Description

This mural is painted on the kicking wall, and features a soccer player mid-kick, against a backdrop of silhouetted greyscale mountains and sky. The artist intended to depict gender equity in sports and share the familiar silhouettes of Squamish.

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.
