Jonnel Covault’s Work Promotes Healing

Art alum Jonnel Covault's linoleum block prints are on display at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Hospital's Cancer Center in Bellingham, Washington, as part of their Nature of Healing art installation.

For seventeen summers Covault and her family fished from a remote camp in Western Alaska. "The isolation, storms, bears and the cyclical nature of the sockeye salmon run was both exciting and inspirational. Because I have been fortunate to live in such beautiful places, I've been compelled to make landscapes."

Before her wilderness experiences on Sadie Cove and the Gulf of Alaska, Jonnel studied printmaking at California State University, Chico. In 1994 she earned a BA in Art from Marylhurst University. With an eye for the look of light on water, the Portland-based artist has portrayed the waterscapes in meticulous detail.

The art collection on display at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Hospital's new Cancer Center features paintings, prints, photographs and sculpture from among the most highly regarded artists working in our region today. Each artist has a unique vision and interpretation of the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
