Springtime Handmade Market Vendor Profile: Van Charles Art
From the most barren yellow plains of the prairies to the highest peaks of the rockies, Canada’s diverse landscape presents it’s brave visitors with a lasting reward; a moment in time where your breath stops and the one to follow is like your first. As an artist, I seek to immortalize this experience and foster the viewers appreciation for the natural environment. To date my body of work narrates an authentic adventure through the Canadian wilderness. Equipped with a backpack and a camera, I travel to the deepest points of the Canadian backcountry to capture images of nature that will later be digitally collaged, applied to hand crafted wooden supports and detailed with acrylic paint.
