When you combine the views up Sentinel Pass (just past Moraine Lake near Banff) with the seasonal yellow hues of larches in September, you get magic! Alison has captured that awe-inspiring beauty, so that you can appreciate the magical views all year long.
Alison Philpotts was born in Montreal and now resides in Calgary with her husband and two sons. As a self-taught acrylic painter, she was inspired by the masters and her father. She supplemented her experimental learning through art classes at the University of Calgary. Alison's goal is to engage the viewer in the beauty of our natural surroundings through her layered illusions and her vibrant colour palettes.

Fun and different way to puzzle!
The puzzle was amazing: exquisitely beautiful and a different way of doing puzzles, which made it very interesting. I bought the flight of three small ones. A problem is that for two of them the lid comes off very easily, risking spillage and loss of the tiny pieces. Nonetheless, I have already recommended your site to a number of people.
This puzzle was a gift to my sister and she loved it! She is a super puzzler who did her first StumpCraft, Badlands to the Bone, in under 6 hours, if I remember correctly — the next one much faster! This little one was a quick pleasure.
Awesome puzzle - great quality and fun !!
Love my larches!
Artisan quality and it packs a challenge in a mini size.
