Marielle Rosky hails from Los Angeles, California and has lived in British Columbia since 2013 after completing a Bachelor’s degree from Quest University studying Arts for Social Change. Marielle is a cozy homebody and loves to care for plants, tend a beautiful vegetable garden, paint on rainy days while listening to jazz, and cook fancy fun meals and treats (including pastel coloured french macarons!). Marielle loves to create stories through images, using clay, painting, sketching, animation, collage, or any other medium! Marielle believes storytelling is healing work and wants to share that with the world!
“Talented Teresa” is a truly talented artist and painting instructor here at 4Cats Kitsilano! Teresa completed her Fine Arts degree at Emily Carr University of Art + Design with a focus in painting. She was born in Ecuador and developed a deep love for art and film at a very young age. Teresa also enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion with the children here at 4Cats. Her kind, warm and playful nature brings joy to everyone she meets!
Please Note: We aim to fire clay in order of date but sometimes this is not possible due to space in the kiln or thickness of the art pieces. Clay pieces may need up to 3 weeks to dry.
