Artists

There will be pockets of art in the most unexpected places
and hands-on opportunities for you to take part in.

Paintillio

Get your hands dirty
with Paintillio

The first fabulous touch point for our arts component is Canada’s largest paint-by-number outfit Paintillio! This incredible team will be onsite leading the community in the production of a one-of-a-kind, 8 x 20 foot mural highlighting the best of Squamish.

In the end this stunning (we’re confident, can you tell?) piece of art will be installed somewhere in the community so even your grandma can see your handiwork!

For me, painting has always acted as a medium for expression that surpasses the constraints of vocabulary. My art focuses on how our bodies transcribe meaning as we primarily communicate nonverbally. Simultaneously, my practice examines the nature of perception by revealing how appearance dictates social circumstance. I believe how we read art is similar to how we read people; It reflects just as much about others as it does ourselves.

All or nothing” is my unintentional perspective in life. Dramatic? Yes. Just like my paintings. Ironically, even though my paintings are bold and intense they inspire a sense of peace and reflection. I believe this sense of calm is born in a moment when something vast and majestic is encountered and it demands a ‘pause’ from the mental chatter.
