We’re delighted to announce the winner of our 17th annual Stampede Dream Home Artist Contest.

Calgary artist, Shawni Tolman, has been selected to showcase her artwork in the 2024 Stampede Rotary Dream Home!
Shawni’s signature artistic style, featuring her one-of-a-kind mud recipe, perfectly complements the theme of this year’s 2024 Dream Home — Natural Luxury Retreat.


Drawn to the Past, Inspired by Nature

Shawni Tolman’s fascination with the earth began in childhood, exploring alongside her dad on archaeology and paleontology digs. Immersing herself in the aged beauty of nature. “My hands were constantly in the dirt – questioning, uncovering, and marveling at the textures that whispered stories of time,” says Shawni. “This connection to the past, fueled by a lifelong curiosity, continues to guide my artistic journey as a self-taught artist.
