  • Whisper

    Whisper

    $100.00$395.00

    This work is inspired by the forests near China Beach, Vancouver Island. It encapsulates the visual complexity of the forest; the solidity of massive cedar trunks, the graceful sweep of arched branches, the kaleidoscope of light through the canopy and the wind gently whispering through the boughs.

    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.

    Big Ol’ Tree

    $85.00$505.00

    Big Ol’ Tree can be found on Salt Spring Island on the traditional territory of the Tsawout people. The trail along the ocean is my favourite place on the island. The sacred nature of this land is palpable. The trees hold old stories. Be sure to hike this magical trail with access at the end of Menhinick Road.

    Lonely Doug

    $85.00$480.00

    At 70.2m/230ft tall, 11.9m/39ft circumference and 3.9m/12.4ft diameter, ‘Lonely Doug’ is officially Canada’s second largest Douglas fir. It is one of the remaining Pacific North West rainforest old growth giants that now make up less than one percent of old growth remaining standing on Vancouver Island. On this day I made the trip to give ‘Doug’ a collection of hugs from friends around the world… it was pouring rain as I arrived and hiked down the steep slope to the massive trunk. Hugs and love given, I hiked back up to my truck… the rain abated and a light breeze began moving the fog that hung thick in the valley. I grabbed my camera and captured this magical images.

    Sunset on the Rocks

    Waiting for the light paid off during this sunset at Cox Bay, Tofino. I got the exact shades of orange and blue I was hoping for. Cox Bay borders the Pacific Rim National Park, and its wide open, west-facing beach is a favourite relaxing and surfing spot for locals and visitors alike.

    Old mill site posts

    $85.00$465.00

    In 1886 Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, traveled to Shawnigan to personally hammer in the last spike of the new coast to coast railroad. Soon after a mill opened on the lake, making use of the rail line to transport logs to market. Shaw. The name Shawnigan is an adaptation of the Hul̓q̓umín̓um̓ (Coast Salish) name Shaanii’us.

    Burnt Window- Francis King Park

    $85.00$360.00

    This painting is one of a series of bark studies. It depicts a decaying cedar stump that was victim to a forest fire about 70 years ago. It stubbornly continues to support life and through it’s window, offers a glimpse into the past. In 2014 I was artist in residence in Francis King Regional Park and that time deepened my love for this beautiful urban forest. Cedar is a versatile wood, and Coastal First Nations have traditionally used its bark for mats, blankets, clothing hats, baskets, rope and fishing nets.

    August Kites on the Beach

    $85.00$460.00

    It was a hot August day at the beach as I set up to paint en plein air, a warm breeze was blowing and a few kite flyers released their colours into the air as I laid down the foundations to this painting. As I watched paint dry more and more kite addicts surrounded me, I realized I was painting in the middle of a celebration of kites. It was magic!

    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.

    Playfaire Park

    $85.00$465.00

    Springtime at Playfaire Park is crazy beautiful. There are thousands of camas blooming in among the Garry Oak trees in this micro ecosystem. I love the purple of the camas against the green of spring. The Garry Oak ecosystem is home to more plant species than any other land-based ecosystem in coastal British Columbia. This park is located in the traditional territory of the the Lekwungen (Songhees and Esquimalt) People. Camas and the many other plants found in Garry Oak meadows are important Indigenous food sources. Unfortunately, this ecosystem is endangered, with less than 5% of the original habitat remaining in near-natural conditions.

    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.

    Catboomer

    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.

    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 Cheewaht Giant is estimated to be 2,500 years old, and still growing. It is 20 feet wide, 60 feet around, and over 182 feet high.

    Vancouver Island is in the middle of Western red cedar range. The island’s temperate rainforest climate make this prime territory for these slow growing, long lived trees.

    The western red cedar has been called “the cornerstone of Northwest Coast aboriginal culture,” and has great spiritual significance. Coastal people use all parts of the tree. They use the wood for dugout canoes, house planks, bentwood boxes, clothing, and many tools such as arrow shafts, masks and paddles. The inner bark can be used for rope, clothing and baskets. The long arching branches can be twisted into rope and baskets. It is also used for many medicines.

    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.

    The Western red cedar is British Columbia’s official tree.

    The Southern tip of Vancouver Island was once home to expansive ecosystems of Garry oak (over 10,000 hectares in 1800 to 512 in 1997) . Garry oak ecosystems are at risk and many are protected. These groves were a vital food source to the people, plants and animals of this region. Set against a rolling expanse of sheep pasture and the sparkling Juan De Fuca Strait, the gnarly branches and twisting limbs of the majestic Garry oak line the drive to Taylor Beach in Metchosin.

    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.
