Arlana Sibelle

Arlana lives in Penticton and has been involved in the Arts, both as an artist and in actively supporting the arts in the community for over 40 years.

Arlana graduated in 1981 from NAIT, where she studied Commercial Signpainting (the lost art of hand lettering, airbrush and pinstriping). Her first paying jobs were painting murals on windows in southern California and setting up a Tshirt airbrush booth at a local market. Then her passion for art and fashion lead her to study Fashion Design at Fullerton College and ultimately to working with a fashion designer in the Garment District of LA.

While she dabbles in many creative pursuits, such as; singing, painting, wire wrap jewelry and yard art, her primary and longest running passion is pottery. She was introduced to Pottery when she returned to Canada in 1991, where she worked in a club environment for over 10 years and then went off to create her own Studio.

During these past 2 decades, Arlana has been very involved in the exploration of new pottery techniques and in developing her own always evolving signature style. Arlana has always enjoyed spending time teaching and sharing her experience and skills to both students and adults.
