    Sun and Sea

    $85.00$480.00

    The light on the ocean is so changeable and dramatic on the pacific west coast. I could paint it every day and it would always be unique. This painting captures a moment in time: the wind, the sun, the birds wheeling and calling.

  • ‘One’

    $85.00$465.00

    ‘One’

    $85.00$465.00

    What started out as a painting of my daughter on the West Coast Trail, became, for me, a symbol of connection, grounding and opening to the nourishment of Mother Earth and the loving Oneness I often experience in nature. The 75km trail retraces parts of an old telegraph line cut through the coastal rain forest wilderness in 1890. Hikers get to visit thousand year old cedars and some of the tallest Stika spruce in the world.

    Cowichan Bay gull

    $85.00$460.00

    For a few years I had an art studio right in the heart of the this tiny seaside village. It’s no wonder Cowichan Bay is the first Cittaslow community in North America.

  • Paradise Meadows Boardwalk

    $85.00$205.00

    Paradise Meadows Boardwalk

    $85.00$205.00

    “Paradise Meadows Boardwalk” was inspired by a trip to Mount Washington in the spring. It is a mountain ski village where a boardwalk has been built over the fragile vegetation in an area aptly named Paradise Meadows. The easy walk along the boardwalk is serene and relaxing as it meanders over the colorful flowers and passes peaceful ponds. It is also the gateway to the many hiking trails available in Strathcona Park.

    Lovely Day

    Inspired by a spring morning at Butchart Gardens. When the air is fresh cool and the ground is covered in dew sparkling in the sunlight. The promise of a lovely day ahead.

  • Avatar Grove

    Avatar Grove

    $135.00$480.00

    The Avatar Grove is managed by the Ancient Forest Alliance and improvements of boardwalks and stairs have greatly improved the experience. There are lower and upper groves to wander through, the lower descending to the Gordon River. The road is basic logging road and can be filled with pot holes. The wonders of standing amongst these old giants in a real wilderness setting is certainly a tranquil experience.

    Golden Hinde

    $130.00$500.00

    There are so many mountains to climb here on the island and the Golden Hinde provides spectacular views. Often hikers will bare their backsides on The Golden Hinde because the next mountain in view is actually called The Behinde. The Golden Hinde is the highest peak on the island, and is located near the geographic centre of Vancouver Island, as well as near the centre of Strathcona Provincial Park.

    A Good Day For Ice Cream

    $85.00$595.00

    The shape of this thickly padded rock near the edge of a cliff at Mt. Wells Regional Park made me think of an ice cream cone. The forests here are often messy in their natural state, so it’s nice when you can rest your eye on a simple shape.

    The Last Dance

    $85.00$595.00

    Inspiration comes from countless hours exploring the many rivers and creeks through out the Island. This stream is one of many that drain into Sproat Lake, near Port Alberni. I painted these sockeye salmon (life size) trying to capture the movement between the fish and the riffles of shallow water.

    Visions of Metchosin

    $85.00$465.00

    One summer day, we were walking along the coast in the breathtaking East Sooke Park, and I settled down to do a series of sketches of this beautiful rugged coastline. Windswept trees, rocky shores scattered with the long spirals of bull kelp, sun casting white across the ocean, islands peeping out like whales from the turquoise sea. It was a blissful landscape.
    When I returned to my studio I fused the sketches into one painting.

    Finding a sea urchin shell is a beachcomber’s dream. The occupant and spikes long gone, this grand exoskeleton was found while camping at a remote beach on Haida Gwaii. I later learned sea uchin are a staple in the diet of the Haida people.

    Winter Marsh

    Thanks to wind and current patterns, big storms bring debris from Japan to the west coast of Vancouver Island. Beach combers feel like they’ve won the lottery if they find one of these Japanese glass fishing floats. Many are over 100 years old!

    Red rings

    $100.00$595.00

    This venetian plaster painting honours the Cheewaht Giant – a massive Western red cedar tree near Cheewaht Lake. The Giant is Canada’s largest known tree. The western red cedar has been called “the cornerstone of Northwest Coast aboriginal culture,” and has great spiritual significance. With much of Vancouver Island having been logged two or three times, these giants are now rare. Luckily, this tree is protected within the boundaries of Pacific Rim National Park, which is located in the tradition territory of the Ditidaht People.

    Precarious Balance

    $85.00$205.00

    This collaged monoprint was inspired by many plein air sessions on the Nanaimo River. I love watching birds and am impressed by people who balance stones along the shore. It occurred to me that the stones could be a metaphor for human relationship to nature. It is clear that this beautiful and necessary balance is becoming more and more precarious. I hope this piece inspires others to consider their balance with nature.
