Kathryn Beals is a professional artist with a background in forestry and environmental science. She donates a portion from each series in support of conservation nonprofits.
“I grew up on Vancouver Island, looking in tide pools, exploring small islands in a rowboat, and watching eagles on the beach. These places felt ordinary and limitless to me when I was a kid, but now as an adult, I know that BC’s coastal ecosystems are anything but. As an artist, my work is rooted in my love for these wild places, and I want to give back to organizations like Pacific Wild, who understand our connection to the land and are working to protect this special area of the world.”
