Kalina is an 18 year old artist from St. Albert, Alberta. She has been practicing art from a young age, and has dabbled in a variety of mediums from oil paint and sculpture to digital artwork. Recently, she has been busy creating a body of wildlife art pieces and pet portraits in chalk pastel. This fall, Kalina will be attending Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, for her first year of study toward her Honours Bachelor of Illustration. Kalina plans to sell both framed originals and prints of her artwork at the Whyte Ave Art Walk, and will be putting her earnings toward her upcoming tuition costs. This summer, she hopes to continue developing her pastel abilities through commissioned wildlife and pet portrait work. This is the first art event Kalina has participated in, and she is excited to become a part of Edmonton’s art community!
