Miss Day graduated from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at the Alberta College of Art & Design in 2012. After taking her experience abroad for a year she returns to her frosty northern home to take the artistic community by storm. Her passion drives her to continue developing her practise while pursuing a career as an artist and will eventually travel again for a Master’s degree, opening doors to teaching and continuing her practise on a global scale.
