Denise Tierney is a full-time artist with an active practice at Pentimenti Art Studio on Vancouver Island, BC.
Denise works across a wide range of media including paint, wax, wood, metal, clay and re-purposed objects to produce both two-dimensional and sculptural artwork. Her artistic practice is rooted in memory (personal and collective), history, ritual and tradition. She considers the transience of life and examines how experiences shape our identity.
Denise holds a BA in Visual Art and a Diploma in Visual Art (both with distinction) from Vancouver Island University, Nanaimo BC.
