November Cover Artist: Ella Kuzyk

Ella Kuzyk has been making art since she could reach her tiny baby hands into a jar of paint.

Raised on the mountains of California, Nevada, and Washington, Ella has a deep and fiery passion for the outdoors. Through high school, she nurtured that passion through her sports, cross country running and Nordic skiing. When an injury shut down her competitive career and college plans, she made the decision to move to Bozeman.

Since moving to Bozeman, Ella has rediscovered many ways to connect with the mountains that she lost under the pressures of competition. Namely, her passion for art has flourished over the last few years. Art goes hand in hand with long trail runs, days skiing in the backcountry, and nights spent under the stars.

Ella is on a mission to communicate the unfathomable wonder and indescribable wonder found in the human experience and the natural world, to both those who have experienced it themselves and those who have not.

Ella is in her third year at MSU, studying business and biochemistry. You can follow her art and adventures @january.dreaming
