Oxanna is involved in both community activism and painting. With a background in business administration, social and
environmental activism and painting, Oxanna appreciates the importance of balance in our lives. This sense of harmony is
reflected in her watercolour impressions of the Canadian landscape.

Oxanna also hopes that her paintings will trigger a greater sense of appreciation for our natural environment, so that what
was once taken for granted will be considered worth saving for all to enjoy.
 
Part of Oxanna's ongoing commitment to the environment includes donating a painting to be included in OPIRG's
Bonnie McAllum award, which is awarded annually to a Guelph resident for outstanding environment achievement.



“I have long considered the creative impulse to be a visit – a thing of grace,
not commanded or owned so much as awaited, prepared for”
Loreena McKennitt
