We believe that there is joy in each and every step of the journey, and that everyone has a special and unique story.
Cedar Lake and the Fixx websites share stories of art and artisans, and collect some of the finest crafted, most compelling and sometimes whimsical works to make them available to you.
Who we are:
Wendy Campbell: I am a Canadian artist and entrepreneur with a background in web design, marketing and communications and not-for-profit fund raising. I was born and raised in Toronto and have lived in the Cayman Islands, Calgary, Vancouver, Oberhausen, Germany, and Tokyo, Japan. I have two lovely cats – Neko, and Spelunk who have traveled the world with me for the past 13 years. I also like to write – poetry, lyrics and music… but that’s another story. I am Co-Chair of the Cambridge Arts Festival – an annual celebration of music, performance, visual arts, and community in the City of Cambridge.
Susan Benton: I am a Canadian entrepreneur with a background of marketing, sales, communication, training and retail directorships at major Canadian theatres and art galleries. I was born in Toronto and have lived in Oakville, Stratford, London, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls, Waterdown and Cambridge and have travelled to England, Ireland, Scotland, and across Canada and the US. I have two awesome sons who each make the world a better place, and my faith is at the centre of my life. I also play the piano (badly), cycle and run, and spend as much time at the cottage as I can.
What we are doing:
Our paths converged at a major art gallery in Toronto and our goal was to work together to create opportunities for artists and artisans, and those who want to choose to have more beauty, joy and fun in their lives. We both have a passionate interest in human beings and what it is that makes them tick, and we remember on a daily basis that we have so much to be grateful for.
Where we have come:
Our first website Daily Art Fixx began in April 2009 as a way to share art – for education and inspiration. Since then DAF has grown beyond expectations to include artist profiles (both historical and current), most visual art genres, and themes such as Women in the Arts, Art-e-Facts, E-Learning, videos, and more.
Fact Fixx came next, a site that we hope amazes you and incites laughter, and for us is so much fun to work on.
