Ingrid Hollander studied Civil Engineering graduating from Carleton University in 1996. She then joined the Canadian Forces working as a Military Engineer for a couple of years. Ingrid always loved home design so she began her own interior design business and began flipping homes for the next 10 years. Always interested in art, she began painting at the age of 10 and is primarily a self taught artist. After an art inspired trip to New York City in 2010, Ingrid and her husband Matt decided to open up Orange Art Gallery in Ottawa. Although running the gallery and raising 3 kids takes up most of her time, Ingrid still loves to find time to paint in her home studio.
