Southern Ontario Visual Artists
Southern Ontario Visual Artists , or SOVA is a small collective of talented artists. Robert Chisholm, Lynden Cowan and Charlene Nickels have become friends over the years, so it was a natural progression to sharing a studio in the beautiful Alton Mill Arts Centre.
All three artists are originally Maritimers, so have a common tie, but that is where the similarity ends.
Robert , working mainly in acrylics, is noted for his impressionistic,intuitive style that with a combination of natural colours, and freedom of brush strokes, allows the painting to evolve.
Charlene is drawn to the beautiful, sensitive medium of watercolours . Mainly a Realist , the subject matter of her paintings are varied, but many have a strong connection to Prince Edward Island.
Lynden paints mainly with oil on canvas in a Realism style. Her work is found in many private and corporate collections across North America and Europe.
You are always welcome to come into Studio 202 , and we hope you will stop by to discuss our artwork and the creative process.
