Jill Islay

My name is Jill McDonald and I'm a Scottish designer and illustrator who moved to Whistler 2 years ago to snowboard, draw and snowboard some more. My art is mainly influenced by mountain culture, nature, feminism and obviously Whistler. I try not to take my art too seriously; living in Whistler is energetic, fun, silly and weird and I want my art to reflect that. I love drawing on pretty much anything; snowboards, skateboards, helmets, shoes, snowboard boots, goggles… Everyone here is passionate about snowboarding/skiing and mountain life and I just really like feeding off that energy and making work about it.
