About Me

My name is Jordan Fritz, and I am an artist residing on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. I run a full time creative studio from my home outside of French Beach Provincial Park, where I welcome visitors throughout the year to view my work in person. As a third generation settler I acknowledge the land that I reside and work, as part of the T'Sou-ke First Nation traditional territory. As much of my work is based in these places, It is my wish to share the stories of these lands, and capture the powerful emotions that I have felt while in these special places, with the hope that I might inspire you, my viewers, to find your own meaningful connection with the natural world.

My art explores the emotional connection between person and place. Nature has always been a place of healing and growth in my life, and it is this relationship that brings me back to my art over and over again. It is in the process of being amongst wild places, that has asked me to look inwards, to understand who I am and to be intentional about who I want to be. 

Working in an impressionist approach in acrylic and oil paints, I love tapping into the energy of place and reinterpreting those emotions into expressive brushstrokes. Nature provides stories of light and dark; stillness and movement, and my art is an exploration of what it means to be human while holding space for everything around us. It is a poem between the natural world and humanity; channelling the love languages of the world into brush strokes that ask us to slow down, look inwards and meet ourselves where we're at.

I love hearing from my community, other artists and people who want to collaborate, I'd love to hear from you, please feel free to get in touch any time!

Artist Intent & Statement

The process of creation, is a universal act of courage that has the power to connect and inspire individuals across cultures. As a painter, my brushes and canvas are the tools of creation, and they allow me to transform emotions, observations, and stories into tangible works to be shared with all people.

For me, creation begins long before the first paint falls on canvas. Creation is a healing response to emotions within, and the healing process begins by immersing myself in nature. Whether it be plunging into the mesmerizing waters off the Pacific Coast of Vancouver Island, wandering through old growth forests or climbing the snowy peaks of BC’s towering mountains, these sacred places are irreplaceable and provide healing that cannot be found anywhere else. In a time of social divide around the natural environment in Canada, my hope is to create art that evokes a sense of wonder to my viewers,  telling visual stories that bring people, wild places and cultures together.

As an emerging artist in British Columbia, I am seeking opportunities that will allow me to continue to capture the stories of the Canadian landscape, bringing light to the history of Canada and the importance of protecting wild places here in our backyard and around the world.
