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.
First up is wood burner, painter and illustrator Ellie Rubincam. Read on to learn more about her passion for art, the outdoors, and revealing the "perfect tension of life and death in the natural world" through artistic wood burning.
