The Texqakallt Nation originally named Mount Robson Yuh-hai-has-kun, mountain of the spiral road, as indicated by the distinctive rock bands that encircle the peak. Robson is the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies and statistically speaking, climbing parties have a ten percent chance of reaching the summit. A long time test piece for Canadian alpinists, Robson requires mountain sense, skills and a blessing of good weather regardless of route difficulty. The Canadian Rockies are composed of sedimentary rock, have a distinctively low tree line, pointed glaciated peaks, wide valleys between those peaks, predictably cool temperatures and are largely protected by national parks. Formidable, unsullied, and vast, the Rockies have a way of cultivating humility and gratitude. 
Why Metal Prints?
Our aluminum clear gloss prints are made from 100% post consumer recycled metal and this delights us. We are always trying to find ways to make our products and creative processes more sustainable and printing our designs on metal reduces an enormous amount of waste. Our metal prints are 0.045 inches thick, surprisingly lightweight, permanent, durable, scratch resistant and can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth. Previously, I used an epoxy resin to finish the majority of my work because I loved the vibrancy and depth that resin offers. However, epoxy resined artwork creates an incredible amount of waste, is highly toxic and the finish itself is difficult to clean, easily scratched and adds considerable weight to finished pieces. Switching to clear gloss metal prints allows me to continue to offer work that has a clean, simple, frameless appearance. The gloss brushed silver also allows the metal to show through the lighter areas of my images and creates a unique, lively quality to my work while simultaneously highlighting the detail of each image.
