"Kootenays in Colours"

Artist Statement

Embarking on a journey through the vibrant landscapes of the Kootenays and beyond, I was awash with a spectrum of colour and feeling that beckoned me to capture its essence. The picturesque scenery, from verdant valleys to crystal-clear lakes, offered a canvas unlike any other. This adventure was not just about travel; it was a pilgrimage in search of inspiration for what would become my first art gallery exhibit: Kootenays in Colours.
