Jacquie is an Alberta born Metis Folk Artist in Nova Scotia. With 2 boys who have special needs she realized the great therapeutic value art can have on individuals. Art gives everyone a voice, a way to express themselves and release anxieties so she hopes to bring the joy of art to other families. She has an undergrad degree from NSCAD University as well as a degree in Psychology. She worked several years in mental health research with several scholarly articles published in mental health literacy including research on First Nations Youth. She is currently working towards her masters in Child and Youth Studies specializing in Art therapy as a tool for intervention. As an established artist her work tells stories through the use of fun vibrant colours and has started a fun new landscape series using actual Nova Scotia red mud from the Bay of Fundy

Grace has been involved in art as a therapeutic tool in her own life for the past 8 years. She has dedicated herself to learning and utilizing paints as a way to connect with the natural environment, emotion, and community. Grace has been instructing in a variety of different forms from lifesaving to outdoor education over the course of her career and continues to enjoy teaching art with Creative Crew Art Parties. She will be returning to school this fall to Dalhousie to finish her degree in Sociology and Sustainability. In her free time, Grace spends time with her two year old son, hiking, playing ukelele and writing poetry.

Jill has enjoyed art for as long as she can remember and tries to include it as often as possible into her daily activities. She especially loves taking something that has no value or meaning and transforming into a special, personalized piece full of life, colour and if appropriate, glitter. By profession, Jill is a school teacher, but also maintains various part-time jobs using her artistic skills, such as face painting, mural making, creating personalized gifts and most recently, joining the team with Creative Crew. In the past she was also hired by HRM to design and paint a traffic box to reflect the community she grew up in. In her free time, aside from painting, Jill enjoys the outdoors, seeing new places and spending time with her husband and two little girls.
