Connie Geerts is the youngest of a large family and grew up on a farm in Southwestern Ontario. Her creative journey started early drawing at the kitchen table with her siblings. Connie reflects her farm upbringing with a down-to-earth attitude that shows up in all that she does. She has her fingers in a lot of different pies. Connie’s an established painter, innovative sculptor and supportive teacher who you’ll find regularly doing painting demos with a number of art groups and galleries in the Calgary area. She’s been represented in professional galleries consistently since 1995 and at the moment shows her work in venues from BC to Ontario. Beyond art, Connie worked at CTV for over a decade as a news editor and spent a few years working in set dec in film and theatre. She says she has a low threshold for boredom and so she is constantly innovating in her work, trying new combinations of materials while remaining true to her Oeuvre. Lately, Connie is combining her original paintings digitally to create unique NFTs. Connie works out of her studios at her home in Southwest Calgary.
