  • Fallen Giant

    Fallen Giant

    $85.00

    Lone Tree Hill is a small CRD park in the Highlands. It hosts wonderful arbutus and fir trees and has a view point at the top that is well worth the climb. This lovely fallen giant is only a short walk up the trail and into the woods.

  • The Wind Blows in All Directions on St John’s Point

    $130.00$595.00

    The Wind Blows in All Directions on St John’s Point

    $130.00$595.00

    In 2017 the Mayne Island Conservancy was busy raising money to save Saint John’s Point from development. This painting is one that I did from sketches made on site, and proceeds from the sale of the original were donated to this cause. The Conservancy saved the Point, a magnificent stretch of Coastal Douglas Fir landscape and over 2 km of coastline.

  • Mason Jar 27 with Miner’s Lettuce

    $85.00

    Mason Jar 27 with Miner’s Lettuce

    $85.00

    Miner’s lettuce is one of the early spring vegetables that miner’s ate when they first came to the West Coast. This image is part of my Mason Jar Series in which I explored family history, which quickly moved into food security and now has also moved into environmental security. This lettuce grows in wet places in parks and ditches all over the island. These leaves were harvested in Central Saanich.

  • 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.

    This is a cedar tree near Goldstream River, a magical place and a tiny remnant of the mighty forests that covered Vancouver Island. The old growth trees here are around 800 years old.
