Meet the woman behind this year’s Bend Winter Guide

We have emulated the Deschutes Brewery tradition of selecting a wonderful artist to feature each winter. This winter art becomes the magical backdrop to our season and is featured in our banners, guide, kiosks, ads, ornaments and more. We have had the great pleasure and honor of working with Susan Luckey Higdon for years. She is an incredible human, artist, community partner and Old Mill District resident.

Thank you Susie!

Susan Luckey Higdon is known for her landscapes of iconic Central Oregon scenes, especially water, fish and birds in their natural habitat.
