"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.

My initial enchantment with the Kootenays was ignited by a single, captivating photograph that showcased the areas awe-inspiring beauty under the glow of an afternoon sun. This image, alive with vibrant hues and a tranquil yet wild essence, planted a seed within me. It was not long before this blossomed into a fervent yearning to immerse myself in these landscapes, to see, feel, and ultimately paint them through my own lens. This anticipation of discovery, of unearthing new vistas and hues, was the wellspring of my inspiration. The natural splendor, and shifting seasons, unveiled fresh palettes and moods, feeding my artistic vision and setting the stage for my journey into art.

Choosing the right venue was critical—a place that not only highlighted the art but also echoed the spirit of the Kootenays. As I was born in Fernie, so shall be my art. The Arts Station was my only choice for my first gallery show. It was an environment that promised engagement and appreciation from a diverse audience. The vibrant colours and landscapes that I had so meticulously translated onto canvas will be the subjects of admiration and critique. This vibrant interaction will be the ultimate affirmation of my journey, a sign that my canvas has become a bridge. This bridge will be the link between my inner world with the outer world of others, fostering a shared experience of wonder and reflection. I step into the future, ready to embrace the myriad of colours and feelings that await me.
