John Morgan

John is a professional photographer who has been making and printing photographs for the last five decades. “Photography is my passion. I attended the West of England College of Art, on the subjects of art and photography. I started in the digital workflow, first scanning negatives, and grew with the digital art over the years. Interests such as travel, nature and portraits have all been driven my desire to capture the moments for time. I have also, on many assignments, done product photography. I am available to photograph the work of artisans who are offering their creations online. Quality images are essential to marketing online.”

Christine Marshall


One of Canada’s foremost painters. Her Nature paintings have captured the attention of animal lovers everywhere. Few artists on the contemporary scene have achieved the level of success or the international acclaim her work has received. Christine creates breathtaking original paintings with acrylic on canvas with great detail, with exceptional artistry and with real emotion. Christine was born in London, England and showed an interest in art at an early age. Large and bold mushroom themes were her first subjects, in the mid 1970’s, that the Galleries in Ontario recognized and collected. Mushroom themes have remained her trademark to this day.

Michelle Rose

Rural Canadian and British Landscape paintings
Born just outside of London, England, in the beautiful rolling hills of Essex County, Michele Rose has been using her creative forces from the young age of ten. In 1982, she moved to Canada and studied at Ontario College of Art. Michele experimented with many styles and media throughout her post graduate years. She soon discovered her one true love, painting inspirational landscapes, florals and abstract works. Her paintings depict the quaintness of Michele\’s homeland while celebrating the vastness of Canada\’s beauty. Her primary goal is to create peaceful, calming landscapes, into which the viewer can escape from the hectic demands of everyday life.

Ian Burchall

The Urban Country Chairs design has evolved over the last 40 years. I have spent as a chair maker and furniture designer. My earlier chair designs were more traditional. My new chairs combine a more contemporary look with the learned and practiced craftsmanship methods I have always used. The Urban Country Chair incorporates the clean and open lines of modern furniture design while capturing the elegance of older chair designs. These elegant yet sturdy chairs are both lightweight and comfortable. Bentwood frames, made from single pieces of oak, and the appealing weave of the fibre splint seating, set these chairs apart, making them a unique and appealing feature in any city or country setting.

Springwater Woodcraft

Springwater Woodcraft began as a small woodworking shop at the home Grant and Tricia Lloyd in 1992 and has grown over the years to become one of Ontario’s leading suppliers of solid wood home accents. Today we have a staff of about 15 woodworkers, servicing retail stores across Canada from a 14,000 sq ft facility.  We continue to be a family-run business that maintains the values and personal service of that tiny home-based shop.

We offer a line of over 100 Early Canadian-style furniture and decorative items, all of which are made with solid North American white pine—no veneers, MDF, or particle boards are used.

Finishes are chosen from our palette of antique-inspired colours, then distressed with hand-rubbed care for a comfortable lived-in look.  Our dedication to quality and value, along with timely and accurate deliveries has earned us the respect of our dealers and their customers.

Springwater Woodcraft is an environmentally friendly company, using wood sourced only from sustainably-managed North American forests.
