Deanna Fogstrom’s photographs, and paintings explore features and panoramas of Paris and Vancouver. Her interpretations of both cities show the complexity of places constantly animated by diversity and change. On a recent trip to Paris she became fascinated with haphazard collections of café chairs which marked the coming and going of patrons. Her Vancouver café series depicts the Yaletown neighbourhood of umbrellas and awnings connecting with the sky. Deanna’s work has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally. In 2014 she co-curated an exhibition of 18 female artists entitled, How Nice to Have a Hobby. Deanna graduated in 2007 from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (BFA). She studied Visual Arts and Applied Linguistics (MA) at Concordia University, in Montreal. Other credentials include, French (BA) and Education (Professional Teacher Certification) from Simon Fraser University. Deanna is proud to have taught in the public school system of British Columbia.
