Jeannette Hay | Animal Artist |

Jeannette was born in Montreal, Canada and after many years of travelling and living in other countries she returned to Toronto, Canada where she has been living since 2005.

She studied Fine Arts in the Chantry School of Art, Devon, England and later graduated as a Graphic Designer from George Brown College, Toronto with the St. James Award for “Outstanding Student, with above average marks.” She went on to win the Medallion Award as "Outstanding New Artist" in the Toronto Library competition (Ontario) and received an Honorable Mention in the "Call to Arts!” Juried Visual Art Competition, Los Angeles, (USA), as well her work has been seen on the front cover of The Canadian Arabian Horse News, CD's and books.

Her passion for animals has pulled her focus into the natural world as her subject of choice, eventually becoming exclusively an Animal Artist.

Her work can be found in various private collections both in Europe, Canada and the USA.

About her animal artwork Jeannette says “I endeavour to create a closer feeling of connection between humans and the animals surrounding us and how important it is for us to safeguard and improve the environment we all share.

David Reid

Dave Reid

“WHO’S IN YOUR BACKYARD” is a collection of wildlife photos taken steps away from your backyard all captured locally within Durham Region.

David Reid is a freelance photographer based in Durham Region. David’s pursuit of nature photography in particular has driven him to places that are often overlooked and off the beaten track. Looking for locations that provide a new perspective of how wildlife lives in the wild.

Interested in photography from a young age, David has worked in a range of photographic genres pushing himself and creative norms. He has developed an eye for seeing beauty in the world around us. His style invokes an emotion that draws you in and forces you to ask questions.

David’s goal is to hold your attention and draw you into the world within the image. Colour, lighting, focus and nature's energy are all brought together to deliver the story of that moment.

After all he’s a storyteller.

Photography has always been a passion of mine. From the earliest days I remember the excitement of being able to capture the emotion of a moment in time. It’s that connection between the photograph and the viewer that makes it all worth while.

Over the years as a freelance photographer I’ve learned to connect with the moment and bring it to life in my photos. My goal is to hold your attention and draw you in to the world within the image. The colour, lighting, focus and energy within the image is all brought together to deliver the story of that moment.

You can also see some of Dave's work in September and October at Dentistry on Liverpool.
