Artist Interview with Daylynn Drever

We are thrilled to be featuring the winner of the Best in Show award for our spring exhibition, Daylynn Drever! Daylynn is a Registered Nurse working and painting in Alberta, Canada. We could go on and on about her color and texture use, but let's have her tell you more about it herself.

For those in our audience who don't know you, could you introduce yourself?

Hi! My name is Daylynn Drever and I’m a mixed media artist that lives in Calgary, AB, Canada with my husband. I love exploring different parts of he city, spending time outdoors and traveling. I’m also a Registered Nurse which is why I started painting. I needed something to balance the stress of my work life. I paint with a ton of color and love being able to capture a feeling or place in my art! I’m not afraid to try new techniques and mediums in my work. You can always catch me wandering the aisles of the art supply stores looking for some shiny new thing.

How long have you considered yourself an artist?

I’ve been painting since the Fall of 2019 and if you define an artist as someone who makes art, that’s when it all began! Although, I would say that during the summer of 2020, I really started embracing being known as an artist and making art more regularly.
