"With creative balance between elemental layers and visual concepts, I am able to communicate a story which leaves the viewer directed but not limited to the freedom of interpretation.”
Stacey Bodnaruk is a Canadian, West Coast-based artist and photographer who has combined a passion for the Pacific with her art, creative design, photography and interior design background.
Stacey creates unique and meaningful artwork that inspires and evokes emotion. Her fine art photography pieces expertly blends multiple layers of original photos, which are harmoniously intertwined to create a dream-like story.
Stacey draws inspiration from the mountains and ocean – an influence of power and beauty that she passionately incorporates into both her personal and professional life. She captures images from mountain vistas, Canadian wildlife, surf breaks, old growth forests and wild places around the world. Images from her current collections are curated from travels around British Columbia, Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica, and from her home town of Whistler.
Her approach, which she terms ‘artography’, layers and fuses anywhere from 3-10 photos, that are blended to create a vibrant, one-of-a-kind artwork that would never be achieved from one photo alone.
Since 2014, her work has appeared in art exhibitions in Whistler, Squamish, Vancouver and Tofino. Her work can also be seen at various commercial spaces, galleries and boutique hotels throughout British Columbia. Although her clients include a strong local following, her artwork is also sold and collected across the globe.
