Culture

A few years ago I borrowed a friend’s car for a road trip. As I wound my way up the Kootenay Pass, the only music available was a stack of unmarked, burned CDs jammed between the seats. As I cycled through those discs each new track was an adventure.

‘Stories from the Shadows’ is a compilation of photos taken during my time working at The Free Press, from 2016 to 2019.

The title of the gallery represents a characteristic that all chosen subjects share – humility. Inspired by them, I brought their stories out of the shadows and in turn, allowed others the chance to be inspired as well.

These people are humble folk, and do not live to boast about their accomplishments. For this I respect them greatly.

I love my creative life—I wake up in the morning, make coffee, help the kids out the door to school, and at that moment the routine in my life ends. For the rest of the day, I could be setting some type for a new poster, carving a block for a print commission, working on paintings for a solo show, or putting together an application for a future public art call. 

There are a few moments and experiences that have lead Brina Schenk to where she is right now. It feels serendipitous as if there’s nothing else she should be doing. 

As an artist, the holiday season is so vital to my survival that I want to have it all ready. For many artists, more than half of the revenue we generate comes from sales in November and December—driven by art markets and gift sales for the holiday season.
