Contemporary muralists and portrait painters Lacey Jane and Layla Folkmann met while studying Fine Art in Edmonton, Alberta at Grant MacEwan University in 2007. Their passion and dedication to artistic practice formed an inseparable friendship and forged a dynamic professional collaboration for over 8 years specializing in monumental Public Art. Working exclusively as a synchronized duo, they have produced over 50 murals all across Canada, from a 4,000 square foot farm silo in the Ontario countryside to the notable Rogers Place Arena in downtown Edmonton. Internationally, they have painted in Honduras, France, and Northern Uganda, where they volunteered with an orphanage and an artistic centre for the reintegration of former child soldiers. They currently operate out of Montreal, Quebec, where their practice is dedicated to their collaborative efforts in exterior murals and further developing their own individual studio practice.
