Hello I'm Ginette, I do graphic design, art, illustration and surface pattern design.
Here on my blog you can see the pictures i've been making, stuff I've been up to and the inspiration I found in fun places like Whistler, Canada and Oxfordshire, England.

I went on a northern light hunting trip to Lillooet Lake, and I found the northern lights! Also the lake was beautiful, the minivan very comfortable for sleeping and I had some adventures in painting inspired by the lovely green lake and bleached driftwood at Strawberry Point, very successful trip.

Here is a collection of recent snaps of 'people enjoying the scenery'. From Whistler mountains and lakes to Stanley Park, via Tofino and The Chief. Enjoying the scenery has been my main activity this summer, it's very enjoyable and surprisingly easy, anyone can give it a go!

Here is July's calendar page! With a lovely Canadian riverside view, maybe someone adventurous has gone for a 'refreshing' dip in the water. Download it to print out and enjoy on my homepage. Stay curious!

The other day I went on a really fun hike to the train wreck near Function Junction. We followed the Cheakamus river with dramatic forest and waterfalls then found the old wrecked train carriages in the woods, covered in always-changing colourful graffiti. My friend Hannah has written all about our hike on her blog Bear Stories with lovely photos and lovely words, plenty more adventures to come on there.

I have arrived back in Whistler, Canada. It is damp and rainy, but there is lots of exploring to do before the winter arrives, to see forests and lakes and things like that. This is an illustration of some explorers and a rushing waterfall.

Winter is coming, and here are some winter landscape illustrations with a few photos from Whistler, Canada. I was looking at retro travel posters and paint by numbers landscapes for inspiration. The first illustration is an inuksuk at the top of 7th Heaven, inuksuks are Inuit stone landmarks built for various reasons, but my favourite purpose I have read about is to remind travellers that they are not alone and they are on the right path, which is nice. The second illustration is the view from Big Red Chair going up Whistler mountain, it's a really long chairlift, but with some friends on a sunny day it's a pretty good way to travel. The last photo is the glorious early morning view from the Whistler village gondola, full of excitement and anticipation.

A badge I've been working on inspired by the great outdoors. The background picture is from a sunny spring hike with some lovely people to a splendid waterfall near Whistler, Canada back in March.

Gone boarding, Whistler, Canada - Ginette Guiver
I have just returned from a grand snowboarding odyssey to Whistler, Canada and the Dolomites, Italy.
I learnt a lot, hung out with some wonderful friends, filled my instagram with powdery goodness and gathered lots of inspiration for the next adventure. Here is a floaty, fresh track illustration in dreamy 2016 colours.
