Artist Biography:

Local Canadian Artist living in the mountains by Sun Peaks Ski Hill, just outside of Kamloops BC.

Jenna Cotter is mostly self-taught but enjoys taking any art classes offered when they pop up. She has been doing painting, drawing, photography and other forms of creativity since she was a child. She attended BCIT in Burnaby BC in 2012 for Graphic Design which was for the purpose of her clothing line Diamonds And Dirt, started in 2010. She is an outdoor enthusiast that spends most of her time in the mountains or by the water adventuring and taking in all this beautiful world has to offer. She is passionate about putting the things she sees or dreams onto canvas with a pop of colour and twist of whimsical. Jenna loves seeing people smile and feel happy. She wants her art to spark happiness, colour, optimism, life, peace, and good energy. Her home is covered in colourful paintings and photos of adventures. She and her son call it their “happy home”. Jenna wants to spread those feelings of joy & happiness to other people’s homes.

Her art is made with attention to energy & feelings for ~Good Vibes~ She says every piece of her art is a little piece of her heart.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.

The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.

Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.

We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
