Translating experience into memory through inspired creation.

Yukon artists you should know

I want to introduce you to two Yukon artists Thom and I met at the top of Chilkoot Pass.

The first is singer/songwriter Kate Weekes, who was guiding a group of hikers up through the trail. When she’s not out in the wilderness, she puts on a dress and makes some awesome music. Check out more on kateweekes.com

Corrie with Canidian Artist/park Warden Stephine Ryan

Next is painter Stephanie Ryan. I met Stephanie in 2012 at the top of the pass and hung out in the warden’s hut for a few days. Stephanie is still patrolling the trail and finding inspiration for her prismatic paintings in the landscape of the Yukon and Alaska. Check out stephanieryanart.ca
