My Story

Wildflower Hunter | Biologist & Artist | Revert Mulsima

Creating out of Hinton, Alberta

I am inspired by nature. My works focus on the native plants that grow in and around Jasper National Park. My passion to create comes from my desire to educate and reconnect people with the natural world.

I believe that recognizing native plants is essential for establishing a connection with nature. The pieces I create are intended to help people learn the names and ‘faces’ of their leafy neighbors. These delicate designs draw your eyes in and can help you identify subtle identifying features of the plants

Each of my pieces capture the essence of the native plant and they encourage you to pay attention to the small things. I like to say that my art teaches you the importance of looking away from massive mountains and down towards the life growing all along the trails.

I use art to create change. I do this by donating 25% of my profits to charity, hosting paint night fundraisers, and donating 100% of proceeds from certain works of art.
