Lancette Burton- Visual Artist and Photographer
Thank you for stopping by!
I am a born and raised Calgarian who found a passion for art and photography in high school. That enthusiasm began in Grade 10 art class, while experimenting with pencil crayons and pastels. I competed my first acrylic painting, two years later in grade 12.
Art has been a large influence in my life. It has gotten me through the good and hard times of my life and fill my heart with joy. I am inspired by my own prairie backyard and I love painting big skies, interesting mountains, colourful sunsets and animal characters. I love using my own references captured from my adventures, then turn them into a art piece.
My photography journey began after the birth of my son, in 2013. I was motivated to learn how to capture as many special moments, from his childhood, as possible. I enrolled in courses and photography workshops and began experimenting with those special moments, not only with my own family, but for many others as well. I soon discovered that I truly enjoyed working with families; capturing authentic moments and the details that make those families unique. There is something very special about documenting your family, and your growth, through photographs. I enjoy creating memories though creative portraits which you will treasure for years to come.
