Arts Whistler Backdrop Sessions: Denise Hughes

TAG: Arts Culture

Posted by: Nikkey Ward

Arts Whistler has kindly let us share these fantastic videos introducing Whistler artists – you can see the original Backdrop Sessions post on The Gallery at the Arts Centre website.

The Gallery at Millennium Place chats with Whistler artist Denise Hughes.

Used to working with her hands as a chef, Denise naturally made the transition to pottery. Originally self-taught, her style formed with emphasis on creating practical pieces with a strong visual aesthetic, growth made possible with an apprenticeship with Whistler potter Vincent Massey. Denise draws her inspiration from BC’s natural beauty, making Whistler the perfect place to call home. A true artist, she has been working with clay for 16 years and is still fulfilled by her craft, finding joy every time she enters the studio. You can find Denise’s work on her website, at the Foyer Gallery and Mountain Decor in Whistler.
