Miya Turnbull works in a variety of mediums including mask making, painting, photography and video and animation. Miya grew up on a farm near Edmonton, Alberta. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge and moved to Montreal, Quebec for a couple of years before settling in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Norman Takeuchi is a painter. Shortly after graduating from the Vancouver School of Art, he moved to London, England, for one year to concentrate on painting. While there, a chance encounter with a gallery owner resulted in his first solo exhibition. Back in Canada, he found employment in Ottawa as a graphic and exhibition designer. He now devotes all his time to painting colourful canvasses.
