Buffalo Lucy Jewelry – Julie Morris
Originally an Alberta girl, always torn between her love for the prairies and her love for the mountains, Julie Morris found herself embracing her prairie-loving soul during her 15-year stint in Lawrence, Kansas USA. It was there that Buffalo Lucy Jewelry was born. When the opportunity arose to return to her beloved homeland of Canada in 2012 (and beautiful Vancouver, BC at that!) she jumped at the chance!
Julie strives to create heirloom quality sterling silver pieces that are unique, bold, and expressive. While much of her work is one-of-a-kind, inspired by the natural stones she uses in her striking rings, necklaces, and earrings, she also offers a number of made-to-order works including bangles, earrings, and wedding bands (a favorite!).
Buffalo Lucy jewelry is marked by a rustic yet graceful aesthetic and has been described as everything from “Industrial medieval” to “Punk baroque.”
Available pieces can be found on her website, but she also does custom work. Contact her to set up a meeting (online, or in-person in Studio 2).
Cathy Larkin, Painter
Cathy’s artistic side is a contradiction to her day to day life. A boring accountant by day … an emerging local artist by night.
Originally from Ontario, she graduated with a diploma in Interior Design. She has lived in Hawaii, Arizona and finally Vancouver. Each offered unique lifestyles, landscapes and architecture. No matter where she lived art was the constant. She works mainly in watercolour & acrylic.
Laurie M. Landry, Visual Artist
Laurie Monique Landry is a visual artist working in drawing and painting with oil, acrylic, and mixed media. She has completed Fine Arts Techniques at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, BC in March 2008. She also has completed training in life drawing with Timothy Stotz & Michelle Tully of Studio Escalier in Paris, France in December 2010.
Her first art course was watercolour painting with BC artist Edward Epp at the Island Mountain School of Art, in Wells, BC in 1979, and has continued to pursue her love of drawing and painting throughout her life. Two of the biggest highlights in her recent trip to Paris was training inside the Montmartre studio that was once the studio of Suzanne Valadon and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec; and being able to study in the Louvre everyday.
Laurie is currently living and working in Vancouver & Wells, BC. She operates her business, “Cartier & Bailey Creative Studio” in which she also excels in graphic design and picture framing.
