Dr. Given has always had an interest in art, but found the time to take some painting lessons when she graduated from Dental school in 2002. She loved it so much, she rented a studio space for several years at the Purple Door Art Studio in Calgary, which allowed her to collaborate with other artists and learn from her favorite artist and mentor Anna Ostberg.
Now that she has children, she loves to paint with them, as well as other children and friends at her cabin in Windermere, B.C. She loves having her own little art studio where people can come and enjoy being creative with her. That brings her great joy! She has sold numerous paintings but mostly just paints for the fun of it!
