Many thanks to this month's model Lynne Harrison

Lynne Harrison lives in Canmore Alberta.  With her husband Dave Irwin, Crazy Canuck downhill skier, she cofounded the Dave Irwin foundation for brain injury recovery when Dave suffered a near fatal ski accident in 2001.  Please go to www.daveirwinfoundation.org for more information.

During this time Lynne held two significant solo art shows.  One in Calgary and one in Canmore which were called "Significant Chiefs and Spiritual Leaders of Alberta".

Lynne paints in large vibrant acrylic on canvas both portraits and large format landscapes. She has been resident artist at Bow Lake Lodge several times.

She is readying for an upcoming show in Calgary. When she's not painting, she is managing Mountain Image Distributors which is Dave's promotional products and souvenir business out of Canmore Alberta.  Go to www.MountainImage.ca for more information.

Lynne is an avid skier, biker, and runner and is an Ironman Canada finisher and has raced seven day self supported foot races through both the Gobi Desert and the Sahara desert.

She is currently incorporating a foundation to raise money and awareness for mental illness for research, family support programs, facilities development, and education awareness projects.

In her spare time Lynne creates beautiful works of art in the format of necklaces which she has sold at various locations in the Bow Valley and is currently selling at Nikola.
