Tricia Sellmer is a multi-layered, multi-medium Canadian artist working primarily within the parameters of painting and drawing. For more than fifteen years, she has concentrated on making the invisible visible. Her interests are three pronged. The first probes the personal and veiled subtleties of the garden and the shifting patterns of the landscape. The second finds the extraordinary in the ordinary and focuses largely on the domestic lives of women and in particular those lives that have often been forgotten within the dialogue of history or silenced through circumstances beyond their control. The third connects the dots and blurs the boundaries between genres, often in collaboration with other artists who work in a different medium.
She holds degrees from the University of British Columbia, Thompson Rivers University (University College of the Cariboo) and the Transart Institute in association with the University of the Danube.Her work hangs in public and private collections throughout North America and Europe.
