DavidFoyJenniferSaleikDavid Foy & Jennifer Saleik studied together and gained their Fine Arts Diplomas in 2003 from Edmonton’s Grant MacEwan College.

The following year they formed the Dave and Jenn team, prior to earning their BFAs with distinction from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary.

Their distinctive approach to painting was described by Nancy Tousley, the Calgary Herald art critic, as “distinctive and engaging” and “highly innovative in both form and content, produced with a speed and assurance I have seen only once before.”

Similarly the award adjudication panel identified their “really original work.”
