CANADIANS WHO STANDOUT – DALIA REBOH (39/150)
People are lucky if they ever find the love of their lives. I am lucky to say that found mine the day I could hold a pencil. Art has been one of my biggest passions before I could even write. I was maybe just learning my ABC’S, but I was already an expert at destroying all my parents beautiful furniture with paint.
Growing up, no matter what, my parents would make sure that our entire family of five went skiing at Lake Louise every single Sunday. Both having immigrated here, my parents never took for granted how incredibly beautiful Canada’s landscape was and how important it is to enjoy the space, clean air and spectacular outdoors many cannot.
I no longer destroy my parent’s furniture with paint but my love for art and the outdoors has never left. I wanted to create a jewellery line that is intrinsically Canadian and is inspired by its majestic outdoors but retains that “pencil sketch” quality you might find in some of my sketchbooks. I would have never come up with any of these designs without the inspiration of the peaks and prairies of Canada. I am thankful to have been able to partner with the Nature Conservancy of Canada so I can do my small part to give back to a place that has given me so much.
