Snowy Owl Card

Jacki Bastable

Locally made card by Jacki Bastable.

At the age of 50, Jacki was diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy which causes black holes in her vision. As a result, for a time she had lost confidence in her ability to paint realistic images.

Jacki was inspired by a close friend in Turner Valley to try her hand at folk art under the direction of Evelyn Richmond at the Sheep Creek Arts Council. This awoke her love of painting on canvas once again.
