Craig Guthrie was born and raised in Guelph, Ontario. Early on Craig felt connected to nature, spending countless summers of his childhood fishing with his father around Georgian Bay and the Kawartha lakes.
Following four years of study in the the University of Windsor’s Fine Arts Acting program, Craig stepped behind the scenes and into the world of set design and scenic art. This path lead Craig to many scene shops throughout Ontario, including those in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Hamilton, Grand Bend, Stratford, and Toronto.
The last decade has been spent in the Forest City of London, Ontario which Craig, his husband Richard, and their cats Tina and Doug all call home.

Anne Hamilton is a London-born and raised artist who recently completed 3 years of the BealArt program. Anne has detailed memories going back to an early age, many of which involve food – due to her being a high-functioning autistic. It is these happy memories which inspires Anne’s art. She specifically focuses her art on memories of junk food such as candy, pop, and chocolate bars due to the bright colours and happy memories. Anne is also fascinated by translucency which has led her to creating resin sculptures of Life Savers and pop bottles.
Anne was welcomed to TAP in April 2018 through our Emerging Artists Studio Program -a fully-funded residency initiative supported by RBC Foundation and private donors.

The earliest visual influences on the artist’s work were l’Art Brut, l’Art Informel and Matter paintings – Antoni Tapies for example, as well as certain aspects of North American Abstract Expressionism – most particularly as reflected in Cy Twombly’s works.
Peter’s “Open Works” constitute an exploration of the symbolic and communicative power that we distill from texture and colour alone. His mixed media paintings typically incorporate some combination of sand, ashes, dust, chalk, marble dust, modelling paste, paper, cardboard and varnishes - coloured with raw pigments, acrylic paints, pencil, pencil crayon and watercolours.
Resident Artist, Studio 3B
Davita Guslits wants to be painting while she’s at band practice, and while painting she wishes she was drumming. While drumming she wishes she was playing guitar. When in the middle of writing a riff with the lead singer of Never Betters, she wonders why she hasn’t filmed a weird video in a while. She rarely stays in one place for very long.
Resident Artist, Studio 3C
