Brina Schenk was born in Ontario where she grew up surrounded by music and makers but her love of visual arts didn’t surface until she was in college. Finishing up her graphic design course in Victoria, Brina had endless exposure to the many uses of digital arts, for both print and online, at a prestigious ad agency. Not long after moving to Vancouver, Brina co-owned a little stationery business for couples getting married around the world where she continued to grow as an illustrator. She also dabbled in book design and illustrating for periodicals. During this time, it was suggested to Brina to buy some paints and that’s when her love of painting began.
In 2008, Brina moved to Fernie and has grown as a painter, illustrator, pixel manipulator and mobile creator. Now a wife and a mom of 2, she continues to be inspired by the world around her, the people she meets and all the big and little moments of each day.
