Carrie Shibinsky started Artbomb, December, 2011 with Jim Shedden and Andrea Carson Barker. After working for 20 years at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Carrie wanted to stay connected to the art world and believed that artists lacked vehicles to help them promote and profile their work. Carrie created Artbomb to give artists a fresh new marketing strategy for more exposure. Artbomb has created a new way for busy professionals to connect with original, unique works of art daily.

Marie Manon is a contemporary abstract painter. She was born in Montreal Quebec, moved to Calgary, Alberta, in 2010. She studied at the Calgary School of Art and is an active Board member at Calgary’s Motion Gallery. She has participated in numerous art shows and her work can be found in public and private collections. Her work consists of blending shapes and colours in layers. Each canvas is charged with emotions, which is demonstrated through the movement of the brushwork and the layering of rich colours. What emerges on is a visual display that is highly emotional and personal. Marie Manon’s ultimate desire is that all who intersect with her art be overcome with the feelings which were present during the creation process: joy, freedom and peacefulness.
