A-frame Cabin Mix
This piece was inspired by the many styles of A-frame cabins in Whistler, BC.
The artist’s home of Whistler is a mountain biking wonderland. Every year, the world’s largest mountain biking festival is held at the resort: Crankworx Whistler. Heckler’s Rock became an annual tradition to cheer on racers. This piece celebrates the good years on the rock, before its enthusiasm became a little too much.
This piece was prompted by a 1983 photo from the Whistler Museum and Archives’ Whistler Question Collection, a collection Alyssa worked on cataloguing and digitizing as an archivist.
Pemberton Train Gap
Provoking awe at the sheer adrenaline required to complete this famous mountain bike jump over the train tracks near Pemberton, BC, this piece is based on the feat and resulting photo of fellow Whistlerite Jonathan Webb.
Camping in the Mountains
This piece involves beloved elements of West Coast living: camping, black bears, mountains, and an endless sky of stars.
Utah Mountain Biking

Polar Bear Inukshuk
This Canadiana piece is inspired by the Nanookshuk statues created by artist Charles Johnston, which can be found scattered around the Legistlative Building area in Winnipeg, MB.
One of Alyssa’s favourite mountain animals, this bobcat sports the iconic Brandywine Falls cascading from his woodsy brow.
