A peek inside Shane's studio in Ingersoll, Ontario. In the last few years, Shane's branched out into stunning original painted artwork as well.
Love the highly textured, barnacle-like growths on this series of petite ceramic vessels... So pretty!
A fascinating form - they remind me of curiously stemmed acorns - and a metallic finish elevate these sculptures to "statement piece" status.
Another artist on my "most-coveted" list - and also a participant of the Oxford Studio Tour - is acclaimed painter Sue Goossens. Sue's watercolours are positively dreamy representations of southwestern Ontario landscapes, with the occasional well-loved landmark in the mix, and they never fail to instantly transport me back home.

(And yes, Sue's portfolio consists of much more than winter landscapes - I'm just a sucker for the blue-greys in this particular series.)And of course, there's the natural beauty of the area that's sure to inspire. I took these snaps last weekend on the farm - the abundant forsythia is absolutely luminous! Follow Style Sleuth on Twitter! Subscribe to Style Sleuth!
