Sarkis is a local artist who grew up in Ottawa, Canada, where she earned her degree in Visual Arts from Algonquin College. Her oil paintings are inspired by organic forms found in nature such as flowers, fruit, landscapes, and on occasion she will experiment with abstracts. Uses of vibrant color reflect the simple beauty in ordinary things which speak soulfully and joyfully through her work. Her photography exhibit focuses on capturing images of cairns (heaps of stones) created from local concretions balanced on each other. Stone staking is a collaborative family pastime.

The artist’s work is¬†featured in the Ewing Family Community Room gallery on the third floor, as well as the main lobby of the library. The gallery is open free of charge to visitors of the library during regular business hours.
