Sonja Hinrichsen is an award winning artist who has pursued her Snow Drawings project internationally over years. She describes them as "large designs that I “draw” into pristine snow surfaces by walking lines with snowshoes. I have been working with community volunteers, which has enabled me to create vast pieces while at the same time offering possibility for community to participate in the making of art during exciting outdoor experiences in exhilarating landscapes. It is important to me that participants experience the elements of nature while they help me transform their own familiar snow landscape into a piece of art. Since the work itself is extremely temporary I take aerial documentation right after completion of each piece."
You can view this project and others on her website here, but here's a handful of some of our favourite pieces:
Yampa River, 2016
Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, 2016
Rabbit Ears Pass, 2012
Ooms Pond, 2011
