Winlaw-based artist Rabi’a was born in Holland, and emigrated to Canada at fifteen with her family of ten. She came to her calling as an artist and sculptor via many bends in the road, and not until she was in her 60s. Artistically self-taught, she learned to weld a number of years ago and continues to create in her current passion – metal, often adorned with colourful paint, mosaic tile, and hidden objects to delight the viewer.
Ark, A Place of Refuge is recognizable Rabi’a – colourful, whimsical, and full of charm.
