A Rimbey area young artist who likes to create pieces that bring happiness will be showcased at Lacombe’s Gallery on Main.

Leanne Karlstrom will be featured at a free reception on Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. at the gallery located at Suite 2-4910 50th Ave.

Karlstrom uses pen and ink with a straight or curved line and going where her imagination leads her. She was recently asked to submit one of her pieces for display at Times Square in New York City.

Over the past 10 years, she has earned numerous diplomas and certificates, including a yellow belt in kickboxing and a diploma in interior design.

Karlstrom found over the years that she was drawing and painting less.

Then several years ago, she learned about alternative health and many of its beliefs associated with it. Karlstrom began to change the way she thought and lived, based on what she learned on that health journey.

“I have learned to seek my bliss, to do what truly makes me happy and that has brought me back to art,” said Karlstrom.

“Whether I’m drawing or painting, the message in my work is always the same: Love and light. To create something that brings happiness into others’ lives is my truest goal.”

The Gallery on Main is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, go online at www.thegalleryonmain.com.
