    Fishing Floats

    $85.00$460.00

    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!

    Eyes on You

    $85.00$595.00

    This paintings inspiration came from many years hiking the mountains, tracking the elusive cougar. Most people never see these cats while out exploring, but more times then not, they see you long before you ever see them. Like when you get that funny feeling that you’re being watched and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Don’t be fooled – Vancouver Island has a healthy population of cougars.

    Sea Glass Rainbow

    $85.00$460.00

    Some call sea glass “mermaid tears”. There is a legend that says sea glass is created when mermaids cry for the people who have lost their lives in he ocean. As the mermaids’ tears hit the water, they turned into magical pieces of frosted glass. This is another piece from my new Children’s Picture Book: Seaside Treasures.

    Altar

    $115.00$360.00

    The ancient forests of Vancouver Island are precious. At over 500 years old, this old growth cedar is majestic and awe-inspiring. It was used as the title inspiration and cover art for Buckman Coe’s album ‘Altar’ (available on Spotify and SoundCloud). When you visit Avatar Grove, look for her on the right hand side of the trail.

    Spirit of the salmon

    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.

    Arbutus Tree Reaching

    Late afternoon sun catches the curves of a grand old arbutus tree reaching out into Campbell Bay on Mayne Island in British Columbia, Canada. I want not to move or even shift my gaze for a very long time.

    This painting was inspired by Florencia Beach in Ucluelet. I am always attracted to the edge of water and I wanted to capture the sensation of waves cascading onto the beach. And yes, I did get my feet wet as I was capturing my reference image!

    Sardines, Thursday

    $85.00$345.00

    I had my studio in Cowichan Bay for a few years (2016-2017) and fell in love with the spirit of the place. The Pacific Sardine is a member of the herring family. This small schooling fish is an important part of our marine ecosystem as food for larger creatures like salmon and humpback whales. Between 1920 and 1940 there was a robust sardine fishery on Vancouver Island.

    Francis King Canopy

    $85.00$595.00

    One of my favourite things to do in a rainforest is look up. And with the plush carpet of moss covering the trunks it’s easy to be a tree hugger. The trees in this Franklin King Regional Park view are mostly maple with a couple of cedars.

    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.

    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.

    On patrol – bald eagle

    $85.00$595.00

    Inspirations come from many different places here on Vancouver Island. I am always drawn to the West Coast and it’s many hidden treasures it offers the curious soul. One can see majestic bald eagles as they patrol their range, always on the look out for a meal. Brady’s Beach is one of (many) favourite places to visit and understand the natural world.

    Catboomer

    $85.00$460.00

    For a few years I painted right up against the ocean, in the little town of Cowichan Bay. My art studio was located between wharfs and fishing boats. For many thousands of years Cowichan Bay was home to Coast Salish people who harvested the wealth of salmon and shellfish found in its many coves, tidal flats and swiftly flowing rivers. Cowichan Bay was the gateway for European settlement of the Cowichan and Chemainus valleys from the early 1860s. This deepwater port remains active to this day, with sport and commercial fishing and log and lumber exports.

    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.
