Roby King

Roby King

Indefinite Arts Artist

“I created a lot of stories, about the Man from Snowy River, about Walt Disney in 1988. That is the year I was born in Alberta. We did “The Alamo”, we did “Texas Map”, all by myself. I think I have a whole bunch of art here.”

Roby is an internationally acclaimed disabled artist, who doesn’t let anything slow him down. His passion and talent for drawing and painting continues to grow year after year. Acrylic paints, watercolour, and drawing are his preferred mediums. Interpretive pieces with Walt Disney characters, trains, and movie scenes are some of his favourite things to draw and paint.

“Houses, trees, flowers, tea parties, people I imagine, stores to shop in. I like using colour. It is happy.” – Elaine Deborah O’Gorman

Elaine Deborah O’Gorman lives in Calgary with her mother. She enjoys going for coffee and on walks, she often walks in malls in the wintertime. These settings provide some inspiration for the colourful worlds she creates in her artwork. Elaine’s artworks are places for her to show off her love of design, and she enjoys decorating these worlds in exactly her own style.

Geoffrey Art Bates

Geoffrey Art Bates

Indefinite Arts Artist

“I find myself drawn to the style of older buildings, especially because my father loved to watch Calgary grow.”– Geoffrey Art Bates

Geoffrey has been a long time participant of Indefinite Arts Centre. He is an engaged member of his community, and participates in many programs. His love of creating art is paralleled by the love he has in sharing his art with others. While he most often derives the subject matter for his paintings from urban landscapes, including places he visits or encounters in his daily life, Geoffrey is also a fan of motor vehicles. While making his art he often talks about all the places he has gone, the places he wants to see, and the vehicles he would drive to see them.
