Holly Hildebrand g.hildy@sasktel.net

I am a professional artist who works primarily in mixed media, fabric, print, paint and drawing; often exploring concepts related to the earth, identity, history and spirit. Always learning and trying new methodology, I adapt and change as ideas and materials are explored. I am a champion of the creative spirit and believe it integral to a healthy and holistic life and encourage others to join me in play. Whether organizing gatherings and workshops, exhibiting my work in public spaces, collaborating with other artists or working in schools, I share my love of creative play with everyone and embrace intentional creativity.
