Local artist and businesses find creative way to celebrate Moose Jaw Warriors

Carly Jaye has been busy adding some familiar faces to business windows around town

Local artist Carly Jaye has been hard at work for various Moose Jaw businesses painting members of the Warriors hockey team to celebrate the team's advancement to the championship series.

She started painting on May 11 and completed all four paintings by Monday morning, May 13, allowing herself about 5-6 hours to complete each window mural.

With only a short window to do the murals before the two home games, she was only able to finish ones for The Mad Greek with a painting of Denton Mateychuk, Macaulay Agency with a painting of Jagger Firkus, Ottawa Real Estate with a painting of Brayden Yager, and the Co-op Grocery Store with our hometown boy Atley Calvert.

"A little bit of a marathon but that's what it's all about," explained Carly Jaye, "I just knew how much it would be appreciated by our community, just to have one extra addition to hyping up our home team.  It's all very worth it."

Jaye had done this type of window painting before with her ‘Live, Love, Local’ paintings. This is when she started to become pretty well-known in the community. In turn, this caused several businesses to reach out about painting the Warriors on their store windows.  

Carly Jaye has been doing art professionally for 15 years and has worked on murals at Boh’s Cycle and Sporting Goods, the Palliser Regional Library, the Park Hotel, and many other wonderful pieces around the community. She often employs a pop art style, which implements a lot of bright and contrasting colors.

"I am always open to hear people's ideas," stated Jaye.  "I always say I'm a one-woman show so I can't tackle everyone's ideas, but I certainly try to  do whatever I can with whatever vision people have that might require a little creativity and paint."
