THE MOUNTAIN COLLECTION
The Mtn Collection is more than just a new colorway, it celebrates a lifestyle. Those who are Raised to Roam. The friends and families that live and breathe the mountain air and continue to get after it year after year. Passing the thirst for adventure on to the next generation takes grit, passion, and determination. Staying warm is a huge part of it.
"The goal of the artwork is to celebrate the joy of wilderness and adventure."
Jessa's paintings and drawings emerge from her experiences in the backcountry, blending the creation process with adventure to capture the spirit of exploration during her time outside. These adventurous artworks also serve as studies for murals, bringing backcountry adventures back to urban and daily life.
The artworks are about the human experience and temporality of wilderness. They aim to celebrate play and exploration, and these moments within the wild. These pieces explore the connectedness between all parts of the adventure - the sky, the trees, our footprints, etc - through the use of one, single, continuous line to create the foundation for each piece.
Relocating to BC in 2013 changed her art focus, and she has officially admitted to being an experiential landscape artist. Her pursuits of art and adventure led her to become a backcountry guide as well. You can find her at Baldface Lodge in the winter working as a snowboard guide, or in the mountains, at the beach, or on her bike exploring and working on the #getoutoftownvibe series.
