    Bald Eagle

    $85.00$460.00

    Salt Spring is a fabulous place to bird watch, and great place to see raptors like the Bald Eagle, the Swainson’s Hawk and the Red Tailed Hawk.

    Forest Bathing

    $130.00$500.00

    The forest is a huge reason I moved to the island. That and the ocean. If ever I need a boost in my life I go into the forest to reset the ‘refresh’ button. Light can look different there, smells are earthy, sounds of the leaves in the wind are all soothing. My inspiration for this piece is the Upper Maple Syrup Trail on Maple Mountain.

    Somenos Marsh

    $85.00$595.00

    I have always loved a good marsh, the sound of birds and life is comforting. And the Somenos Marsh Conservation Area is a really good marsh! It’s a globally significant Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA), and an annual overwintering and feeding spot for waterfowl travelling the Pacific Flyway. Archaeological evidence shows the Cowichan people have occupied the lands in and around the marsh for at least 4,000 years.

    Golden Hinde

    $130.00$500.00

    There are so many mountains to climb here on the island and the Golden Hinde provides spectacular views. Often hikers will bare their backsides on The Golden Hinde because the next mountain in view is actually called The Behinde. The Golden Hinde is the highest peak on the island, and is located near the geographic centre of Vancouver Island, as well as near the centre of Strathcona Provincial Park.

    Sitting on The Fence

    $85.00$480.00

    I often photograph while I am walking my dog. The Gorge area is full of opportunities to capture, including one of my favourite subjects: crows. These crows were hanging out along the Gorge waterway at the Takata Japanese Garden.

    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.

    Mossy Forest

    $85.00$205.00

    “Mossy Forest” was inspired by the forests that surround Campbell River, including the incredible Elk Falls Park. The majestic trees covered with moss are a staple in the Vancouver Island landscape. You can feel the coolness of the greenery that reminds you of a walk in a forest. The sight of rotting logs and vegetation that sustains and maintains the forest life. Simply magical.

    Standing Together

    The easily navigated South Beach and Nuu-chah-nulth Trail leads to this incredible beach south end of Wickaninnish Beach in beautiful Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. This place is an artist’s dream and I have been fortunate to have spent many hours there. Wild and wet or sapphire blue and serene. This is the beach with everything…exciting, inspirational and just plain awesome!

    Ooooh, raptors. Perhaps not the sweetest birds, but possibly the most exciting. They are fierce, and no nonsense. Raptors gotta eat! The call of the Red Tailed Hawk is often heard on the soundtrack of old movie westerns. Listen for them as you hike around this beautiful lake.

    Paradise Meadows Boardwalk

    $85.00$205.00

    “Paradise Meadows Boardwalk” was inspired by a trip to Mount Washington in the spring. It is a mountain ski village where a boardwalk has been built over the fragile vegetation in an area aptly named Paradise Meadows. The easy walk along the boardwalk is serene and relaxing as it meanders over the colorful flowers and passes peaceful ponds. It is also the gateway to the many hiking trails available in Strathcona Park.

    Memories of Saturna II

    $85.00$595.00

    A magical wedding at East Point Park on Saturna Island prompted this painting. The light was so dazzling and the landscape so imbued with colour, it just cried out for a painting. East Point Park is now a part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, one of Canada’s newest national parks. The park protects a beautiful landscape of rocky headlands, forested hills and shorelines studded with colourful tidepools.

    Beach Day

    $85.00$360.00

    I find the beautiful west coast so inspiring. We often find sand dollars on Salt Spring Island. Urchin shells are not as common to find here, but a quick nip over to Port Renfrew will bring a wealth of amazing sea creatures in the gorgeous tide pools on Botanical Beach.

    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.

    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.

    Divine Composition

    Being an artist means composing, designing or creating visual poetry but never replicating or transcribing. Leave that to the camera. Whistler was criticized in his day for saying that he rearranged his compositions because nature never got it right. BUT – this place, Little Qualicum Falls is perfect. There is nothing I could do to improve or enhance the scene. Magic!
