Billie Rae Busby is a contemporary visual artist who creates abstract paintings of the Canadian landscape. She uses a precise hard-edge technique and colour theory to reinvent her surroundings. Her paintings evoke wonder and possibility by depicting mood, memory, movement and time.
Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, she is inspired by both the complexity of urban architecture and the vast rural landscape. She strives to interpret ordinary places in a fresh, new context.
Her abstract landscape paintings have been exhibited in various galleries and exhibitions in Western Canada and have been acquired by several collections including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Canada House (the Canadian High Commission) in London, England.
The jersey barriers are her first painted murals with the Beltline Urban Mural Project.
