Back Alley Artists Night 2017: Jessica May

JESSICA MAY

ARTIST STATEMENT

I prefer to paint my adventures, big or small, because I feel that what I put down on a canvas has more meaning than a quick snapshot. It allows me to think about the details of that day, the environment, how I felt in that moment and from that create pieces using a variety of mediums.

We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful province where untamed nature is in our backyard. We have a great playground that, more often than not, gets taken for granted or treated poorly. My aim is to show just how magical, powerful and important this giant rock is through paint. We are guests in Mother Nature’s house so we best take care of her and all creatures who live here.
