My name is Dayna Bordage (née Stonehocker). I am an artist who grew up in small town Alberta and completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Alberta in 2003. Currently I live and work in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with my husband and child.

I paint in acrylic and watercolour, and I almost exclusively paint on site, working from life. There is something about the experience of painting what I’m seeing–something that I can’t capture in a photograph or in showing someone what I’m looking at. There is something about painting it. My paintings are captured moments, the passage of time, changes in moods, seasons and environment. A document of my time and place in the world.
