Professional sculptor and multi-disciplined artist Paige Harris struggles with mental health issues, but instead of doubting herself, she decided to channel her energy towards creating art and pursuing online streaming.

For Calgarian Danielle Travers, dogs have always been a huge part of her life. But with three canine additions to her house and three litters of puppies, she became more than the average enthusiast.  

When Travers’ family first picked up a fluffy companion, a Keeshond, she quickly realized the breed would be a significant aspect of her life going forward.

Freddy Ansara is the chief design officer at FA Design, a growing outerwear company based in Calgary. He certainly means business, and a distinct air of intelligence shines through in his expressive and alert gaze. Though perhaps he has the look of the typical snowboarder, with curly hair and a relaxed energy, he is far from conventional.

Ansara, a former pro-rider, is gaining worldwide recognition for doing things a little differently and creating high-tech outerwear that he says will change the future of winter clothing.

Jack of all artistic trades, Bruce Horak, has made a career for himself in both the performing arts and music. His newest endeavor is painting, focusing on portraits and dabbling in landscapes.

He tours Canada and the United States for his art shows all while being one of Canada’s only legally blind visual artists.
