Born in Montréal, Québec, Sunny Savage took a job at a ski shop immediately after graduating from Westmount High School. On her first ski trip, she fell off the ski tow twice and was hit by a toboggan during a desperate attempt to snow plough down the bunny hill to relative safety. With her leg broken in three places and her family having just relocated to Edmonton, Alberta, Sunny literally tumbled into her new life on the Western prairies.
Trained in Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge and the University of Alberta, Ms. Savage has worked for numerous corporations, media sources, performing arts centers and community agencies. In 1985, she met a man from Trois Rivières, Québec and had her first solo exhibition, in Edmonton, Alberta. They returned to Québec, in 1989, and have raised two children as well as a severely disabled foster child.
Her paintings are primarily abstract, utilizing acrylics, gel mediums, dish soap and industrial road kill. They are displayed in many private collections and corporate buildings throughout Western and Eastern Canada.
