She has been a thriving self-taught artist for over 15 years specializing in oil on canvas. Tresa runs a successful fast-paced studio in Calgary and her art can be found in collections throughout the world. Her studio is always alive with paint flying, music playing and an abundance of laughter! Her art is an expression of her personal beliefs of optimism and spirituality; it illustrates the moments of enlightenment, emotion and positivity that we all seek.

This piece will be created live for Your Brain On Art. Inspiration is drawn from interactions with the audience as well as the event itself. Tresa was motivated to support Branch Out Neurological Foundation because of her personal experience with her son Fletcher who suffered from a sudden onset of seizures at a young age. She discovered the path to his healing by working with neurologists, a dietician and trusting her own instinct. Fletcher has made a full recovery and Tresa continues to champion the exploration and evolution of natural and alternative healing methods for all.
