painting of a forest, looking up - main colours are mauve and turquoise

My forest paintings come from special off-the-beaten-path spots on the island that I’ve been to on my motorcycle. When I’m not out riding, I’ll immerse myself in the forest again by painting it… and hopefully bring some feelings from the outdoors into the living space.

Bobbi Bjornholt is an artist living in Victoria, BC, creating across diverse media including painting, relief printmaking and digital art.

Her post-secondary art journey began at Camosun College and concluded with a BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design in Vancouver.

Bobbi’s paintings of animals and forests celebrate our place in nature and the memories associated with exploring and appreciating wild places. If you’re in Victoria, you may have seen her octopus installation downtown on Douglas St, near Pandora as part of the City of Victoria’s “storefronts” exhibition. 

When she’s not in the studio, Bobbi enjoys the adventure of exploring off the beaten path, usually on a motorcycle, and creating art from the inspiration found on those trips.

Recently, she has also been exploring linocut printmaking and building a collection of hand-pulled prints.
