I am inspired by the changing colours of the sky here in the Gulf Islands and so, to begin my new painting adventures I have begun a new series of paintings aptly titled Pender reflections. I hope you enjoy them .

many artists have captured the story of this well-known gem . I have tried to capture the energy and beauty in the rocks as they hug the water and display its landmark lighthouse proudly .
" The Artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web"

There is nothing I like to do better than to travel the west coast ferries through the islands off British Columbia's coast. I love our ferries, and I love the adventure the magnificent beauty that is ever-changing and always full of new colours and colour vibrations .
Haida Gwaii is one of the most spiritual and special places on earth . Trying to express the impact of this place on me as an artist will be a life long journey . If you have travelled to this place you know that the land is one of layers of nature , built one layer on another ; more importantly it is also a place of historical significance - with many layers of history and significant stories of the first peoples who have long lived here and protected their home from all kinds of challenges and invasions .
