Growing up in a small town, surrounded by century-old estates and weather-worn farms, Linda Henderson has come to appreciate the architecture of eastern Ontario. Capturing these historic buildings help link us to our past. “As I work my mind wonders to what sounds must have echoed within those walls”…
Linda moved to Perth with her parents at a young age and has always loved to draw. Recognized by her teachers she was offered special art instruction growing up. She graduated, with distinction, from the Fine arts program at St. Lawrence College, in Kingston, and went on to take several other related courses throughout her life.
She has participated in several art shows, including a sold-out show at the Bracegirdle gallery in Perth, and has produced many commissions that can be found in Florida, Scotland, Granada, Toronto and places in between.
Linda’s passion for drawing is evident in her finished works. She has always enjoyed creating realistic pieces that challenge her ability – relishing the experience that comes with each new work of art. Watercolour is her preferred choice of medium but she also uses ink, graphite, coloured pencil and acrylic quite extensively. Linda also works as a graphic designer/illustrator in Kemptville and lives with her family in Port Elmsley.

ANN (WARDLE) FULLERTON
Ann was born in Brampton, Ontario. Her father was a designer on the Avro Arrow, but he died of a heart attack when Ann was only 15months old. Her mother remarried when Ann was 6. The family moved to Perth when she was 10. Ann now lives in Grand Bend and Mississauga but returns to Perth almost every year to reunite with friends.
Growing up in Perth, Ontario , has left an imprint on her heart that is reflected in her art. Ann stated, “I often wish that I could step back in time and I guess my work reflects that.” Old stone architecture and rustic barns are featured in many of her landscapes while antique vases and lace are favored subject matter in a still life. Nostalgia is only one aspect of her repertoire, she is a diverse artist who can bring any subject matter to life. Her landscapes evoke a mood and atmosphere while her floral paintings are bold, and masterful.
Her background as an award-winning art director / designer gives her work a strong sense of design and composition. Her work has appeared in various publications such as Canadian Gardening, Homemakers, and she was the featured artist in a 12-month calendar for Peel Mutual Insurance.
Ann has taught watercolour for the past 20 years at a number of locations: Sheridan College, Visual Arts Mississauga, and for various art groups throughout Southern Ontario.
