Arlene fell in love with arts and crafts at a very young age and it fast became a life long love affair. She has always painted but only began pursuing it professionally in the early 2000’s.
She has yet to meet an art medium she doesn’t enjoy working with, and has developed significant bodies of art works in oil, acrylic and water colour in many different styles and techniques. She’s taken many classes over the years, through the WAG , SAC, continuing education, and from other artists she’s admired. In 2018 she had the good fortune to be offered a pop up Art gallery in Portland Oregon. The Arlene Enns Gallery was a 6 month realized dream that will never be forgotten—Arlene continues to sell her work locally and on line and has collectors across Canada the US and even a few in Europe.
Recently she launched a clothing line featuring wearable art partnering with the Le Galeriste company out of Montreal. This line is featured on her on line storefront through her “Art with Arlene “ Facebook page as well as locally at the variety of artisan shows she participates in annually. Arlene encourages you to follow your dreams and to live life on purpose.
