Ava Roth is a Toronto-based artist with experience in a wide range of media, including painting, embroidery, wax-carved and cast jewelry and textiles. Roth also has extensive experience sculpting and painting unique hand-crafted cakes. For the past few years she had worked predominantly in encaustic (wax, oil and resin.)
All of Ava Roth’s art, regardless of the medium, is connected by a single endeavor: to use traditionally female, and often impermanent, materials in new and unconventional ways. Roth has been motivated by a connection to and conversation with other women across different times and cultures.
Ava Roth’s work has been featured in many on-line and print magazines, including Design Sponge, Wedding Bells and Cake Central. Her pieces have been acquired by numerous private collectors. Roth has shown in Toronto at the C1 Gallery, AWOL, and Loop Gallery, where she is currently a member.

Julia Drachman works in many media including graphite, charcoal, acrylic and oil paints, and digital art. She is particularly inspired by subject matter related to memory and the inherent filters through which we recall spaces, places, and people. Her most recent work explores portraiture in the age of constant self-representation and self-examination. She is interested in deciphering the friction between how we view ourselves and how others view us.
Julia grew up in Seattle, Washington until she moved to Connecticut to attend Wesleyan University. There she studied Architecture through the Studio Art and Art History programs. She now lives and works on Bainbridge Island, WA where she works for McLennan Design, an architecture and consulting firm that does deep green sustainable work through a regenerative, ecologically sensitive design practice.
