  Chris MacClure
Artist - IAD Founder & Creative Director

Chris, a Canadian Romantic Realist Artist in White Rock, BC, is always looking for that authentic gesture or moment in everything. His paintings are an expression of his "Romantic Realist" view of life, not crafty nor painterly.

Chris started I.A.D. to have a special day, held every Oct 25th, for the world to recognize and celebrate all the contributions artists have given to society.

Artist - IAD Writer

Not only is Marilyn an accomplished painter, she is a brilliant writer, and brings an interesting perspective to International Artist Day.

Like her paintings Marilyn's writing is a menage of life, experience and creative energy. Whether paint or prose, her landscapes and expressionist abstracts all reflect the vibrant colors of her life as a contemplative artist.
