Meet the team at LAB Studio! We love what we do, and we're dedicated to making each class as memorable, educational and fun as possible for all our students. We're all committed to the journey of art-making with you.
Hello! I'm Messy Jessy, the founder and co-owner of LAB Studio!
I have always loved expressing my life and words through drawings, paintings and all things crafty. After graduating with a Fine Arts degree from University of British Columbia, I moved to Hong Kong, and opened the very first LAB art studio there in 2014! For several years, I had a great time teaching children English and Art.
In 2018, I opened a LAB studio in my beautiful hometown, Vancouver! Now co-running the studio with my bestie, Trendy Wendy, we are happy to be able to do what we love, and sharing our passion for making art with others. Can't wait to keep creating with you all!
Hey! Trendy Wendy here, and I'm the co-owner of LAB Studio!
I majored in Visual Arts at UBC, and now I get to run LAB with Messy Jessy! I am a mom to Silly Sirus the Samoyed. It’s great hanging out with the kids that come to our studio, and doing fun events for LAB. Be sure to add us on on Instagram and 小红书 to know what we're up to!
