Local Artists

Here at Elpida Cafe we want to support our local artists, and provide wall space for them to showcase and sell their artwork. Each month we feature a different talented artist, so stop by often to see the constantly changing decor. 

* We are currently booked for the 2019 year, but we have openings for 2020! If you are an artist in the Georgina area who would be interested, feel free to contact us! 

About the Artist

Shirley Deakin


Growing up in the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia. Shirley found herself inspired by nature and photography at an early age. In 2012, Shirley relocated to Keswick. She was immediately drawn to Lake Simcoe and was motivated to capture the elusive yet magnificent sunset.

                   Her landscape photography captures the natural beauty of her surroundings and her community. The “Lake House Collection “ is a collection of photographs captured in 2017 of Lake Simcoe. These beautiful photographs are printed on canvas, signed and sequenced by Shirley. In 2018, Shirley donated a 20x40 canvas photograph known as “Hot Tamale” to the Georgina Cares Fund. An annual charity that helps families in Georgina. Shirley believes that through nature and photography she can give back to her community.
