Shari-Anne has loved drawing and painting since she was small. Her grandmother, a painter, wood carver, knitter, and gardener, lived in a log cabin by the sea on Vancouver Island, and time with her there shaped Shari-Anne's creative imagination, and inspired her to go to art school in Toronto. Themes of language and liminality occupy her current work. She currently lives in a treehouse with her husband and three glorious sons. In real life, they live in a little red house in Yarrow, BC. They enjoy hiking, lake swimming, visiting the Okanagan, hot chocolate, and reading stories.
