“Lately, I’ve been drawn to wood carving and oil painting, but I try not to limit myself to any medium,” says Audrey Halim, a 25-year-old visual arts major at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, Canada. A native of Coquitlam, British Columbia, and climber of four years, Halim boulders at the Hive gyms and topropes at Climb Base5 in Vancouver. The sport has crept into her art: “Climbing has influenced my art as an outdoor theme, and as a way to keep the stoke high,” she says. When Halim got sick with an autoimmune disease, she made two climbingthemed paintings, one featuring a sloth, the other a gorilla. “My friends and family encouraged me to make more, and it became a way to explore the climbing and mountain themes, and different mediums, styles, and techniques,” she says.
