Brenna has spent two winter seasons living at Big White Ski Resort; British Columbia’s second-largest resort, and one which clings to Big White Mountain 1700 metres above sea level.
As an Australian with limited experience of snow, Brenna found herself enchanted by the sparkle of frost in the evenings, the post-card perfect snow-capped chalets, and the stillness that comes from a world that is forever in the arms of winter. Morning skiers are framed by mist rising from the spectacular valley below the mountain; Icicles hang from trees, clinking in the breeze; and vivid sunsets are followed by the twinkle of Christmas lights on almost every building.
This series depicts scenes that speak to Brenna of the essence of Big White Ski Resort. The ski resort itself speaks of the extreme differences between Canada and Australia – differences that Brenna has embraced in these works.
