Andrea Kinsey-Jauquet was born in 1943 and grew up in Fish Creek.  Returning home after retirement and dismayed by the burgeoning condo developments, she began painting the familiar building of Fish Creek she so fondly remembers; some still standing, but many lost to :the newer” Fish Creek.  Her paintings and stories take you back to the 1950’s and 60’s in a small, quiet tourist town.  She invites you to share her memories.
