Karina Mak


     Drawing has always been my hobby. As a child, I would draw family members and use photos as reference.Karina Mak

     In 2007, I joined the Lethbridge Artists Club and expanded my repertoire. The following year I began to participate in the Figure Drawing sessions at the Bowman Arts Centre. My preferred subjects are animals, Chinese brush painting, flowers, landscapes, portraits and still life using acrylic, charcoal pencils, Chinese ink, pastel, pen and ink, oil and water color as medium.

     My juried paintings have been exhibited at the Bowman Arts Centre, the Yates Theatre Gallery and the CASA in Lethbridge; the Medicine Hat Cultural Centre; the Lebel Mansion Gallery in Pincher Creek; the Municipal Building in Calgary and Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery and the U of A Extensions Gallery.

     My award winning piece “ My Loving Daughter “ was exhibited at both Red Deer and Edmonton Art Gallery in 2010.

     My artwork has been featured in Quirk , a Southern Alberta Magazine in January 2012 and an interview with Elisha Rasmussen with Lethbridge Global Television News Hour was broadcasted in June 2012.
