@jessagilbert

Jessa's paintings and drawings emerge from her experiences in the backcountry exploring ways to blend and merge art and adventure. Her drawings, created outside during her adventures, capture the spirit of that landscape during her time there while serving as studies for larger scale, full-colour paintings. Being mobile and transportable is a large part of the art process, as she brings her studio along these adventures to create artworks within the setting of that experience.

The artworks are about compassion and the human experience. They are about struggle as much as they are about celebrating activity and these moments within the wild. These pieces explore the beauty and the mystery of wilderness and activity through the use of colour, shape, and line by being expressive and dramatic, bold and bright... because that is what life is. It is all of those heightened elements combined.

Relocating to BC in 2013 changed her art focus, and she has officially admitted to being an experiential landscape artist. You will find her in the mountains, at the beach, or on her bike exploring and working on the #getoutoftownvibe series.

@art_by_natasha_louise

I was born and raised in Prince George, British Columbia and have always been surrounded and inspired by nature. My work predominantly focuses on the blending of wildlife, landscapes and the abstract. Ultimately, my work is about exuberance and the joy that comes from creating, sharing and celebrating ART. This is my voice, my freedom, my journey.

I'm Kendra. I'm an artist and an adventurer. I was raised in the Canadian Rockies, and migrated to the coast to pursue the impeccable granite climbing, and deep powder skiing the Sea to Sky has to offer. Now I live in Squamish, but really home is where the mountains are.

So there's this feeling. Like when you're standing in an alpine meadow, or below snow-capped peaks, and you watch and sit as the alpenglow dances through the magic hour. It's a feeling of helplessness, you surrender yourself. I try to recreate that feeling in my work. I paint because I find it hard to truly take in the beauty, mystique, and magic of the mountains. It's my outlet. In life, I search for that flow state, whether I'm carving a beautiful line on my skis, or dancing up a granite face. I find that same feeling when I paint, and that is something I love sharing with people.

My paintings are acrylic on canvas. They're all of mountains.
