Larissa Blokhuis

Larissa was born on the great plains of Canada. She was six when she knew she was an artist. At seven, she found herself on a dock in Vancouver, watching a man paint dolphins. This painting was given to her, and now hangs in her home. At age fourteen, she took a glassblowing course. Four years later, at age eighteen, she began her BFA in glass. In 2008, at the age of twenty-two, she completed her BFA in glass at the Alberta College of Art and Design. The summer after graduating, she traveled to Murano, a world-renown glassblowing location in Italy, where she watched a man make a dolphin out of glass in thirty seconds.
