Art teacher Ivanna Crosina is among about 20 members of the Cariboo Art Society whose work is being shown for the next two weeks at the Signal Point Gaming Centre’s events room.
Originally from Hong Kong, and now married and living in Williams Lake Crosina came to Canada when she was three years old.
She was raised in Toronto and studied fine art at Queen’s University, and earned her Bachelor of Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
She specializes in drawing, painting, and printmaking, and loves to experiment with recycled materials and mixed media.
Her favourite medium is oil painting. Her piece in the Cariboo Art Society show is an abstract painting in reds and golds which she says reminds her of happy times and sunshine.
She has been teaching art and working with adults and children for more than 10 years in many different facets of the art field.
She has taught for School District 27 and for the Maranatha Christian School.
She also teaches art classes for children at the Station House Gallery.
