A short biography ...
Connie is a visual artist and freelance graphic designer from Edmonton, Alberta.
Connie made a promise to herself a few years ago, that she would live creatively every day. Although she specializes in watercolour, and pastel paintings, like a lot of visual artists, she doesn't stop at paintings - she uses the many tools available to create digital art for marketing and advertising, stained glass, jewellery, garden decor and landscape design.
Unlike Leonardo da Vinci or Michael Angelo, she hasn't designed a flying machine, large churches or aquaducts, YET.
Connie draws inspiration from her faithful animal companions, her garden and from trips to other parts of the world.
Her paintings and drawings skillfully combine the colours and textures of nature. Her love of flowers and gardening is reflected in her watercolour paintings of gardens and garden structures.
As a graphic designer, Connie designs full branding packages for her clients, including logos, websites and marketing plans.
Connie has her Fine Arts Certificate (with distinction) from the University of Alberta and a Graphic Design Diploma (Honours).
She has attended many art workshops in Canada and during her travels.
