Not concerning herself with details, but concentrating more on shape and colour, Paulette’s paintings evoke past travels, both locally and faraway places. Sometimes just a small portion of her panoramic view will be painted on her paper or canvas’ other times a much wider spectrum.

Paulette’s uncle, a self taught local artist and an aunt who was also a painter, encouraged her to draw when she was young. Then in high school and later at university she took art classes and continued locally with more classes and workshops throughout the years. In the summer of 2008 Paulette attended a one week workshop in Rockland, Maine with renowned artist, Donna Zagotta.

Paulette continues to explore watercolour and acrylics with the hopes of one day spending more time doing what she enjoys the most – that is showing part of her creativity through her art work.

Paulette exhibits in Bathurst at the Bay Breeze Art Gallery, in the Promenade Waterfront; the Auberge de la Vallee and also exhibited at the Smurfit Stone Library in 2008.

Rosita comes by her interest in art naturally.  Her father was a skilled landscape artist in Germany.  So she learned to appreciate art early in life.  She was particularly drawn to the impressionists and watercolor.  She never pursued art herself, instead she devoted her talents to the study of languages and to raising a family.  In 2010 Rosita took a beginners watercolor course offered by Adrienne Hazen and than realized a secret ambition to learn how to paint. Since than she has taken several courses with Adrienne and has also attended a plein-air watercolor workshop with the well known Nova Scotia artist Roger Savage at Port Mouton, NS in 2012.  

Rosita and her husband moved to Bathurst, NB in 1975 from Montreal.  She is originally from Germany and worked as an interpreter until her retirement.  She gets her inspirations from the beautiful land and seascapes in the Maritimes and from her travels.  She in an avid photographer and also keeps an artist journal on her travels.

Christopher Richard Hazen


My background is in digital media and video editing.  I attended the University of New Brunswick taking 2 years of psychology and 2 years of UNB’s Film Certificate Program (2009-2011), before starting to freelance as a videographer/video editor.  I worked on several projects during this period, including an ongoing filming of Occupy Calgary and music videos for Calgary’s Sudanese artists and film makers.

Most recently I went back to school to broaden my skill set, completing a certificate in Digital Media from the NBCCD (2013-2015).  This has given me the necessary skills and experience to move into the area of digital media which has now become my passion. 

I am currently residing in Toronto and working with a Multi Media company Nine Track.  I am gaining experience in the media area as well as in the marketing and hope to move into virtual reality soon. 

I continue to design and create my artistic portfolio using my photography and layering it with color and textures to create ground breaking effects. E-mail address is:
