Name of creator
Isobel MacLaurin is a long-time Whistler resident and painter whose murals can be found on Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains, on the Valley Trail, in several Whistler Parks, at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, in various Burnaby Parks, at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji, and in the Cook Islands. She received the Citizen of the Year Award for the Whistler Chamber of Commerce in 1991. Isobel is a charter member of the Whistler Public Arts Committee, the Whistler Arts Council, a trustee of the Whistler Museum and Archives Society, and a long time member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. She has volunteered her artistic talents for many years for the children of Whistler, and recently for the children of an East Vancouver school. At her Alpha Lake studio, Isobel provides art courses to groups by appointment.
