Zdena Price was born in communist Czechoslovakia in 1952, after escaping in her late teens she came to Canada to reunite with her parents and begin a new life in Flin Flon, Manitoba.

Three children later, it was time to finish grade 12 and look to her future. High school multimedia class was her first exposure to this creative outlet and she quickly founder hidden talent. Soon after graduation, she moved to Vancouver to study massage therapy, retiring in 2017. As retirement settled in, her passion for art has become her main focus. Lately, she can be found attending Mirja Vahala Art Studio in Robson.

“For me, painting is a silent language,” she says. “It is seeing with new eyes, going beyond habituation. The vitality, light, and sheer vibrancy of Nature draws me in. It is a heartfelt communion with beauty and mystery. I ask myself how I can convey the feeling and mood if my experience? As you focus on each painting, may it evoke in you and memory, feeling or experience that you treasure.”
