" My work is elemental, with a focus on nature and the forces with which humanity has to contend. I search for a distinctive atmosphere from the immensity and grandeur of the plains to the human mark etched upon it. With both a plaintive and expressive palette of light and movement I draw both from my past, a process I call "Memory Polaroids", and from the present day of all that surrounds me. My medium is oil on canvas...and a guitar”.

Born in 1983, Danny is a Lethbridge born photographer with an innate fascination of the natural world. Driven by his love of astronomy, Danny often seeks inspiration beneath the night sky. Danny’s artistic expression is deep-rooted in the aesthetics of surrealism; captivated by what dwells in the darkness rather than in the light, his experimental approach helps him expose surreal qualities in the real world. Using only available light for the bulk of his work, Danny enjoys the challenge of transforming ordinary landscapes into dramatic displays of nature’s brilliance.
Growing up, Leanna often wished she had a talent for painting - but what she saw in her head never seemed to translate onto paper. She longed to be able to capture the ethereal light of an impressionist painting or the emotive impact of an abstract.
Photography has provided a vehicle for her to express her lifelong love of art and to interpret the world around her in the way that she always wished to. Each image is a possibility and a revelation. Each has its own voice. She hopes they speak to you.
