Deltra Powney is an artist living and working in Alberta, Canada
Originally from Saskatchewan Deltra moved to Alberta to attend Medicine Hat College, receiving a Visual Communications Diploma in 1993, eventually working in advertising in Edmonton. From 1999 to 2001 she mentored High School students at the Jasper Place Artist Residency, and started exhibiting her work. In 2017 she graduated from the University of Alberta, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction focused in painting, and printmaking. Her work has been retained by corporate, and private collectors, and the University of Alberta. Deltra divides her time between painting at her home studio in Stony Plain, printmaking at the Society of Northern Alberta Printmakers in Edmonton, and teaching adult painting classes at Edmonton City Arts Centre. This summer Deltra will be traveling to the Yukon Territory to attend the Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency where she will be canoeing the Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City. She will be preparing work based on her experiences in the Yukon for the 2019 exhibition season.
