'Beneath the Bark'

Eileen Walsh

Artists Lynda Fownes, Katie Rodgers & Eileen Walsh capture the resilient natural world around us; celebrating the beauty found on their favourite hiking trails; showcasing the fragility & fortitude in local ecosystems; & reminding us of the therapeutic qualities of being surrounded by nature.

Lynda Fownes is a North Vancouver artist whose realistic & textured mixed media paintings of rocks weathered by streams & trees with peeling bark, strive to make the insignificant significant & emphasize the beauty of maturity.

Katie Rodgers, a painter from North Vancouver, creates expressive & gestural depictions of old growth stumps that are regenerating & growing new trees, highlighting the joy & energy in new life & possibility.

Eileen Walsh is a Squmaish based artist whose hyper realistic paintings focus on micro details of branches, lichen & moss; intersecting both science & art as a way to find introspection through observation.
