Came across Anja Jane's art work quite by accident. We don't live in Vancouver, but spend a substantial time visiting. On our winter visits, skiing and snowshoeing at Cypress are always scheduled into our itinerary. On our most recent visit, in March, we stopped in at the lodge for coffee and a 'sticky bun'.
Upon leaving the lodge we spotted a 'catchy print' near the exit. Upon a closer look, we realized that this artist was not only accomplished, but expressed accuracy and passion in her work.
Upon arriving home, we researched via the internet, and ordered 2 prints. One for our son-in-law's birthday, as he spends every Saturday at Cypress with his young family, who are involved with ski league. And, one for ourselves. Both mounted in plain white Ikea frames. They are fabulous!
My hope is that Anja Jane comes to the Okanagan to capture some of our iconic sights, and, some of our everyday (ho hum) sights that maybe get missed by local eyes.
In summary, the Cypress print is 'eye catching beautiful'.
We look forward to following the career of this 'west coast' artist.
There is nothing better then stopping for hot chocolate at Hollyburn Lodge after cross country skiing. The best place to warm up, dry off and catch up with friends. I love the colors and fun little skiers and bears. How lucky we are to have these facilities so close to the Vancouver. Every time I look at the print I get excited for winter!
