Andrea Morton I love to capture the feeling of a place in my paintings and photos. I want to tell a simple story of the moment. 
andrew mcaloon Andrew McAloon’s remarkable journey from professional skier to accomplished artist and passionate advocate for emerging talent in Vancouver, BC, is a testament to his unwavering dedication to the arts. Born with an innate sense of adventure and a deep appreciation for the outdoors, Andrew initially gained recognition as a professional skier, conquering some of the world’s most challenging slopes. Yet, his artistic spirit eventually led him down a different path. Guided by a profound desire to express his creativity and explore the profound connections between nature and art, he transitioned into the world of art.

Angela Muellers Angela’s Grandfather introduced her to oil painting as a child which influenced and inspired her. After completing four years in an abstract-based school, she returned to realism and has attended three private schools full-time for over a decade. Painting natural forms and the effects of light, while observing compositional elements are what excites her passion for painting. Landscape and Portraiture are Angela’s primary focus. Angela has taught the French Academic Program part-time for seven years. Angela has spent years climbing, hiking, and skiing in wild places.

Angela Van Cooten I spend my days mostly outdoors, but when I’m inside I’m creating, whether that is a painting or something else. Painting is a fun challenge for me, as it’s something I don’t naturally gravitate towards. This piece was a fun challenge and I hope it brightens your day.

Anik Rankin As a girl who grew up in Whistler, the majority of my inspiration comes from the environment that surrounds me. Many of my artworks combine 2D and 3D elements. These additions create a more impactful and understanding experience for viewers. I find that using texture allows me to express and make connections with the nature that inspired me.

Audrey Lundie    

I’m thankful to call Whistler my home and be part of the creative community here. I enjoy the inspiration of observing and painting the changing seasons in watercolour. The colours in nature—water, mountains, trees and snow—inspire me. Painting has given me the gift of truly observing my surroundings.

Bailey Shandro Art is not a medium, but a way of life. I believe art, like life, is meant to be imperfect, and learning to love those imperfections is what allows us to be grateful for the present moment. Change is the only constant in this life. I want to create art to express the ways in which the fleeting essence of life shapes us. My hope is that creating art can help others reflect on the ways in which life has shaped them.

Camila Pabon Exploring the vast potential of a blank canvas, I merge my architectural roots with a newfound appreciation for multicultural influences in my art. The vibrant hues of my hometown inspire me to create intricate, three-dimensional forms on a two-dimensional plane. Deconstructing the figurative into a lattice of colour and shape, I play with transparency, volume, and hierarchy to evoke movement and depth in my compositions. Each layer tells a story, inviting viewers to interpret and reimagine the essence of my art. Through this process, I capture the essence of three-dimensional figures in a two-dimensional world, sparking endless possibilities for reinterpretation.

Candace Espeseth Candace grew up dreaming of snow-capped mountain adventures, and in 2013 was fortunate to trade in her career in advertising in Vancouver for the big dream of living and playing in Whistler.  When the mountains aren’t calling too loudly, Candace likes to pursue her passion for painting, taking inspiration from Whistler’s breathtaking natural surroundings.  She paints with acrylics, using bright colours and bold brushstrokes to capture a variety of subjects. Candace has taken many workshops and painting classes over the years, most recently with local artists in Whistler and Pemberton.
Carolyn Douglas Carolyn began painting on canvas with acrylics during COVID. She typically paints with a palette knife and loves texturizing and layering in abstract paintings. When not painting her other passions include interior design, photography and real estate. 
cartney warren My artwork is an expression of the images and inspirations that float throughout my mind. I believe much of the beauty of our universe cannot be translated through language. Acrylic and oil paints are my medium of choice to manifest and document the world I see and feel around me.

Catherine Adamson I enjoy the beauty found in the chaos of nature. Tangled branches, tussled grasses, wildflowers growing uncultivated in reckless abandon. I paint with glee, throwing paint about and not caring about the mess – this is where I find joy. Each piece is an experiment in colour combinations, mark-making,  building depth with texture and layers. I use a latex-acrylic paint, which gives me the freedom to extend the threads of paint that flow down from a stick and onto a prone canvas. Each canvas creates music for my soul.

Catherine M Ivany Alpine glow is one of my favorite times of the day. 
Cathy Jewett My piece was inspired by a painting a friend of mine has.  The light on the horizon could be at the beginning or the end of the day.  Something is beginning or ending….

Charlotte Webber From an early age, Charlotte has had a passion for all things creative and explored many arts and crafting techniques over the years. After studying textiles print design at Brighton University, Charlotte developed a strong interest in bold graphic image, repeat pattern and shape work achieved by hand rather than by use of a computer. Hand-cut stencils are an integral part of Charlotte’s technique, and her inspirations include Japanese screen printing, natural patterns, and artists such as William Morris.

chris bennett Why I like and paint Mountains! Mountains are unimaginably diverse, they connect us as well as divide us. Mountains are sources of inspiration for art, music, stories and writing. Mountains are spiritual both through long tradition and contemporary wonder. We love looking at them. We climb, hike, ride, play or just rest in them in all seasons. I look at their scale to each other, the spaces between them, to understand how line, shape, form and light are used. My paintings aim to capture the magic of the sky and mountains. They are realistic but also impressionistic.

Christine Timm My interest in painting took flight when I was turning seventy and finally had the time and received the much-needed encouragement to pick up a brush or pencil again. Workshops with our newly formed seniors painting group and online lessons have provided guidance. During the past decade, I ventured into projects I would never have imagined possible and continue to enjoy the hours I am now able to spend painting and drawing.
Christine Bilodeau 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Christopher Cowen This is the first piece I’ve ever painted on a canvas. I bought the paints during COVID but never really used them. I decided to set this submission as a goal to motivate my participation in the arts as more than an observer. The painting is a recreation of a photo I took during the slower days of COVID when I seemed to notice the smaller joys in life more often.
IG @mountaincowen
Cindy Melendres My work is inspired mostly by nature, and small moments that grab my attention in my daily life. I love to evoke feelings with my art. Lately, I’m inclined to depict atmospheric scenes that portray ‘awe’, that remind us how small we are as humans. I also enjoy creating whimsical stories involving animals. Painting and illustrating are tools that I embrace to express feelings that I can’t any other way. My objective as an artist is to make you feel something, to remind you that you are alive, even a smile is good enough for me!

I draw inspiration from the ever-changing natural world, capturing the dynamic interplay of light and atmosphere using my many palette knives to lay down colourful acrylic layers.

Thus, inviting viewers on a journey of exploration, exploring connections beyond the confines of the canvas, and opening their hearts to the infinite possibilities that lay beyond.

Hannah McCurley Art is a language which is only spoken and heard through the demonstration or creation of visual, auditory, or performance experiences that express the creator’s imagination, skill, and emotional content, often intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. When both elements are captured it makes a powerful piece. Often is the case in children’s artwork which I came across during my years working with disadvantaged children in Mexico.

She mixes poetry with watercolour, acrylic dreams, the darkness and a little bit of razzle-dazzle. She loves to scavenge, imagine and create. Her art is a little skewed and a little crooked. Art is something that just flows through Justine, reusing things that aren’t loved anymore. Everything she makes is a little piece of her heart and soul, so find the light in the dark and let it burn.

Karen Close Circles seem to attract me, they end up in all of my artwork. Circles have many different meanings but the one that resonates the most with me is how it seems that everything in life seems to continuously come full circle, the circle of life, a symbol of infinity, with no beginning or end.

KATHLEEN TENNANT Growing up in the lower mainland, I didn’t take any art classes. I thought because I couldn’t draw I was not meant to make art. My artist days started more like crafting and not until my very late 30s. In 2009 I started selling my art on greeting cards and notebooks worldwide as well as several licensing opportunities that allowed my work to reach areas of the world such as Scotland, Dubai, the UK, and the United States. During COVID, I decided to focus on original works that were sustainable and timeless and brought joy to the homes they entered.

Kathleen Tennock I was born in South Africa where I studied Fine Art at the Johannesburg Art Foundation. For the last 25 years, I have been working primarily in clay, using primitive methods of firing like sawdust and Naked Raku. Without using glaze I can maintain the tactile quality of the clay, something that is very important to me because I want my work to invite touch as much as I want it to be visually pleasing. The raw texture of the clay and spontaneous markings created by the smoke give my work a natural and almost stone-like quality.

I want to capture small and insignificant moments in my life that have somehow left an impression on me, because I believe those are sometimes the most precious things in life. I aim to portray these moments with a colourful, sentimental perspective via both traditional and modern techniques.

Olivier  Salvas The collections and projects I create are based on the principles of a/r/tography.  When I plan a project, I think about topics that interest me, most of the time under the theme of identity and the environment. I choose abstract to paint because for me, the abstract is connected to emotions and it allows us to better understand the story, a bit like watching a play. The names of the paintings are also chosen to contribute to the narrative framework.

Describing his works as compassionate expressions of life’s peripheries, Paulo credits his aesthetic to years connecting people with wilderness as an adventure guide and a beloved grandfather’s lessons on conscious living. In art and life he chooses facing fears and arriving somewhere unexpected.

Stacey Bodnaruk Stacey Bodnaruk is a Whistler-based artist and photographer.  Stacey creates unique and meaningful artwork that inspires and evokes emotion. Her fine art photography pieces expertly blend multiple layers of original photos, which are harmoniously intertwined to create a dream-like story. Stacey draws inspiration from the mountains and ocean off the West Coast. Her approach, which she terms ‘artography’, layers and fuses anywhere from 3-10 photos, that are blended to create a vibrant, one-of-a-kind artwork that would never be achieved from one photo alone. Her work is equally abstract and a realistic portrayal of the natural world around us.

Steffi Lai As a graphic designer and artist, Steffi finds painting to be a very nice break from the computer screen, and an opportunity to create something more hands-on (as opposed to a keyboard or iPad), to diversify her freelance work. When she isn’t designing or creating art, she tries to wind down with tea and catch up on sleep, do crafts with friends, climb, ski, and eat a lot of snacks.  She is humbled and grateful to be able to live and work in Squamish, BC, which is located within the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw traditional territories.

Stella Schwartz Stella Schwartz resides in Whistler with her family.  She loves the colours of nature around Whistler, but she is truly inspired by a fresh palette, like a new box of crayons!

Stella has sold pieces in the Anonymous Art Show and Teeny Tiny Art Show in Whistler and the Show Us Your Art Show on Granville Island.

Stella loves art and experiments with many mediums including tempera, watercolours, acrylic, encaustic and most recently pencils.

Stephanie Lowe In my artistic creations, whether in the realm of 2D or 3D, I delve into the concept of wit and cleverness over notions of raw power and brute strength. Frequently featuring Foxes or Jesters as central figures, my work prompts contemplation on the efficacy of these characters as reflective symbols. It encourages us to ponder the potency inherent in wit and humour. How frequently do these metaphors transform our fears, vanities, and flaws into the subject of jests or even more audacious behaviors, all while avoiding our ire or repulsion?

Susan Moore I have always had a love of art and creating, but unfortunately I didn’t have the opportunity or the time for art because I was an orphan and was living on my own as a teenager.  However, I was always being led back to art. I even won a scholarship to Emily Carr, but I couldn’t attend because I had to go to work right after school to support myself.

I am so grateful because I now have a life where I can afford to spend time on my passion and create art. Thank you.

Theresa Columbus Theresa Columbus was born, raised and still resides in the Sea-to-Sky. She is self-taught and has painted for her entire life.

Her style is predominately semi-abstract impressionistic with a dash of surrealism; working primarily with acrylic paints, she creates art almost entirely from her heart. She chooses bold colour combinations with gestural brush strokes to support conveying emotion. Theresa has participated in several Art Battle competitions and in June 2022, went on to the British Columbia finals. She’s also visible in her community through her charitable donations and participation in various art exhibitions within Squamish and Vancouver.

Tracy Kaizer Born in Saskatchewan, Tracy has been creating art since childhood. Her journey with watercolours began through her formal training at Hughes Fine Art. After a long hiatus, she has picked up the brush again, inspired by the natural world’s colourful tapestry. She enjoys exploring other mediums such as pen and ink. Tracy resides in Whistler with her husband. When she’s not creating, you can find her on her ebike.
Vanessa Whitehead I live in Whistler and love spending time with the natural surroundings. Although art is not my full-time hobby, I am happiest when I’m creating!
Vera Paul The inspiration to finally settle on a medium came to me while watching one particular portrait artist on YouTube. I fell in love with colored pencils and from there have developed an art form that I love doing.
Wendy Hargreaves  Drawing with oil pastels feels like colouring when I was a kid and allows me to relax while I create.  When working on an image that represents our beautiful, natural surroundings my mind wanders and memories of camping and extraordinary hikes fill my soul.
