(Mary) Leona Olausen is Canadian Metis, working as a mixed media acrylic artist, in Edmonton, Alberta. Leona holds a Fine Arts Certificate from the University of Alberta. She is a devout advocate volunteering for various venues in Edmonton. Her dedication to the arts earned her a job sharing position as assistant director of Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC in 2013-15. She is a member of Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC, and a juried member of The Alberta Society of Artists, VASA Visual Arts Studio Association of St Albert, and Gallery@501 Strathcona County.
As a practicing fine artist, Leona focuses on texture, movement and color in nature, with the intention of invoking a response from the viewer. Ventures in the Art Process include photography (Digital Manipulation); mixed media, the photographic image dictate the direction of each piece.
