I create art because it makes me feel a deep sense of presence and fulfillment. Being able to visually express my love for the varieties of life that the world seamlessly connects is both endlessly inspiring and profoundly humbling. Through my artworks I aim to draw attention and appreciation to an array of landscapes and wildlife with hopes to share their story and need for protection.
I specialize in wood based visual art, but am also experienced in other mediums such as graphic design and acrylic paints. I strive to use reclaimed wood wherever I can to minimize my impact on old growth forests and give the trees another chance in being admired visually through home decor instead of heading to the landfill. Through wood burning I create representations of a diverse selection of animals, plants, and landscapes to capture their beauty and instill a feeling of motivation among humans to conserve and protect their prolonged existence.
To express, reciprocate, and instill a sense of gratitude for the natural world and the abundance of gifts it provides to us.
My roots first started to grow in the flat-lands of Saskatchewan, Canada, although when I graduated high school in 2009 I chose to immediately follow my heart westward towards the mountains. I was labelled a tree-hugger from a young age due to my unwavering love for nature, which I’ve come to recognize as a pretty awesome compliment. I was trained at The Centre for Arts and Technology in Kelowna, BC, as a graphic designer and after completing my diploma I decided for the next 9 years my focus was to travel as much as I possibly could. I worked and saved obsessively which allowed me to travel 31 different countries in that time span. On my very first over-ocean trip in 2012, while living in Brisbane, I began to draw freely as a hobbie and fell in love with the creative process. Throughout the years my skill, style, attention, and ideas have gradually grown into something so much bigger and wholesome.
I’m grateful and fortunate that both my father and grandfather were extremely talented wood workers. As a teenager I was gifted my grandfather’s old woodburning tool and eventually I began teaching myself the skill of pyrography (woodburning). Over many hours, years, and upgrades I’ve come to be an expert at the niche and have followed my family’s love for woodworking.
I can’t believe we own one of these beautiful works of art! Jynae did a custom piece for us that had mountains made with barn board from our farm. It is absolutely amazing! Every piece she does is unique. Thank you Jynae! You are a very gifted artist.
Jynae's art is out of this world. Every time I go to her page I am in awe of what work she does and I try to dream up what piece she can add next into our home. I have now gotten 2 pieces made by her and each time the process is seamless. She properly lets me know the budget and what’s possible and seems to pull off the most gorgeous pieces. It always comes at the highest quality, ahead of schedule and beyond expectation. I highly recommend for any wood working idea take it to her, and she creates absolute beauty out of your wacky ideas.
You know that feeling you get when you see a piece of art and feel like it was made for you? That’s how every piece Jynae makes makes me feel, and I would buy them all if I could. Fortunately, I am the proud owner of three of Jynae’s works of art, and personalized hand-written note I’ve received with each one has me convinced that they actually were secretly made for me before I even knew I wanted them. Get out of my head Jynae! Seriously though, this girl is incredibly talented, and I’ve been so happy to be able to support her through her artistic journey. Know that when you buy a piece of artwork from Jynae, you are not only getting a beautiful piece of high-quality art, you are also supporting an absolutely beautiful high-quality human being, the Canadian art scene, and sustainable art. I can’t wait to get my next piece!
I saw one of Jynae's pieces online and was instantly quite taken with it. The textures of the wood, and the mix of colours really captured the spirit of the mountains. More than anything, it reminded me of home next to the Rockies. Everyone I've shown it to thinks it's a stunning piece, and I'm really happy to put it up in my home. I would recommend Jynae's work to anyone - and will be keeping my eye on her page for future pieces!
I wanted to get a portrait done for my mother's horse who passed on. My friend suggested Jynae. She got back to me quite quick and once we figured out the photo she would go by she got on it right away. She gave updates on her progress continually and was very professional. Her work speaks for itself, I was absolutely blown away by the portrait and would highly recommend her to anyone.
I am in love with my custom piece by Jynae! From the time of design to delivery, Jynae was great at communicating and kept me in the loop. I saw a piece that I liked and Jynae was able to take that and adjust the dimensions and colours to my liking. She took the time to send multiple pictures of various design and colour options which I appreciated. When the pieces arrived in the mail, I was very happy with them. Nothing was damaged or falling apart in any way. They are very sturdy, solid pieces that have various depths and textures. They look even more amazing in person. The pictures don't do her work justice. If I could, I would buy everything she creates. Thanks again Jynae! Looking froward to working with you on more pieces in the future.
Jynae designed the logo and branding kit for our brewery, taking scattered ideas and creating something not only beautiful, but a piece of artwork that 5 partners could actually agree on! She was communicative, enthusiastic, and timely, having mockups ready well before the specified time frame. We are so excited to have her artistic talent behind our brand and cannot wait to collaborate on many more projects!
I'm overwhelmed by the art piece I recently aquired for my parents that Jynae made with such care and talent! Jynae has an immaculate eye for both beauty and pristine craftsmanship, it's incredible! I love the note she wrote me that told me where the materials came from. The family history is very special. My parents will proudly display this in their new home. It's truly a beautiful piece! I'll need to get one for myself now. Keep up the great work Jynae!
I bought one of Jynae’s pieces as a Christmas gift for my parents because I wanted to buy them something beautiful, intricate, and handmade. I was not disappointed. Her work checks absolutely every box. It is original, locally sourced, sustainable, and made with a meticulous attention to detail. Jynae pours herself into absolutely every piece that she creates, carefully choosing different colours and wood types before crafting them into beautiful mosaics of outdoor landscapes, making a perfect addition to any home.
I truly believe this is some of the most unique artwork you will ever come across! Every piece displays plenty of Jynae’s creativity, dedication and love. I have purchased two items from Jynae. For Christmas I ordered a set of four, beautiful wooden coasters, and recently just purchased a wooden, mountain Mandela wall piece. Both purchases came with a lovely little thank you card and some info regarding the art process. Both of my items came on time and all in one piece. I definitely would recommend this amazing Local small business. Jynae’s work is absolutely one of kind! I will one hundred percent be ordering more art from Art and Airplanes in the future.
Jynae’s has a gift! Her talent, passion and dedication to her craft are undeniable. I fell in love with a piece she advertised and quickly purchased it. Not long after I commissioned her to make custom design to add to my collection and was blown away by how amazing it turned out! Her designs are flawless and she captured everything I wanted in my newest addition. She’s not only extremely talented but incredibly lovely to work with. She went above and beyond to satisfy this client!
Jynae's work is absolutely captivating! She painted the most incredible mural in our home, and it completely transformed the space. She was very responsive to our feedback and gave great recommendations that made the finished piece something way beyond our expectations. Jynae is an incredible artist and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Jynae is an amazing artist and wonderful person to work with. She custom designed a nature-inspired tattoo for me and perfectly captured everything I wanted! Jynae was very quick and responsive about the few, small changes I requested to her original design, and now I absolutely adore my new tattoo. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!
