2018: MOUNTAIN MEMORIES

Leaf Cross Health Society, Nelson, BC, alley entrance

Honored to be part of the first ever Nelson International Mural Festival, I wanted to take the opportunity to address the local issue of the endangered Selkirk Caribou herd in a beautiful and approachable way. Although there are many reasons for the herd's decline, the local wolf population has been persecuted for it. I wanted to create a memorial, for both species, as well as show how integral they are to each other and the mountains that they are both born of.

2015: TREASURE WITHIN

collaboration with artist Tanya Pixie Johnson & funded by Rambling Rose's Treasures, the CBT, & the CKCA

 

This mural project was inspired through a growing relationship between Rosemary Fabius, the owner/operator of Rambling Rose's, and Stephanie Kellett. Rose had already commissioned Stephanie for signage for the front of her business, as well as signage celebrating the act of shopping locally. Rosemary has an alter-ego she calls Rambling Rose - a fiercely independant wanderer and treasure-hunter.

2015: NEVER CRY WOLF

The Blue Mule Espresso Bar, Nelson, BC


Commissioned by the owner of The Blue Mule Espresso Bar in Nelson, BC, this mural was an honoring and celebration of the population of Wolves in the Kootenay region. The winter previous, the Provincial government had engaged in a large-scale cull of the wolves. The plan is to eventually kill 184. The reasoning was to help protect the dwindling Woodland Caribou population, despite much controversy on the subject.

 

2014: COYOTE FALLS IN LOVE WITH THE RAIN

collaboration with Tanya Pixie Johnson, Vanessa Bate, Bubzee Feller, and Mogli Squalor & funded by the CBT & the CKCA

 

The face of Winlaw changed in October of 2014, when five Slocan Valley artists painted a mural on the Mini-Mart. Stephanie Kellett got the idea while painting a sign for Kayu's Cafe. "This town is fun of really colorful people, and yet our downtown is so drab, it didn't make sense. I saw the mural as an opportunity to bring color and vibrancy to the townsite." said Stephanie.
