Gisele Bauche was drawn into the mystery of iconography, which offered her a sacred space for prayer, contemplation and spiritual growth. She studied under Marianna Savaryn, Vera Senchuk, Dimitri Andreyev and Father Nazari Paltaike. Her religious art, Giving Glory to God: An Artist Reflection, hangs in institutions and churches across western Canada.
