Mica Topsheet Project: Meet Artist John Coleman

This winter we welcomed five British Columbia-based artists for an inaugural artist residency series at Mica lodge. The concept behind the residency was to provide the chosen artists with an experience that would inspire a unique piece of art. The art would ultimately become a custom top sheet for a few limited edition pairs of Big Bend Skis (handcrafted locally in Revelstoke BC). Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to our unique artist-friends and revealing the beautiful works that each of them created for the 2016 Topsheet Project. This week is illustrator and wellness and performance consultant John Coleman. Read on to find out more about how he finds creative inspiration in both the wonder of nature and human potential.
