Rebecca Yanovskaya is a graduate from the Illustration program at Sheridan College. Her main focus is creating illustrations in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genres. She is inspired by and frequently illustrates mythological stories, natural forces, and the beauty of the human figure.
While Rebecca’s work began in small sketchbooks it is becoming larger and more ambitious, with gold, floral patterns, and natural materials such as wood panels featuring in her work. Despite most artists in her genre using digital and traditional painting tools, she has made the choice to construct her pieces with ballpoint pen instead. As one of the only primarily ballpoint pen artists working in fantastic realism, her work is easy to identify. A combination of epic scope and moody atmosphere define her signature style, in what can be described as the “Art of the Sublime”.
Rebecca lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

“Reality is a matter of view“, Fennema even knew that before his start into photography in 2007, motivated due his experience and interest in digital artwork he began to work with artistic photography. He learned about the technique of photography and improved his post processing knowledge. All his skills are self-taught and on professional level. This way gave him the chance to develop and improve a free and personal style. Today’s result is atmospheric photo art which submits to his own, self created rules.
Starting with the search for the right motif Fennema transcends natural boundaries. On his photographic trips he travels across Europe where he finds unique treasures to photograph. The focus of his art are „Lost Places“ – Deserted places and buildings, stripped of their functions. Whether if it’s a hidden fairytale castle, rust-eaten industrial sites or former mental hospitals – Fennema tells their stories, good as well as bad ones. He captures the ailing motifs in a touching world, somewhere between the past and today in vibrant and living pictures.
The artistic play with modern architecture also belongs to his focus. The geometry of the buildings, their shapes and lines he uses as a kind of tool. The resulting work is focused on excerpts of them – revealing new perspectives – snatched from their wholeness.
Each of his pictures is the result of the confrontation and connection with a place, it’s atmosphere and it’s history. From this impact Fennema shapes his concept of an image – Long before he places his camera and plans all the following steps according to his imagination. Special and unexpected compositions, full of atmosphere, the absence of artificial light and resulting natural atmospheric lighting effects characterize his work.

Inspired by the works of Alberto Seveso, Chris Slabber created his own series of paint in water sculptures. These were exhibited at KKNK 2014 at a gallery called Art Karoo.
He writes: “The idea behind this series was to show that from Destruction comes Creation. As the paint falls there is a constant point of creation, but at the same time it destroys itself.”
