Robert Hinves

Robert Hinves

The artistic development of Robert Hinves began with pencil drawing — before he graduated into oils, pen, ink and watercolour. His natural talent was fuelled by the formal training he received at Danforth Tech, and a further year of study at the Ontario College of Art.

As a young boy, Hinves was fascinated by nature and the world around him, and nowadays he loves to browse the Ontario countryside to collect photographic subject material for future paintings. His work always depicts the beauty of the surrounding landscapes, and over the years, Hinves has received a great many awards for creating it.

He regularly exhibits his paintings in art shows, both near and far, including: the Art Guild of Scarborough Spring and Fall Shows, the Pine Ridge Juried Art Show in Pickering, Pelham Art Festival in Fonthill, McMichael Fall Juried Art Show in Kleinburg, the Kawartha Arts Festival in Fenelon Falls, Art by the Lighthouse in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and the Rideau Valley Art Festival in Westport. With all the travelling he has to do to get to these shows, it’s certainly a good thing that he’s been retired for some time now.

Robert is currently vice-president of the PineRidge Arts Council, and a longtime member of the Art Guild of Scarborough; some of his landscapes may be seen at

Ramona Marquez-Ramraj

Ramona Marquez-Ramraj

Ramona Marquez-Ramraj is an emerging self-taught visual artist that works with acrylic and other media that give her abstract and landscape art depth and texture. A native of Venezuela, her paintings feature bright, energetic colors; a reflection of her background.

The artist started to display her art in 2018 at various art juries shows where she received an award of excellence for her painting.

Ramona has donated a few of her paintings to promote students education. She lives in Pickering with her husband, two children and her dog.
