Arts Whistler has kindly let us share these fantastic videos introducing Whistler artists – you can see the original Backdrop Sessions post on The Gallery at the Arts Centre website.

The Gallery at Millennium Place chats with Whistler lampwork artist Linda Davies.

A Whistler resident since 1997, Linda Davies works magic with glass, colour and light. Taking inspiration from the view outside her Whistler studio she crafts delicate lampwork glass beads and jewellery with no two pieces the same. Take a peek inside her studio in the second video from the Arts Whistler Backdrop Sessions series, and keep an eye out for Linda at the 2016 Whistler Farmers’ Markets.

As well as spending time with local artists to learn what makes them tick the good folks at Arts Whistler are also organizing an entire summer of festivals, events and hands-on art workshops. Let your creativity unleash when you visit Whistler this summer.


Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
