Arts Whistler Backdrop Sessions: Heidi Denessen

Arts Whistler Backdrop Sessions: Heidi Denessen

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.

Artist Heidi Denessen doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t creating. A mixed media artist, she makes masterpieces on canvas and fabric transforming the later into apparel that embodies the Whistler spirit. She embraces natural and recycled materials for her locally and ethically made clothing line. A savvy artist who has built her own business around her creativity, Heidi’s art is available at local markets, her online shop, the Audain Art Museum and the Gift Shop at the Maury Young Arts Centre.

Nikkey

Nikkey

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place (whether her audience is listening or not) 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.)
