Description

This colourful mural of animals and scenery reminiscent of the Squamish estuary brightens the wall of the Squamish Elementary School. It features many scenes and creatures, painted in bright colours.

Liesl Petersen, a resident of Squamish, BC, draws constant inspiration from her surroundings which is evident in her diverse portfolio of fine art and murals. Her focus spans from large-scale representations of the Sea-to-Sky region to intimate studio works in acrylic, ink, and watercolour.

With roots in painting contracting since 1997, Petersen has honed her technical skills to transition into a successful muralist, employing both precise mapping techniques and intuitive free-hand gestures. She seamlessly bridges interior and exterior murals, including groundbreaking aerial rooftop art in Western Canada. Petersen’s evolution as an artist showcases her graphic art abilities, culminating in multi-story murals that leave a lasting impact on the urban landscape.
