ANOUK HARTWELL

Born and raised amongst the wind swept fields of the prairies, Anouk’s parents expanded her world with unforgettable trips to Vancouver Island, which she has now called home for over ten years.
From an early age she was encouraged to pursue her creative side, but was drawn towards adventure tourism. After years of dogsled and kayak guiding and working with outdoor adventure companies she returned to painting.
Her acrylic paintings on canvas or cork hats explore nature and adventure through mountains, oceans, forests and multi-hued skies found mostly on the island.
