This beach is so calm and with the power of the ocean every changing.   People from all over the world come to visit the West Coast of British Columbia and the West Coast of Vancouver Island. This could be any beach along the coast line of BC, a memory of days past, perhaps!

I have a great friend and client who asked me to paint a “West Coast Seascape” as a birthday present for someone very dear to her.  This Painting seemed to flow from my fingertips as if her and my love of the ocean was meant to be portrayed!  It was a magic day of painting … very rare and treasured!

We often spend Mothers Day in Tofino, walking the beach is so uplifting and revitalizing.  We all play like young children!  Great to feel free!  This painting was a study that I created to challenge myself and find the balance for a much larger commission.  Both were magical to paint!

One of my favourite things to do, when travelling is to go out on the water.  I love seeing the land from that vantage point.  In this instance the boulders seemed to rush out to meet the sea.  The scale of the rocks was monumental as well.  To put it in perspective the trees are 30 feet tall.  I hope you enjoy this painting and the geological story it tells.

Morning Light Alders – Cape Roger Curtis Sea Walk

We often walk along the Cape Roger Curtis Sea Walk.  It is a 4 km stretch of land that has spectacular views of the open ocean.  I am often captured by the light that dances on the trees.  Alders are interesting trees, they grow very fast and have a life of 25 years.  When they are nearing the end they start to split.  One will see long vertical splits in the wood.  Water will get inside and then when a frost hits they will suddenly explode…no rhyme of reason as to where they will land.


Arbutus on Fairweather, Bowen Island, BC

When I began painting this Arbutus, one in a series that I am completing, I felt a rush…as if something amazing was happening, that I was not in control of.  As though the painting “flowed” and created itself.  I was going to also paint leaves on it…but have recently discovered that there is a virus attacking the arbutus and perhaps they will become extinct.  As such, I have decided to leave this piece leafless…. to express my concerns.  Arbutus are beautiful trees admired by many.

When I am on Bowen Island, I often study this group of trees, they hug the coast line and capture the sunset light so very magically.  I have often heard the expression the Magic Hour, expressed by artists.  It is when the sun sets or rises…and the light shifts from flat and dull to filled with warm, rich yellows, oranges and even reds…. I could paint this tree 100 time and each time the light would be different… Enjoy!

This painting is being featured at ArtsPacific Gallery.

Bowen is a great place, when one lives on the prairies as long as I have, it seems unusual to have only a few select roads with towering, amazing trees.  On a West Coast Island… people need to plan roads around the mountains, and the moist weather makes everything thrive! The trees capture my creativity and I enjoy expressing it!

Our family has always been fascinated with the rugged coast of Western Canada. We have visited Tofino, Vancouver Island, many times, usually in the summer when the sun is shining and the weather is warm. This painting is a result of a winter trip to Tofino…where the winter storms bring in 10 foot waves…I was inspired to paint and the original sold immediately!

Southern Alberta seems vast, with large areas of land that produce grains, and raise cattle…. it has inspired me…I am so happy to be showcasing the Majesty of this raw and rugged area of Alberta. Enjoy!

If you get the opportunity drive the Cowboy Trail, Highway 22 from Calgary to Pincher Creek.  It is alive with history.
