Featured Artist

Lisa Kowieski

Lisa Kowieski is a freelance Artist and Designer, and the founder of Made by Lisa Marie. In 2016, she broke away from her corporate "desk job" in Chicago to pursue full-time freelancing as an artist and designer in the outdoor industry. She collaborates with brands to create unique artwork that tells a story and gives back to people or the environment. There's a deep connection to nature that drives a lot of her creativity. She's also sponsored as an Artist by one of the nation's largest Art Suppliers and teaches Watercolor and Drawing Workshops in Chicago and around the country. The outdoors--actually placing herself, physically and mentally, more fully in the outdoors and pushing herself in that space--has impacted Lisa's art and desire to inspire others to live a more fulfilled life and pursue their passions as well. For more on Lisa, see her website, Instagram, Facebook, and Etsy store.

Katie+Bono+Headshot+Bio.jpg

Katie Bono

Growing up in Minneapolis, Katie’s first introduction to the outdoors came in cross country ski racing. This taught her many skills that she would use later on, including how to suffer for long periods of time and how to cope with absurdly cold weather. In high school, Katie travelled to the Canadian Rockies for the first time on a training trip and fell in love with the mountains. This love affair deepened while ski racing for Dartmouth College in New Hampshire when she discovered climbing. After retiring from the ski racing circuit in 2011, Katie began guiding and had the chance to pursue climbing more extensively as a professional climber for Arc'teryx.

Katie+Boue+Bio+Headshot+Puppy.jpg

Katie Boue

Is an outdoor advocate, adventurer, climber, writer, former van-dweller, gear tester, and lover of road trips. She is a Western transplant who traded flat Florida swamps and beaches for a life of exploring mountains, camping in the desert, and playing in the snow. Katie likes to be on the road–a lot. In summer 2016, she spent 17 weeks traveling solo in a little white van to explore the west’s outdoor recreation economy, and a year living in a big yellow van while climbing full-time across America in 2013.

Madaleine+Sorkin+Photo+by+Henna+Taylor.jpg

Madaleine Sorkin

At 15, Madaleine Sorkin was guided up her first multi-pitch climb, the Prow, on a Colorado 14er. It was the range of experiences from the butterflies in her stomach the night before, to seeing daybreak in an undisturbed landscape, to exploring a small spire and naming it Macaroni and Cheese, to the sublime exhaustion by the end of the day that drew Madaleine into the art of climbing. Approaching her 30th birthday, Madaleine began to practice a single mantra: Own It. She ruthlessly applied this mantra to big wall free climbing, and it made 2012 a banner year for the insatiable athlete. At the heart of her climbing is an investigative interest into the partnerships, motivations, struggle and humor that make the pursuit meaningful.

Margie+Woods+Sailor.jpg

Margie Woods

Margie Woods is an artist, portrait photographer, writer, teacher and avid sailor. She holds her M.A. in Clinical Psychology and has worked extensively, both in private and group settings helping women to find their unique voices and strengths through the creative practice. She is also an avid sailor and was the only woman to compete in the 2016 Singlehanded Transpacific sailing race from San Francisco to Hanalei, HI. Margie plans to race again in 2020 and is currently working on a documentary about women solo offshore sailors, to illuminate and seek answers for the disparity between the number of men and women in these endeavors. 

Mollie+Welch.jpg

Mollie Welch

Mollie Welch lives in Boston where she writes copy for Ovia Health — a women's health startup. She also volunteers with Planned Planned and NARAL Pro-Choice, and previously worked at Fenway Health  — an LGBT health center. She lives to listen to and share women's stories. You can find her nodding her head vigorously, trying to keep up with the right terms to describe what she's thinking, or walking the long way home over the Mass Ave bridge.

Sarah+Tingey+Alpacka+Rafts.jpg

Sarah Tingey

Sarah Tingey is the Director of Outreach & Operations at Alpacka Raft which she co-runs with her husband, Thor, and is a strong advocate for getting more women outside playing in boats & bikes. A natural born sweep, Sarah is especially excited when she gets to work with ladies at the back of the pack and encourage them to push themselves, and their boundaries – expanding their skill set (and confidence) along the way. Despite growing up in Alaska she gets cold all the time and can always be found packing too many extra layers and snacks. Prior to moving to SW Colorado to run Alpacka Raft, Sarah worked at Nike and raced mountain bikes around the Pacific Northwest.

 

Pitchfest Winners

 
Becca Droz Hip Hop Gone Wild
Amanda Hankison High Again

Amanda Hankison

High Again

 

High Again is a compilation of photos, videos, and stories of the camaraderie found among views from mountaintops. In the last seven years the mountains outside Salt Lake City have given me something to live for, to really LIVE for. Death, depression, anxiety, and alcohol may have had a heavy hand in shaping my past but those gorgeous piles of rocks and the people that are drawn to them have created a future more full of light than I could have ever imagined.

I’ve been a snowboarder since I was five and in the twenty-three years since my compass has been guided by snow. High-tailing it out of Chicago at eighteen I eventually made my way to Utah, via Colorado. Riding all winter in Utah and all summer on Mt. Hood in Oregon gave me a home in snowboarding, which was behind the lens when it came to work. Make no doubts about it - snowboarding is a boy’s club. I’ve spent seven years navigating the waters of that industry with my camera, desperately building equal opportunities and cultivating genuine representation for female snowboarders and industry professionals alike. 

Before this time, when I was twenty, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, and medicated accordingly. That many anti-psychotic medicines induce a walking coma for fear that your unmasked feelings might do you one worse. I was prescribed a life suffocated of all feeling without a single question of my current diet and activity level, both of which were disastrous. Recovering from this complete breakdown, I moved to Utah. Snowboarding introduced me to the heart of the mountains, and the mountains, they changed everything. The last four years have been an awkward, mildly embarrassing montage of a depressed, overweight, alcoholic in denial metamorphosing into a marathon trail runner, soloing Cascade volcanos in the summer and snowboarding down Wasatch peaks in the winter. But I did it and I’m off prescriptions. I did it and I’m sober, and I’m happier now than I believed possible.

Becca Droz

Hip Hop Gone Wild

 

Hip Hop may have originated in the streets, but it has a place in the wild. Both hip hop and the wild hold space for creative expression to be exercised liberally. Hip Hop is evolving, so is climbing and so are we. I love rock climbing for many of the same reasons that I love beatboxing and writing raps. They both connect me more deeply with others and with my truest self. They both help me think about death and feel more alive. The wild of the mountains inspires me to create something beautiful.

Lizzy VanPatten, singer, climber and co-founder of She Moves Mountains, and I will write and record an original song. We will create a short film that merges adventure with hip hop through the creative eye of Henna Taylor, local Boulder filmmaker. For Lizzy and I, music and mountains inspire us to expand our comfort zones and realize our power. Henna loves to capture the creativity and vulnerability of the people she is filming, particularly outdoors. To complete the hip hop theme, we will find a b-girl to dance to our music. With this collaborative team, a remarkable adventure film is bound to result.

In the Hip Hop Gone Wild project we will create an original music video telling the story of adventure and hip hop, of following what draws us and what makes us feel alive. We will tell a relatable story of entrepreneur-climber-creative-women through rap and song, through dance and through beautiful, inspiring footage of wilderness, rock climbing and people. This unique project reflects the layers of inspiration that a group of power-women experience from spending time outside. Rock climbing is much more than climbing rocks.
