Art Instructor Bio - Ashley Gaboury BFA

Even before graduating with a BFA in Studio Arts in 2003 at The University of Lethbridge, Ashley Gaboury worked as an instructor at The Prairie Art Gallery in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Over the past fifteen years she established herself as a 2-dimensional art instructor, while simultaneously developing as a professional artist. She exudes enthusiasm and passion about drawing, and is continually pushing boundaries within her artwork. She creates in a myriad of mediums including watercolour pencils, alcohol-based markers, and acrylics.

The bulk of her work has spiritual undertones, often playing with the dualism of light and dark, and the dichotomy of good and evil.

For the past few years her artwork has evolved to reflect the dramatic impact humans have had on our surroundings, specifically, the domestication of Canis Lupus (wolves) into Canis Lupus Familiars (dogs). In order to better understand the instinctive behaviour patterns of dogs and wolves, she began a comprehensive study and collaboration with The Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary in Cochrane, Alberta. She creates drawings using watercolour pencil on canvas, with the intention of capturing their instinctual nature, curiosity, and stoicism. She sells fine art prints to raise funds and awareness for the sanctuary.
