Artist, Dancer, Healer
The Arty Award!
Congratulations to Gwen Spinks, this years Arty Award Winner.
The community member that nominated her had this to say and we couldn’t agree more…
“Gwen is tirelessly contributing by helping other artists and serving the community by making artwork accessible to everyone. She is innovative, sensitive, caring and always does things with a smile on her face and with the kindest of intentions.
Gwen supports artists by helping them evolve ideas and projects. She helps them on a personal level and she also hosts an annual art show and sale which is providing exposure for emerging and establishes artists and is also exposing young artists to the experience of creating and selling art. She has been doing this for 6 years now.
Gwen lives a life of intention and leads by example. She’s encouraging, inspiring and a loving and lovely person and artist.”

Gwen Spinks | Dancer
It all started in grade 10 dance class…
I’ve been dancing as often as I can since then. From competing to teaching and travelling, dance has always been my first love.
