PJ & Lyla Gilhuly painted this mural for the Nelson International Mural Festival 2020.

Adopted by English/Irish parents, she grew up for the most part of her life in Ontario. After living away from her hometown for 30-plus years, she moved back to Cranbrook with her kids and settled in the small city and began a career as a self-taught artist.

Gilhuly’s expressive work is considered some of the most unique and appealing work and well represented as a Ktunaxa artist.”
