Courtney Keno was born in Winnipeg in 1992 to an artistic family, including several uncles who did Aboriginal art. She herself started making art at age four, and though she is completely self-taught, she hopes one day to develop her art into a profession. Courtney has become adept at using many styles and media.
Like every good artist, Courtney’s ideas are constantly evolving. One of her currently preferred styles is anime, and she is especially interested in animals and fantasy themes. She gets inspiration from a variety of artists on deviantart.com. Keno is quiet, modest and observant; she has a great sense of humour and is a good listener and quick learner.
“Art provides me with an outlet; I enjoy the therapeutic element of creating,” she says.
