Welcome to the Effusion Art Gallery + Glass Studio, where we help facilitate the placement of art in residential and commercial spaces throughout Canada and beyond.
We love art and we’d love to help you create your own unique space, be it at your home or place of business.
To do so, we offer a revolving roster of some of Canada’s best and brightest contemporary artists, across various mediums, including gallery owner and resident artist Heather Cuell, who designs and creates her custom-made, decorative and/or functional kiln formed glass art to please the most discerning of clients.
Our gallery offers an eclectic selection along with friendly, professional services that include design guidance, on-site consultation & private viewing, professional framing and regional delivery & installation. Just a few of our purchase options include flexible layaway plans and our very popular ‘pre-sale’ experience.
Meet Our Team:
Raised along Autralia’s Queensland coast, Heather first visited Canada to ski almost 30 years ago. She quickly became enamoured with Canada’s breathtaking beauty and decided to stay. Now calling Invermere, BC home, she creates her own, unique kiln formed glass art while also running the Effusion Art Gallery + Glass Studio.
Heather continues to enjoy the Canadian outdoors with her husband, son and two dogs, and is most content in her studio, creating new and exciting cast glass art.
Originally from Banff, Alberta, Trent is our ‘go-to’ guy. He can build, fix and renovate at will and has an excellent understanding of art placement, design esthetique and spatial awareness. When not working, he can be found outdoors, enjoying Invermere’s natural bounty, usually with a coffee & Bailey’s in hand.
Kona & Nemo
Effusion’s dynamic duo, an Australian Cattle Dog name Kona and her scruffy Border Terrier sidekick Nemo, both greet our clients in a friendly manner. When not found underfoot, they’ll either be lounging about in the back of the gallery, or outside, barking incessantly to get back in.
A lifelong lover of beauty and design, Erin grew up in Invermere and left to pursue her education in nutrition and makeup artistry in Vancouver. After several years of nutrition practice in a busy West Vancouver clinic, Erin returned to the interior to merge her passions of health and beauty in a creative new direction. When not working, she can be found blogging, creating healthy masterpieces in her kitchen, or nerding out on colour theory.
Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Hannah came to Invermere in 2012. Before that, she was living and working in Tokyo for almost 10 years. When not at the gallery, she’s helping newcomers to Canada adjusting to life in this valley and providing community support services. Outside the work environment, she’s with her two rescue husky crosses, Soba and Darin.
