Featured Artists of Vine Styles

Eleanor Brich 

"I was brought up in a lovely, little countryside village outside of Cambridge, England in the United Kingdom.

During my schooling I always loved everything and anything artistic and was lucky to be able to acquire some great education in these fields. As a child I always loved getting creative from drawing animals, to taking artistic courses with my mother and creating cartoons of my family members I began by taking art in the younger years at school which helped me explore and experiment and then continue on this path through the years.

After moving to Canada I came across the Milan art institute and decided to push my art to the next level and begin a career in the art industry.

I see the beauty in the simple things in life and bring this to the canvas. My work shows the power of positivity and hope breaking through the negative parts of life. I show optimism by painting nature which emulates growth and pure beauty.

My process brings together a mixture of inks, pens, acrylics and oils providing depth. Each step brings me such joy, from the fluidity of the inks, the structure of the pen, the transformation from the acrylics and the depth and colour the oils bring.

I have a huge passion for travel and have been lucky enough to travel the world with my husband where I collected inspiration and continue to do so.

Not only do I continue to travel for inspiration but I plan to continue to create pure, authentic art to bring you joy and happiness." - Eleanor Birch

Kirsten Bollen

Calgary based artist and designer, Kirsten Bollen, is known for her colourful and minimalist representations of nature in a signature circle. Exploring the great outdoors inspires much of her work, as she creates paintings that echo the colours and shapes found in nature to evoke an emotional response from others as they apply their own connection to the work. 

"Albertan through and through, Kirsten has lived in this province all her life. She was born and raised in small town, northern Alberta and moved to Edmonton to receive a Bachelor of Visual Communication Design at the University of Alberta, where she honed her skills in graphic design, painting, and drawing. After taking a break from art to follow a career in the public service in Calgary, the pandemic provided a gift of time, where she expressed her love for the rocky mountains through paint and developed a distinctly unique style."
