Valerie McLenahan & Amanda Tanner

Valerie McLenahan has been passionate about art since she was a child though her development as an artist began years later. Now she continually strives to improve herself as an artist by gaining more understanding of all aspects of art. Learning from other artists, books and videos continues to ever expand her range of techniques and abilities. She shares her artistic skills by teaching and receives enjoyment from her students’ successes. Amanda Rose Tanner discovered her affinity to Fibre art processes during her studies at Alberta University of the Arts (ACAD) from where she graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She is a member of the Sheep Creek Weavers and Fibre Artists Guild, has taught felting classes in multiple communities around the Greater Foothills, and has shown and sold her fibre based artworks to private collectors, through local galleries, shops and artisan sales.
