Veneranda Kreipans-Wilson

2nd VP

I never joined anything till my prof told me in 2014 to join an art group; so I could put it on my CV. Once joining WASM I fell in love!

Elaine joined the WASM in 2015. As VP, she hopes to contribute to WASM’s success. Elaine is also a member of the Montreal Camera Club.

Art Exhibit

Born in Waterloo,Ontario. Worked at Toronto Western Hospital R.N. post grad operating room and Culinary School of Ontario.

My creativity is satisfied by cooking!

I feel my work has an edge; something in it that needs a moment, a second look to comprehend. What you pull from my work depends on your own experiences.

Deanne enjoys teaching art to retirees at E.N.C.O.R.E. Her preferred media are pen & ink, oil, fabric collage. She is an avid urban sketcher.
