(Mary) Leona Olausen - Professional Artist
(Mary) Leona Olausen is a Metis artist who was born in Flin Flon, Manitoba, as the third child in a family of twelve. She spent her childhood in Dunmore, Alberta. Her favourite childhood memory is lying in the prairie fields on a hot summer day, drawing images in the clouds as they moved across the sky. Leona moved to Edmonton in her teens, married and had children, and eventually made Edmonton her permanent home.
Leona graduated from the University of Alberta's Fine Arts Program in 2008. Edmonton. She is a member of Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC. As a practising mixed-media artist, I am on a journey of discovery of colour, shape, and line with the goal of eliciting a response from the viewer. Abstract Art Ventures Mix Media. Acrylic and water-based media are among the available options.
