artwork is collected nationally and internationally as he participates in prestigious exhibitions and auctions throughout the year. He is the youngest artist to ever participate in both Dallas Safari Club and Safari Club International in Las Vegas.
Typically he paints 10-12 hours per day, 7 days a week. He also has two studios overlooking the white sandy beaches of Long Island, NY and located in Lakeside, MT overlooking Flathead Lake and the Swan Mountain Range.
By providing utmost quality and innovation in his painting, Corwin creates a sustaining legacy of integrity and loyalty in his art and conservation.
Corwin was born June 24, 1991 in Honolulu, HI.
Corwin was voted 2nd Best Artist of the Flathead 2015.

First-ever Featured Artist at the prestigious Pacific Rim Wildlife Art Show.
He’s hiked and camped in mountains and forests throughout the northwest U.S., Central America and East Africa. He knows the lakes and mountains as well as he knows the plains and deserts, not to mention almost all the creatures who live there, from the smallest bird to the largest elephant. And he will paint them on whatever size canvas suits them best. In addition to his peaceful views of animals in their natural habitats, he is also known for his paintings’ many different sizes and shapes—each chosen to best suit his perfectly balanced images of wildlife and wilderness.
