I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to create the cover image for the arts + culture issue of AirdrieLIFE magazine. Not only is this a fabulous local magazine but every issue features local arts. I feel very fortunate.
Airdrie artist Veronica Funk has been a featured artist and regular collaborator with airdrielife both on and off the page for 15 years. Giving her the arts issue cover was the natural choice. "My work over the past several years has been inspired by a combination of street art and traditional imagery. I love working intuitively, layering vibrant colour and pattern by utilizing stencils and other mark-making tools such as my hands. The imagery I selected for this particular piece was meant to evoke an almost dream-like sense of movement and passion that is prevalent in the arts."
