Landscape as Muse

Season Two - Episode 14

Grasslands National Park with Jane Isakson
White Pass is located in the southwest corner of the Yukon Territory near the Alaska border. As it is situated at the convergence of the wet Pacific Coastal and the dry Mid-continental climatic zones, this landscape is characterised by fierce storms and rapid seasonal changes. Working amid White Pass's chiselled mountains, gnarled trees, and crystal clear streams, painter Jane Isakson investigates the area’s colours and unique landforms. Later in the studio, Jane abstracts her earlier sketches into a series of canvases.
