ABOUT LYDIA SWANSON: Lydia grew up in the cultural collage of Toronto, Ontario. As a child and young adult she developed her talents through dance, music and drawing. Her creativity continued to evolve in her professional educational career. After retiring as an elementary school principal she enrolled in coursework at Sheridan College in Interior Decorating. There she found the study of colour irresistible. Further tutoring under Cora Brittan and at the Dundas School of Art, the Burlington Art Centre, Visual Arts Mississauga, Retreats of Creemore and Haliburton School for the Arts opened her to a variety of techniques to express herself through mixed media using Prisma pencils, watercolour, acrylics, inks, encaustics, gold/silver leaf and collage.
ABOUT MURRAY COX: Murray Cox is an active member and student at VAM. Following his second retirement, he indulged his love of painting with oils. Murray has been an enthusiastic supporter of VAM’s Magic Monday program and can be found each Monday morning with coffee and a paintbrush or pencil in hand!
