Thanks to generous funding from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance for their support on this project. With their support the Cranbrook History Centre was able to partner up with local artist, Dean CS Lewis at MysticCreations123, whose vision and artistic talent led to such beautiful creations.
Get to know the artist:
Dean CS Lewis is an LGBT+ minority with a disability, who is thankful to live in British Columbia Canada, where there is no shortage of natural beauty. Having easy access to local wildlife and a plethora of scenic wonders lets him draw on his love and knowledge of real-world biology to bring believability to his fantastical worlds and creatures.
His curiosity and love of nature has been a constant inspiration and drives him to create artwork that connects people to the unknown and often misunderstood, aspects of wildlife. He does this in hopes of sparking understanding, preservation, and conservation.
When he is not creating or studying art, he is often found at home with his partner and their many critters – usually deep in a fantasy genre game of one kind or another. As an avid gamer, he has a keen interest in creating art for game companies, particularly for tabletop-based games.
