Agape Designs

Agape Designs is owned and operated by artist/writer Karrie Emms in North Bay, Ontario. Ms. Emms specializes in many forms of art all created with love and prayer.

Recently Ms. Emms partnered with two Northern Ontario artists to create and run Gateway To the Arts Co-operative.  The co-op officially opened November 21, 2020 and hosts a gallery, workshop space, and 5 rental studios.  Opening in the midst of a global pandemic was risky but stepping out in faith the founders are making it work.  The co-op provides artists both experienced and emerging with a positive environment in which to learn and grow. 

Ms. Emms uses many different mediums including but not limited to pen and ink, pencil, acrylic and watercolor paint, chainmaille, crochet and more.  She offers workshops, art classes, special events, birthday parties and fundraisers made to order for any audience young or old.

No artistic experience is necessary because Ms. Emms believes everyone has artistic ability and the need for self expression!
