At Sisler High School Connie was lucky enough to have Taras (Ted) Korol as her art teacher, an amazing artist who was involved in costume and set designs for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Rainbow Stage, and other production associations.
Since that time--even while becoming a mother, travelling the world with her offshore oilfield-working husband, acquiring two degrees in History from the University of Winnipeg (BA 1987, MA 1989), and working towards a PhD at Dalhousie University—she has always been involved in one type of art or another.
It is only during the past ten years, however, that Connie has devoted more of her time and energy to her artistic pursuits, from fine needlework and clothing design, to silversmithing, ceramic art and painting with various media. Her work has appeared in a number of multi-artist shows, as well as two solo exhibits.
