Born in Provost, AB, Hollee McKerchar has a lifetime of artistic expression. Throughout her childhood she studied dance, art, and music with a love for drawing and calligraphy. After recently recovering from a decade of chronic migraines, she is currently completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at MacEwan University, Edmonton AB. She gathers her artistic inspiration from her depths of personal experiences, encounters, personal observations, and her vast curiosity. She blends color, words, and imagination to convey, express and spark conversations regarding social-cultural topics into an artistic art expression. Interestingly her first oil painting was spring 2013.
