Hello, I’m KEENA

A visual artist

& wild spirit

one Trick Pony

I create visual art – fine art, illustration (still & video) and design – for individuals, big & small companies, and organizations. Sometimes I even coach & mentor people in creativity & clarity.

Fine Art

I am a contemporary impressionist painter of nature – animals, flowers & landscapes primarily.

You can see my impressionist paintings at the Keena Fine Art Studio. 




Illustration & Design

I love to do illustration & design for books, businesses and organizations. I do spot illustrations for websites and publications, illustrated whiteboard-style videos, and book illustrations for adults & kids. I have been a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators for the last 3 years, having trained with Dr. Mira Reisberg.

I am also learning visual recording & facilitation.

My design projects include posters, branding, wine labels & package design, and surface patterns.

More information on the Studios and my current projects below.


Teaching, Coaching & Mentoring

I offer 1:1 and group coaching & 1:1 mentoring at the intersection of creativity, wild/natural spiritual philosophy (science-based, non-secular, nondual), and often business/work. 

Business/work can be anything from starting and building a conscious business to dealing with the everyday: things like productivity, time/energy management, dealing with overwhelm/burnout and coping with inner demons. I will be offering courses in these subjects in the near future.

I have coaching certifications in NLP life coaching and business coaching, and 2 specialty certificates in Divinely Guided Life Coaching (Andrrea Hess) and meaning coaching (Eric Maisel). 

You can find out more at the WildSpirited Studio.

With updates on current projects


The WildSpirited Studio is the result of a lifetime’s learning & experience at the intersection of art, science and spirit. It is a visually rich exploration of what it means to be in touch with your true nature, and live a creative & spiritually-fulfilling, wild-spirited life.

As a zoologist and conservationist, I am dedicated to helping preserve our beautiful planet’s wild spirit. Visit the site to find out how you can, too.

Current Projects

This site is in the development stage right now, but you can head on over the site to sign up for updates at WildSpirited.com, if these ideas interest you. 




If you are looking for realistic animal and flower portraits and fun still life paintings of toys, head over to Keena.ca. I paint in acrylics and oils, and sometimes mixed media. 

Commissions are accepted.  I only take a limited number per year, and if they are gifts required for a certain date, they should be ordered at least 4 months in advance.


My illustration and design work is quite varied. I am currently interested in conscious collaborative projects, and adult & children’s book projects. Please use the contact form below to connect! 


Current Projects

  • Development of the WildSpirited site, which will be fully illustrated, including an illustrated blog, visually annotated courses, and a shop with paintings, posters, and other products that will help raise funds for the voiceless and homeless animals of the world – endangered species & abandoned pets
  • Children’s book illustration: “Where did all the squirrels go?” 
  • Educational whiteboard videos for the British Columbia Caribou Recovery Program (for which I am also involved as a biologist & project coordinator, and have done all the visual brand design).
  • New portfolio website will be forthcoming, but could be awhile!
