Newcastle Arbutus

Walking around Newcastle Island just off of Nanaimo, I spotted this amazing Arbutus tree clinging to the rocks and reaching out over the edge. As if to take in the view from it’s perch, these trees can often live in the harshest of conditions.

Cheryl Painter was born and raised in the beautiful Cowichan Valley; and yes – as ironic as it may seem, ‘Painter’ really is her surname! Her creative training led her to a successful career in Graphic Design. Eventually Cheryl quit the business  and focused on what would ultimately be her career calling – painting.
