About the artist


My name is Kari-Anne Piche, I got my teaching certificate March 29th 2016. I am very excited to be a Paverpol instructor. My dad is a self-employed carpenter, and he always told my brother and me growing up that it was important to love what you do for a living so “you never feel like you worked a day in your life”.

I grew up in the small town of Espanola, Ontario. Everyone in my family sings or plays an instrument. I’ve always loved art of all media. My favorite part is to get my hands dirty. I got into a little bit of wood working: I refurbished old wooden chairs, made a table from a wooden spool and a couch from a wooden pallet. I taught Zumba for 6 years and I grew up around music I can play guitar and sing.

When I moved to the big city of Edmonton in 2011, there was so much to do artistically. I tried to get my hands on as many art opportunities as possible. What could I create? How and where could I do all the things out there! From painting to pottery, stained glass and glass blowing. It was then that I fell in love with Paverpol. It was my goal to one day bring Paverpol and all of its beauty back to my little hometown and share it with everyone at this end of the world. I am happy to say that I have successfully moved my business to Ontario just this July of 2016.

It is my dream to one day offer workshops from my very own Little Art Garage Studio beside my home. I am currently offering my workshops at the Parkside Centre here in Sudbury and I also do home parties call me for more information. You don’t need to be a member to join the Parkside Centre when I host a workshop, everyone is welcome at all levels. 

I am one of those artistic people who always have a million things going on in their head, what can I say i’m a busy bee. My brain calms down while I’m creating it – it’s like therapy. I am thrilled to teach others to work with Paverpol. Bring more joy to their lives through creative expression, while doing something I love. I can’t think of a better way to spend my day. Can it get any better then this? 

I look forward to meeting you in one of my workshops.
