Multifaceted visual artist and painter, Laura Jane Klassen brings bold colour and contagious energy to the rain-drenched, snow-covered coastal mountain region of Canada’s west coast.
Her art invites viewers to engage with the technicolour energy of life, the freedom and sheer joy of the mountains, and inspires them to immerse themselves in the beauty that surrounds.
To Laura, art is both an expression of her own passion and a tool for relationship building, personal growth, and social connection.
The act of creating is a generous act, just as it is when gifts are received. By living in an economy of giving and graciously receiving, I, Laura, would like to give a portion of every sale back to an outstanding Vancouver Downtown Eastside non-profit, Pivot Legal.
For every sale made on the 'All My Sisters' products and printed artwork, Studio LJK will be donating 12% off every sale to Pivot Legal for their "work in partnership with marginalized people and grassroots organizations to challenge legislation, policies, and practices that undermine human rights, intensify poverty, and perpetuate stigma. We strategically focus our efforts on the most tangible human rights in order to improve the immediate situation of the people we work with, while creating lasting change that resonates across the country."
ALL MY SISTERS ARTWORK
The 'All My Sisters' original painting was created in collaboration with David + Miranda Gariepy with hopes of capturing the essence of the Three Sisters, located in Canmore (and Kananaskis region of) Alberta. These wonderful art collectors own the original work and given permission to replicate the design in hopes of celebrating the good works of Pivot Legal.
Prints, cards, sublimated canvases are all available in the shop.
