Kelly Kurtz

Kelly is a Squamish-based watercolour artist who creates west coast-themed artwork for anyone with an appetite for outdoor adventure and a lover of all things west coast. She founded Salted Spruce Artwork in 2022 and released her first original watercolour collection – Coastal Nostalgia – featuring beautiful flowing kelp that reminded her of her time spent as a backpacking guide on the West Coast Trail & many other coastal expeditions.

Coastal ecosystem protection & conservation are values that are threaded through her work, and some of the causes she donates partial proceeds from her artwork are 1% for the Planet & Pacific Wild. She has also supported fundraisers with her artwork and mentored up-and-coming coastal mountain athletes through Mountain Mentors.
