Candace Makowichuk, professional visual artist, arts educator and arts manager, specializes in historical photographic processes and techniques for her artwork. Committed to the unique and multi faceted aspects of photography, Makowichuk specializes in the following historical photographic processes: Cyanotype, Gum Bichromate, Silver Gelatin, Bromoil and hand tinting.

Candace has extensive experience in educating the public on the importance and impact the visual arts have on our community and lives. Through workshops, residencies and exhibiting her artwork in historical photographic processes, she has instilled a renewed interest in analogue photography – film and other non-digital processes. Her work is represented in public collections within Alberta, private collections within Canada and exhibitions throughout the province.

“For me it is how I become a part of the process. From the movements of processing film, coating my supports, to processing my prints, I am immersed in the physical component of producing an image.”
