Meet Our Artists
Working in the Calgary area and the Foothills community for the past 20 years Iwalani (Eva-lani) has established herself as a set design artist, creating murals, building sets for local schools and theatres, marketing large scale projects and even painting the Value Tree in the common area of our very own Heritage Heights School! Having run her own art school for children, her art and storytelling experiences have led her to create beautiful children’s stories which she is in the process of publishing. She has taught many art classes and ran the Value Goals program at Heritage Heights School.
Her background in watercolour courses, drafting and fashion design from the Sunshine Coast, the Art Mecca of the Lower Mainland with its extensive galleries and native artesian‘s have influenced her art as well as her own Polynesian background. Also to her credit are marketing and promotion. She owns a small business with one of her daughters.
Her philosophy… “Expose students to the highest most complex art and they will discover that not only can they master those refinements and build confidence, that exposure, can become a part of them. Wether improving existing skills or creating new ones a confident person becomes a successful person. Successful people create stability and influence change for the better. My purpose in the field of art is to encourage if not inspire growing artist to become more confident and willing to share where ever their development leads them. Thats the best success story! “
