I chatted with Ukrainian-born, Edmonton-based artist Oksana Zhelisko recently.

Oksana moved to Canada from Ukraine when she was 21 and has been here since. Her art is full of emotion and I encourage you check out her recent series on her social channels. She’s incredibly talented.

It took us a couple of tries to be able to connect for this chat. And, to do so, she joined me from her parked car, which I’m super grateful for because I learned so much from her. I hope you do too.
