AUDREY BAKEWELL was born in Edmonton and has lived in South Surrey since 2001.
Her focus has not always been art, she is well known in the hockey industry as an innovative pioneer of power skating. However in 2001 her life took a turn with a serious car accident. To help in her recovery she took up painting. This has proved to be a blessing in disguise as it has led to development of her inner dream of being an artist. She now balances her life between a busy art career and producing future NHLers. She finds parallels between hockey and painting in terms of technique, flow, rhythm and movement. Now an AFCA member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the mediums which she prefers to work in are watercolor and acrylic.
My art is my effort to mix the unexpected with my love of bold colour.
