    Oysters at Sea

    $85.00$465.00

    After a splendid dinner I was so captivated by the colour and shape of the Fanny Bay oysters we had consumed, I brought them home to paint.

    Awakening

    $85.00$480.00

    Tofino is known for it’s storm-watching weather in the winter. The sky and lighting can be amazing, especially when the sun manages to shine through for a few seconds. This is a new of a break in the storm on Chesterman Beach…

    Incoming Tide

    $85.00$465.00

    The west coast offers an endless variety of compositional possibilities to the artist. Botany Bay near Port Renfrew inspired this piece. I stood on the shore for hours absorbing the feeling of the place and the character of the elements. Small preliminary sketches begin my process. Back at my studio I composed this painting with the foreground rocks designed to represent the eroding yet steadfast island resisting the relentless seas.

    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.

    Visions of Metchosin

    $85.00$465.00

    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.

    Fisherman’s Wharf

    $85.00$595.00

    Boats and Campbell River just belong together. A small seaside town that is the gateway to amazing fishing, scenery and outdoor activities. Fisherman’s Wharf is a painting that reflects the heartbeat of this area. The blues are strong, yet calming. A true representation of this area.

    Sunrise on Chesterman

    $85.00$480.00

    Chesterman Beach in Tofino is such an amazing place! I love talking a walk here at sunrise or sunset, especially when the tide is low and you can walk all the way to Frank Island. This is a scene walking towards Frank Island on North Chesterman. The light at sunrise is spectacular!

    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.

    On the Rocks in Tofino

    $85.00$205.00

    A visceral impact of sea on rocks moves our body into the seascape, releasing the totality of the water’s energy to the viewer. Tofino, part of the west coast of Vancouver Island in southern British Columbia, Canada, demands our respect, gratitude and fearless appreciation for all that is alive. Without compromise, we breathe.

    Sidney Harbour Winter Sunrise #7

    $85.00$595.00

    Walking on the seawall in an early morning walk after a late night flight, I was treated to this spectacular winter sunrise from Sidney. The layers of cloud and veiled light provided subtle and unexpected colours and shapes. This piece was painted wet on wet with a lot of running of the acrylic paint and I was thoroughly satisfied with the feeling it evokes.

    Unheard Dreams

    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.

    The Conductor

    $85.00$500.00

    On a blustery March morning I was exploring East Sooke Regional Park when I came upon this fellow. I love cormorants and their postures as they dry off their wings. Even on this blustery and cool day it is necessary to dry off before flight is practical. If you hike along these shoreline trails you will discover these entertaining characters.

    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.

    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.

    Ocean at Maple Bay water study

    $85.00$345.00

    Maple Bay is a beautifully sheltered deep bay that faces Salt Spring Island. At low tide it offers incredible beachcombing and tide pools. And there’s a lot of sea life to see as well, including otters, seals, and the occasional visiting orca whales. This is one my favourite summer swimming spots.

    The Duet (This Pacific Life)

    $85.00$480.00

    This was inspired by my travels down the Juan de Fuca Trail on Vancouver Island’s West Coast. And by the kelp beds, mussels and, of course, the oh so formal Cormorants. Water fowl for sure but without natural oils to protect their feathers ( like ducks) they must dry their wings in the sun and shore breezes after every dive.

    WAVES STUDY 1

    $85.00$595.00

    The mysteries of the sea have inspired creatives for centuries and remain a continual source for contemplation. I am fascinated by the rhythmic sound and motion of waves and wanted to further explore their organic and ever-changing form in greater detail. This piece is one of my favourites in a series of recent watercolour studies, inspired by one of my favourite beaches on the Pacheedaht First Nation reserve land.
