Artists in the cabins » Richelle Bergen

Last week we welcomed artist Richelle Bergen from Altona, MB to the resort. Emily had the pleasure of popping in and taking a few shots of the project Richelle was working on.

Richelle creates block printed artwork, inspired by nature, botanical patterns and seemingly ordinary daily details.

I believe less is truly more, that less allows us to appreciate the simple shapes, patterns and colours that surround us every day. This is what I seek to create with my artwork.

Richelle spent her time in the cabin carving an intricate woodland scene on artist's linoleum or rubbing carving block, later to be hand printed with eco-friendly inks onto premium papers. 
Because of the hand printing process, each print may have slight variations, which make each one unique and original. We can't wait to see the finished product!

To learn more about Richelle, or to purchase some of her stunning prints, go to her website at richellebergen.com.
