Dayna Bordage grew up in Beaverlodge, Alberta and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Alberta in 2003. She works in acrylic and watercolour and works on-site, painting from life. Dayna is inspired by the changing light and seasons as she paints scenes of suburban and rural Alberta, endeavoring to capture the feeling of everyday moments, the passage of time, changes in moods, and environments, and our emotional connection to the time and place in which we live.

Currently Dayna lives and works in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with her husband and child.
