UppstArt Artist Stories

Featured Artists

“My greatest inspiration is colour; I am fascinated by how certain colours and combinations of colours can evoke all sorts of emotions within people.”

Carolyn Jerrard

UppstArt Artist

“I am particularly interested in my work being metaphoric of the mind. The essence of something, or subject, can manifest in different ways.  Its’ life perhaps an emergent quality, which is not quite the sum or the parts.  The “crowd” series in particular, is a celebration of the community of self, and the spirit of interconnection. “

John F. Gerrard

UppstArt Artist

“I strongly believe that allowing my intuitive inner knowledge to be a dominant factor while working is what keeps my artwork fresh and real.  While subject matter varies, this outlook defines each piece as mine.”

Janice Mather

UppstArt Artist

“The creative spirit comes from within”

What Our Customers Are Saying

I am thrilled with my new painting “Grandma’s Window” by Marie Manon that I ordered on  the Uppstart website.  The ordering and payment were very easy and delivery prompt.  The piece was professionally wrapped, properly protected and in perfect condition .

Upon unveiling the painting from the wrapping, I was awestruck by the vibrancy in colour and texture. It was much more vivid than shown on the website and for one who loves colour, this made me very happy. It was a “WOW”.

The beautiful aqua and deep blue blends in contrast with the muted colours of  the flowers in the painting  are an eye catching complement to my massage treatment room. The painting is soothing and speaks to me of “healing”.

I could not wait to hang it and notice how each client commented on the addition of the beautiful new art piece. It is hard to miss.

Thank you UppstArt for being a trusted website and for doing what you promised to do.  I am a very satisfied customer and look forward to purchasing more original art on UppstArt.

The Buzz On UppstArt

Friends, Partners & Acknowledgements

As a Calgary-based venture, our team wishes to respectfully acknowledge and say that we are honoured to work and live on Treaty 7 Territory.

Accordingly, I would like to acknowledge the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations).  The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.  Additionally, the lands on which we live and work are situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Moh’kins’tsis”, which we now call the City of Calgary.
