Name of creator
Sharon Condie was born in 1939 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba at the age of seven and graduated from Kelvin High School in 1957. Between 1957 and 1961 she attended the University of Manitoba where she studied Fine Arts and Interior Design. Ms. Condie's artistic abilities were first formally recognized in 1972 when she received a Canada Council Explorations Grant to develop several drawing techniques for children's books. In 1974 she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (Graphics and Film History) from Concordia University. Upon returning to Winnipeg, Ms. Condie contributed layout and background drawings to several award-winning animated films, including the National Film Board productions John Law and the Mississippi Bubble (1978), Getting Started (1979), and the Academy Award nominee The Big Snit (1985). In 1981 Ms. Condie co-directed Putting it in Perspective, a combined animation and live action video explaining perspective and optical illusion for Grade 10 Geometry students. This project won an Association for Media and Technology in Education Award in 1982. In 1997 she completed her second degree, a B.A. in Women's Studies (Gold Medal) at the University of Winnipeg. In addition to her valuable contributions as an artist in the film industry, Ms. Condie has extensive experience in promotional and script writing. She continues to work on several fiction and non-fiction writing and research projects.
The Sharon Condie fonds was donated to The University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Ms. Condie in 2005.
