Arts Whistler Backdrop Sessions: Helen Wojcik

Arts Whistler Backdrop Sessions: Helen Wojcik

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.

Another artist called here by the mountains, Helen Wojcik got her start showing her work at a local cafe. She credits much of her success to the opportunities provided to artists at big name Whistler events, and the ability to build relationships with local companies who have world-wide exposure.
Currently her work is heavily influenced by tattoo culture. Always experimenting and evolving her style, Helen is committed to the idea that the act of creating breeds more creativity. This artist is not one to turn an adventure down as evidenced by her winter artist residency at Mica Heli, mural painting in Kuta, Lombok and recent enrollment to a graphic design program in Vancouver. We can’t wait to see what she does next!

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.)
