About Larissa McLean

I have been a practicing artist for most of my life -- when I was 6, I put up an art stand rather than a lemonade stand in front of my house.

I studied printmaking at the Alberta College of Art and Design, then obtained a BEd from University of British Columbia. I've been a professional artist for over 20 years and an Art and Horticulture teacher for over 13 years.

Originally from Calgary/High River, AB, I now reside in Courtenay, BC after falling in love with the west coast's vibrant forest and sea wildlife ecosystems. I want my art to reflect the spiritual connection we all share with the natural world, and devote a portion of art sales to causes such as the Ancient Forest Alliance, the Cumberland Community Forest (, and seek to use my art to promote the preservation of the threatened ecosystems adjacent to Cowichan Lake on Vancouver Island.
