We in Whistler love the winter, whether we’re spending it on the ski hill, snowshoeing in the backcountry, or building a snowman with the kids; but it does wreak havoc on our skin. Cold temperatures followed by blasts of central heating dry our skin out, leaving us feeling chapped, tight and sensitive. However, a visit to a local spa can help remedy the ravages of winter.
Being an artist is risky. It takes years of practice, whether swinging a paintbrush, drawing a carving knife, or taking countless photographs. There’s no guarantee you will master your art form, or that collectors will buy your artwork if you do. And yet, courageous creatives take the leap. Some emerging artists, often with a modest body of work, are just starting on their careers.
