Mediterranean Flair for Creativity Leanne

With a Mediterranean background, Toula Prins has a flair for creativity combined with a focused ability to capture detail and color. Toula has been featured on Global Television, as well as in local Edmonton galleries, newspapers and magazines.

In the 1980’s, Toula enrolled in a pottery class with the Sturgeon River Pottery Guild in Gibbons. The Pottery Guild offers adult classes, kids classes, and one raku workshop per year. They also seek to serve the communities of Bon Accord and Gibbons by participating in celebrations, providing demonstrations and community projects.

It was at the Sturgeon River Pottery Guild that Toula explored various techniques and found herself more interested in hand building pottery. The project that led to her current career path was her personal inspiration to create small Greek-influenced houses as a small village to place beneath her Christmas tree. This created a buzz amongst visitors who began asking if they were available for purchase. As word began spreading, people specifically asked for miniature replicas of their family homes. Thus, her business was officially created. Using either drawings or photographs, Toula creates miniature replicas of detailed homes to be treasured now and for future generations.
