Hello, my name is Dominique and I am the new artist designing the Untamed Ego back panels.
Born and raised in Calgary, I did not discover painting until 2014, at which point I fell obsessively in love with the acrylic medium. I found my style through hours of YouTube and at workshops with some amazing teachers, including renowned Canadian artists David Langevin and Heather Pant.
I enjoy painting mountains, rocks, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, and other places unmarked by people, using colours to enhance the wonder of the natural landscapes. I work very hard to consider my environmental impact as an artist,
from the ways I’ve managed to keep my waste paint out of the water supply, down to repurposing used materials when packaging paintings to be shipped.
I have a business degree from the University of Calgary and before taking this creative turn I was an aviation insurance specialist for a decade or so. I’m proud to hold a CIP designation from the Insurance Institute of Canada.
In my deep past, I got my glider license and an ultralight permit from Transport Canada and even took up hang gliding for a while. I’m a mother to 2 beautiful girls and a lucky wife to the best man in the world.
With every sale, I pinch myself that others enjoy my work too.
My paintings can now be found on display in various businesses in Calgary and Edmonton, and many homes throughout Canada and the United States.
I like to give back where I can and contribute a portion of my sales to not for profit organizations, which have included the Canadian Red Cross, Black Lives Matter, Bridges to Community Canada, Transform Salone, the Calgary Humane Society, the Cerebral Palsy Association, and micro-lending through Kiva.org.
You can also get a piece of my art on the back of your next Ego Collection.
