Some of the Participating Artists

City Centre Artist Lodge

Hello! My name is Maxine Woogman. I create colourful, affordable, abstract original art, primarily on paper but also on canvas and wood panels.

I’m an intuitive abstract artist which means I paint from my heart, body, and soul. I never have any idea of what is going to come out of me when I paint. I just grab my paints and brushes/tools and away I go. Painting like this is so freeing – it is a fabulous way to play, process emotions and stay in the present moment.

Many of my smaller and mid sized pieces are perfect for adding that pop of colour – to floating shelves, those weird little wall spaces in a hallway or kitchen, a guest bathroom, on top of a desk or dresser, or wherever the heck you’d like. They also show fabulously in a grid formation in one or two rows.

I truly hope that when one looks at my works, they will be reminded to smile and to know that beauty exists in all shapes, sizes, colours and textures.

Currently, my artwork can be viewed on my instagram account . Feel free to peruse there. I’m also regularly available for studio visits at the City Centre Artist Lodge (at Main and 6th) by appointment and during public/open studio days.

Studio 225, directly under the rooftop City Centre neon sign

A rapidly emerging Vancouver Visual Artist, Paulo OConnor’s noted themes of layered communication and balanced detail emerge from his uncommon treatment of colour and typography across media including illustration, photography, paint, and soon, sculpture. Describing his works as simply compassionate expressions of life’s peripheries, Paulo credits his aesthetic to solo immersions in nature, a beloved grandfather’s lessons on conscious living, and years reconnecting people with wilderness as a marine biologist and outdoor guide. Art finds him facing new fears, attempting the unforeseen, and arriving somewhere unexpected. He honours this chance to live creatively and contribute within the unceded traditional lands and waters of the Coast Salish peoples.

Elana Sigal

City Centre Artist Lodge

Elana has been designing and producing hand-felted artworks since 1992. Her work displays a level of sophistication and an original, unique interpretation of fibre art. Her work is very organic in nature and embodies her love of colour, figure, line, texture and abstract form. She expresses herself through her art in a casual and whimsical manner bringing the viewer a sense of ease, contentment and joy. Her inspiration comes from the historic and tribal process of felt making as well as from African art, Matisse, Klee and Twombly. Marrying her modern sensibility with the ancient form of felt making she creates art pieces which connect us with the natural world.

Felt is an ideal medium for softening, adding warmth and texture while acting as a sound buffer in residential , commercial, spiritual and corporate settings. Pieces can be designed in any size and thickness depending on the site requirements.

In recent years, Elana has discovered her love of photography and the digital image. She has been playing with collage and multi-layer transparencies.
