ABOUT LEAH PIPE
For 20 years, Leah Pipe has lived in the coastal mountain ranges of northern BC :: in a small town called Hazelton. Her community is located in the heart of Gitxsan territory with an incredible river running through it, the Skeena River. She works as a professional artist, graphic designer and as the Communications Director for Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition - she's the fourth generation of Pipes to live in Hazelton.
Members of the Gitxsan Nation have often told Leah that she has the Heart of a Raven - creative, curious and drawn to beauty. Her work is both simple and detailed :: capturing natural elements and portraying them in a striking, yet minimalistic layout. She aims to force her viewers to truly examine the micro-amazing details of a feather, a raven's beak, snow-capped mountains, salmon tails and the shapes of wolves' ears. It's the small details found in nature that inspire Pipe to share her art with others.
