Outdoors for Everyone

Denver-based artist Latasha Dunston draws a more inclusive
portrait of what the outdoors and the people who enjoy it
look like. She also collaborates with brands to raise money and
empower DEI-focused nonprofits and initiatives.

IN THIS TIME OF PANDEMIC, PRO-

test, and strife, Latasha Dunston's
art provides a lot of hope. That's
not to say her work is not political
and engaged with current cultural
dialog. Indeed, it subverts the usual expectations of who recreates
outside though peaceful scenes
of people of color bouldering, car
camping, and just enjoying the
natural world. "My love of the out-

doors is a vital part of my identity,
and I try and share that passion
with as many as I can to help show
that the outdoors is for everyone,"
says Dunston, who received a BFA
from Virginia Commonwealth
University School of the Arts with
a concentration in scientific and
medical illustration and currently lives in Denver, where she
distributes her work under her

Jitterbug Art Studios. Dunston's
illustrations have appeared in
publications including Range and
SNEWS, and she has engaged in
brand work for Otterbox, Kula
Cloth, Dirt Chalk Bags, Craghoppers, and more-always depicting
an inclusive outdoors.

Top: "I was a new climber when
Julianne Mahoney of Dirt Chalk
Bags approached me to make
art for her bags. It was incredibly
aligned with my purpose," says
Dunston. "I created a bag that pictures brown womxn in a boulder
field. Sales go directly to Brown
Girls Climb educational scholarships. It's humbling to know I can
boost someone's confidence at
the crag with a bag that represents
them fully."
