Southern Ontario Visual Artists
Southern Ontario Visual Artists, or SOVA is a small collective of talented artists.
Studio 202 in Alton Mill houses three talented artists, , Robert Chisholm, Lynden Cowan and Daureen Murphy who have become friends over the years, so it was a natural progression to sharing a studio in the beautiful Alton Mill Arts Centre.
All three artists are originally Maritimers, so have a common tie, but that is where the similarity ends.
Robert , working mainly in acrylics, is noted for his impressionistic, intuitive style that with a combination of natural colours, and freedom of brush strokes, allows the painting to evolve.
Daureen is drawn to nature and is also involved with horses so her work reflects her interests and she is mainly a Realist.
Lynden paints mainly with oil on canvas in a Realism style. She is a member of CFS,OSA,SCA,Artists for Conservation, and FCA, and is also represented by the the Circle Foundation of France so has exhibited internationally.Her work is found in many private and corporate collections across North America and Europe.
You are always welcome to come into Studio 202 , and we hope you will stop by to discuss our artwork and the creative process.
