Join Mastrius Mentors Nancy Tankersley, Julie deBoer, Caprice Hogg for a LIVE Panel on Finding Your Artistic Style!
Let’s dig into those big questions, like:
- What does it mean to have an artistic style? Is it the subject matter I choose, the way I apply paint, the colours I select?
- What are some things I can explore to help me define my style?
- Do I have to decide between making artwork that sells and making artwork that is true to who I am?
- And, as always, BRING YOUR OWN QUESTIONS! Our Mentors are here to help.
Always LIVE & INTERACTIVE!

Meet Nancy Tankersley
Oil | Acrylic
My years as a portrait painter and studio painter and then as a plein air painter have given me the experience and skills to paint “things”. And often these things had narratives that I could use to evoke an emotion that I could share with the viewer. In recent years I have returned more and more to the studio where I could explore the paints and surfaces and experiment with new painting techniques and tools. My most recent work is more about memory, imagination and emotion.
As Thomas Cole the famous Hudson River landscape artist said “If the imagination is shackled, and nothing is described but what we see, seldom will anything truly great be produced either in Painting or Poetry.” (Thomas Cole to Asher B. Durand, 1838) But without understanding the fundamental principals of painting representationally and having a solid foundation for each painting, trying to express intangible qualities when creating a painting is a hard task. Rules can be broken, but knowing the rules in the first place are an important part of the process of learning.
Meet Julie deBoer
My life is art. It’s about the creation of art, the support of artists, and impacting the world positively through art. I believe in and am building a non-competitive community where artists can grow their skills and pursue their passions together, because…
ART is powerful and purposeful. It is not about making pretty things to hang on the wall, to match the curtains. Art changes our perspective and opens us up to something much deeper, higher, and grander than ourselves.
Creating unique impressions of the world as I see and experience them, is life-giving to me, and it seems, to those who enjoy my work. I am a deep-welled person, sensitive in every way a person can be, which heightens my awareness and ability to connect with people through my art. Though it also makes life more painful, it also makes it more beautiful and I’m grateful for it.
My smooth, flowing, moving landscapes capture the interaction I experience with nature. God says “the sky speaks, the heavens proclaim, even the rocks cry out, the mountains and hills break into singing, the trees of the forest sing for joy!” This is what I see glimpses of and hear whispers of when I’m in nature.
THIS is my JOY and PURPOSE in creating art, to translate my experience into a visual, inspiring, joy-filled, and powerful visual display.
Meet Caprice Hogg
Caprice Hogg first picked up a paintbrush in 1994 and has been painting across Canada – indoors and outdoors – ever since. Her life and career has been utterly immersed in the world of art. From all of her travels, it is the landscape of the west that truly speaks to Caprice and is the subject matter that most often winds up on her canvases. After years of painting and exhibiting, Caprice first opened the doors of Caprice Fine Art & Co Studio Gallery in 2003, nestled amongst the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Kimberley, British Columbia. It is here, completely surrounded by nature, where Caprice lives, paints, sells and teaches art amongst the alpine air and this inspires her daily. Her original oil paintings are now in private and corporate collections across the world from Canada, the United States, Europe, and New Zealand. Her close relationship with those who have purchased her paintings is an honour and a cornerstone of her work.
After painting full time for many years, it was a natural progression to start teaching art. Caprice’s mentors taught her the rules of fine art using the same principles used by the Masters that inspire her, such as Michelangelo, the Group of Seven, and Emily Carr, to name a few. Her insatiable thirst for knowledge of art become an obsession as Caprice eagerly reads each and every art book she can get her hands on. She feels privileged to pass on their legacy to her students today. During her years as a teacher, Caprice has worked with elementary school children, disadvantaged youths, persons with disabilities, and retired people; in person and online from across Canada. During this process of community and creativity, magical things can happen. Caprice believes that art is the connecting link that goes far beyond oil paints, canvases and brushes. Her goal is to bring out those hidden gems in her students in the same gentle and profound way that her mentors did for her.
