The juror is artist Anne Swiderski, who grew up living on the outskirts of a small northern town in Ontario where rivers, bogs and marshes cut through large tracts of boreal forest, which left deep impressions on her.  
 
She attended the Ottawa School of Art and Ottawa University, and has exhibited locally, in Montreal, and in New York State. Her paintings can be found in private collections mainly across Canada, but also in the United States and in Germany. She has had artworks purchased by the Government of Canada and local government, and has won several awards, both jury’s and members’ choice.
 
“I use colour, form and shape as a visual dance. When I paint I travel to an inner place of intensity and vibrancy to express nature’s perfect beauty. I feel very connected to nature, but not as something outside of myself.  It’s a feeling of coming home, of immersing myself in life energy, and in the living perfection that it creates.” www.anneswiderski.com
