About Kanako

Artist, illustrator, mom and a long-term rabbit lover, Kanako Heinrichs is all about creating paintings that are colourful, thoughtful and a little magical.  


Kanako has a BA in Art & Design from University of Alberta and has been participating in numerous juried group shows and solo shows in British Columbia, Canada.  

Her favorite mediums are gouache, acrylic, and oil.  

Kanako paints out of her "tiny studio" in a quaint little fishing village called Steveston, Canada.  When she is not painting, she can be found riding her cargo bike around the village or having afternoon tea with her two girls.
