    Where the heat of summer impulse meets refreshing calm – inspired by reflective moments at a tiny cove near the Point No Point Resort near Shirley, BC. Memorable at any time of year, but really spectacular on sunny summer days.

    I love the light in a winter sky at sunset. I feel like I am part of something larger than me. This iconic staircase holds court at the eastern end of the Dallas Road walking path.

    Sunset at Black Rock

    This is a sunset I had the privilege to witness on the extraordinary, rocky coast of Ucluelet BC. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to capture it in glass, it was a rewarding challenge for me.

    I love Tofino – my favourite place! This is a sunrise view of Frank Island, which you can walk to when the tide is low. It is at the end of a spit of land that connects South Chesterman and North Chesterman beach.

    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.

    Winds had howled for days. It was the second storm in just a few weeks. As the storm edged its way back, I headed for the shores. The breaking light was stunning and the waves were still smashing up against the rocks with gusto. There is this sensation of being all in one – a wholeness, alive.

    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.

    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.

    Painted on site at Saxe Point Park in Esquimalt. Inspired by the spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca. The park was created in 1934, and during World War II, many mature Douglas fir and Grand fir trees were cleared and a searchlight was installed as part of shoreline defense.

    Botanical Beach Mussels

    Exploring the gorgeous pot holes at Botanical Beach near Port Renfrew. The sandstone here has lovely pools that are little aquariums, the shells and sea life are amazing. But I am always drawn to the mussel shells that cling to the rocks, and these were draped so wonderfully with flowing seaweed.

    Parliament Buildings British Columbia

    Not even the moon can compete with the three thousand lights that set the Parliament Buildings aglow each night. Located on Victoria’s Inner Harbour, construction of the iconic Romanesque Revival building began in 1893 with further additions completed between 1912-1916. I used to work across the street from the building and had the pleasure of visiting it many times. The evening light-up is a tourist favourite.

    Ultimate Journey

    $85.00$205.00

    Having reached their reproductive potential, each year adult sockeye make the harrowing journey from the Pacific Ocean back to their natural streams where they once developed. The journey is neither short nor easy. Significant energy resources are depleted, cataracts block their path, and many predators intend to make nutritious meals of them. The salmon fight the odds. It’s a perilous journey with death as the inevitable result, but it is one of nature’s most incredible spectacles. Death leads to new life, whether it is the next generation of salmon, as food for bears, or nutrients that leach into the ecosystem as their bodies decompose. Top fly fishing rivers for Sockeye Salmon on Vancouver Island: Stamp River, Campbell River. Painting inspired by original reference photo courtesy of flyfisher Kasey Halcro, Montana.

    On patrol – bald eagle

    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.

    As a plein air painter, I often work outside and even when pieces like this one are completed in the studio, the sensibility of appreciating non-sunny visual feasts prevails. Botanical Beach is a wonderful place to view the plethora of animal life on the seashore, but it is also a magnificent place to walk the trails while viewing the the magnificent power of the ocean.

    The Passage

    Chrome Island has one of the last staffed light houses on the west coast. Established in 1891, it was built at a time when the Olympia oyster beds (the only native oyster) in this area were thriving, providing sustenance to the Indigenous peoples and commercial fisheries. You can easily paddle out to Chrome Island to tour of the lighthouse and see the Indigenous art carved in the rock. Keep your eye open for Orca pods! That’s Denman Island in the background.

    Always The Chase

    $85.00$205.00

    Anglers blaze winter months in pursuit of one elusive silver prized steelhead, a salmonoid that demands dedication and a commitment of many hours to hook even one. The pursuit is an act of fisherman’s patience — one with no guarantee of success but one that offers the potential for thrill unmatched by any other fish species that swims BC’s river’s. Top 6 Steelhead rivers on Vancouver Island: Cowichan River, The San Juan River, Stamp-Somass-Sproat River, Gold River, Nimpkish River. This painting was inspired by original reference photo courtesy of Professional Photographer Matt Guymon, Freestone River Photography, Utah.

    ‘One’

    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.
