Jasmine Rock

Secretary

Jasmine Rock is a local abstract artist, graphic designer and illustrator, graduating with Honours from the York University/Sheridan Design program in 2016. Jasmine is constantly experimenting with acrylic paint, asking: "What can I make the paint do? What new technique or tool can I try?" Cultivating an exploratory process is just as important to her as the final creation. She likes to use bold, bright colour palettes alongside neutral ones. Currently, she is working on a series in all white using traditional tools such as palette knives and brushes, but also everyday household objects to create texture. She currently works as a receptionist in Mississauga, where she continues to hone her administrative and organizational skills.

Tara Cress

Treasurer

Tara Cress is a local artist, having lived and grown up in Brampton. Her artwork is inspired by wildlife; ranging from detailed pen and ink drawings to textured abstract paintings. While her artistic muses have been wildlife since a very young age, they continue to be her main subject of choice to this day. Her work encourages the viewer to consider their relationship to wildlife and how to capture the animal's essence in a contemporary way.

Beaux Arts has been a driving force for her development and showcasing her work, including having hosted her debut solo art show in 2019. From this, it's no surprise that she enjoys connecting with people and takes great pride in being a part of the local arts community.
