    Missed opportunity

    $85.00$480.00

    This painting’s inspiration came from a rare encounter I had while hiking around a local beaver pond in Port Alberni. This beautiful bird is a black-crowned night heron. My presence probably caused her to miss out on a meal: the rough-shinned newt escaped, leaving behind a few bubbles.

    Sidney Spit

    $85.00$595.00

    A group of outdoor painters take the walk on ferry to Sidney Island and the spit to paint for the afternoon. This one is a view looking north east. The Sidney Spit Marine Park,is a sandy, narrow strip of land that stretches into the sea. The spit’s tidal flats and salt marshes are often overflowing with shorebirds during the bird migrations of spring and fall.

    Chinook Release

    This piece was inspired by the conservation efforts of Chinook release off the Northwest tip of Haida Gwaii for future generations to enjoy. Letting something go can be just as beautiful.

    ‘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.

    Incoming Tide

    $85.00$465.00

    The west coast offers an endless variety of compositional possibilities to the artist. Botany Bay near Port Renfrew inspired this piece. I stood on the shore for hours absorbing the feeling of the place and the character of the elements. Small preliminary sketches begin my process. Back at my studio I composed this painting with the foreground rocks designed to represent the eroding yet steadfast island resisting the relentless seas.

    Fisgard Lighthouse

    Since1860, Fisgard Lighthouse has served continuously as a beacon on Canada’s West Coast. Although still in operation, it also serves as a museum with interactive displays and vintage photographs. It occupies the same location as Fort Rodd Hill National Historic site – a beautiful park featuring acres of historical buildings and meadows overlooking Esquimalt Harbour.

    Lilting

    $85.00$465.00

    Dancing with the breeze, the bees and passing glances, my attention lands on the detail at the centre of a blossom – a delicate sign of life as I pause while making my way past the blossom-lined pathways of the Ross Bay Cemetery. No doubt Emily Carr, buried here, would appreciate this homage.

  • Mason Jar 51 with Indian Paintbrush

    Mason Jar 51 with Indian Paintbrush

    A work from my Mason Jar series. This series began as a family history project and then moved into food and environmental security. Also called the common red paintbrush, this type grows on the land farmed/ranched by my grandparents. It is more usually found in mountainous areas, like the San Juan Ridge Ecological Reserve, a rare sub-alpine meadow that is part of the epic Kludahk Trail.

    Cedar at Francis King Park

    $85.00$480.00

    It was a rare foggy morning and the light was just right for a walk in Francis King Regional Park. The magnificent moss-covered cedars in the park took on an almost “glow-in-the-dark” character when illuminated from behind. This tree in particular exemplifies the great sweeping curves of cedar branches.

    Whiffen Spit in Sooke is a beautiful place to relax and unwind. I lived in Sooke for 10 years and this was my favourite place to take my dog for a walk, no matter what the weather! Sunny or stormy, we loved going there. This painting is the view from the spit looking back towards where Sooke Harbour House is.

    The easily navigated South Beach and Nuu-chah-nulth Trail leads to this incredible beach south end of Wickaninnish Beach in beautiful Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. This place is an artist’s dream and I have been fortunate to have spent many hours there. Wild and wet or sapphire blue and serene. This is the beach with everything…exciting, inspirational and just plain awesome!

    My favourite place to surf in Tofino – Long Beach. The big rock here is Lovekin Rock. Early morning is the best time to get to the beach to surf, especially before it gets windy (which it usually will be on a sunny summer day). The light in the morning is so gorgeous…

    Beach Treasures

    $85.00$460.00

    I have spent my life beach combing and have always loved the excitement of finding treasures washed ashore. This art piece inspired my upcoming children’s picture book: Seaside Treasures (A Guidebook for Little Beachcombers). Sea glass is a beautiful artifact that can be found almost everywhere on beaches where the surf has pounded and shaped glass fragments into shapes of art. Vintage bottles, jars, and anything made from glass, thrown away in decades past, are tumbled by the waves of the ocean to form beautiful gems of diverse colours.

    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.

    A visceral impact of sea on rocks moves our body into the seascape, releasing the totality of the water’s energy to the viewer.

Without compromise, we breathe.
