    Island Forests

    $85.00$465.00

    I often hike in and around Thetis Lake. The network of trails is vast and the forest is beautiful. I’ve tried to capture the glow that the forest provides… for my eyes and my heart.

    Progeny

    $85.00$500.00

    This painting was inspired by the old growth forests in the Broken Islands Group. In the different stages of the forest, nurse logs play a very important roll. A nurse log is a fallen tree which, as it decays, provides ecological support and nourishment to seedlings.

    Exalt

    $85.00$595.00

    I captured this image while hiking into Schooner Cove in Tofino. It was early morning and we had just reached the beach to discover some perfect conditions. There was a slight mist in the air and the sun was shining perfectly through the trees. As soon as I saw this scene I was super excited and took a ton of photographs! Sometimes it is just about being there at the right moment.

    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.

    Avatar Grove

    $135.00$480.00

    The Avatar Grove is managed by the Ancient Forest Alliance and improvements of boardwalks and stairs have greatly improved the experience. There are lower and upper groves to wander through, the lower descending to the Gordon River. The road is basic logging road and can be filled with pot holes. The wonders of standing amongst these old giants in a real wilderness setting is certainly a tranquil experience.

    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.

    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.

    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 western red cedar has been called “the cornerstone of Northwest Coast aboriginal culture,” and has great spiritual significance. 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.

    Black Tail on Stoney Hill

    $85.00$500.00

    Small island deer are everywhere on the southern forests of Vancouver Island. Stoney Hill Regional Park is a gem located between Maple Bay and Genoa Bay near Duncan. Spectacular arbutus and moss covered viewpoints abound. Well worth a visit. The deer are very aware over the ever-present cougars and so keep a pretty low profile. I came across this one in the interior of the park. This tree in the foreground is distinctive so you will recognize it if you explore this magical place.

    The Watchman

    $85.00$465.00

    West coast rainforests invoke mystery, reverence and humility. We tread quietly among these ancient ones. The solitary raven sifts through the trees over our heads, watching. Are we family or are we a threat?

    Climb

    $100.00$505.00

    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.

    A Good Day For Ice Cream

    $85.00$595.00

    The shape of this thickly padded rock near the edge of a cliff at Mt. Wells Regional Park made me think of an ice cream cone. The forests here are often messy in their natural state, so it’s nice when you can rest your eye on a simple shape.

    One of my favourite places to stop on my way to Tofino is Cathedral Grove. Those big mossy trees are so impressive and inspiring. The different colours of the long, textured bark make old trees beautiful and unique. Cathedral Grove is a 300 hectare provincial park that showcases an ancient Douglas fir ecosystem, stewarded by the Indigenous peoples for thousands of years. Presently, the biggest trees in the Grove are about 800 years old; they are the survivors of a forest fire that ravaged the area about 350 years ago.
