Jessa Gilbert

Artist Medium(s): 
  • Painting

Jessa’s artworks celebrate wilderness and adventure by being colourful and expressive, bold and bright. Her paintings and drawings emerge from her experiences in the backcountry, capturing the spirit of the adventure during her time there, while serving as studies for large scale, full-color paintings and public art murals. Being mobile and transportable is a large part of the art process, as she brings her studio along on these adventures to create artworks within the setting of that experience.

You will find her in the mountains, at the beach, or on her bike exploring and working on the #getoutoftownvibe series. Jessa is currently based out of Squamish, BC, where the union of Art and adventure is part of her everyday life. She also works as a backcountry guide to curate tangible experiences in the outdoors for others. She has created public and private murals internationally, given talks about her art practice, and collaborated with various brands to share the stoke and vibrancy of an outdoor life.
