What is HeART Fit?

  • a practice for those seeking a creative lifestyle and improved health through creative relaxation.
  • a 3-hour session of Spontaneous Process Painting.
  • a time to create ‘a resting heart’ by embarking on a journey of creative exploration, inviting creative spirit to lead you within, and awaken you to your authentic ‘self’
  • open to all ages (children accompanied by adults) and levels of experience – from those who have never picked up a paint brush to those who are experienced painters
  • supported and operated by participants in the group
  • a group experience whose focus is to learn from and encourage others as we evolve creative values.

Alex Fong Galleria Exhibition

Lake Country artist Angela Hansen completed her BDes at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and her BEd from the University of Victoria. Angela creates with encaustics and acrylics and her work is recognized for its organic-inspired imagery, sculptural qualities and use of texture. She is very interested in the human psyche and that which cannot be seen; that which exists through experience, time and change.

“Tree of Wisdom” is part of a series in which the tree acts as a visual metaphor for relationships, family, and protector of the human condition.

Angela’s art has been exhibited in the Okanagan, Kootenays and US. In 2017 her work was juried into “In Flawed Abundance”, an exhibition hosted by the International Encaustic Artists association in Massachusetts, US, and has been published in the UK magazine, House & Garden’s, Art Edit spreads. See to view more of her work.
