Calista Cooper | Saskatoon, SK
I am an artist and an art educator. I started painting around 3 years ago, but I have been drawing for many years. I work in acrylic, watercolour, ink, pencil, ceramics, and mixed media – but the material I find has the most magic for me is watercolour. The artistic process allows me to work on my holistic self. Mentally and emotionally I use the creative process as a way to calm my nerves and release anxiety. Spiritually, I create art to build a relationship between myself and something (anything) outside of myself. This is where my connection to Saskatchewan wildlife comes from. I want my work to have the incredible energy the animals of our province and country hold.
