About the studio:
My paintings are embraced with my experience of nature, transcending the limits of British Columbia’s landscapes. My contemporary style with acrylic paint includes scenes of the forest, gardens, fields, oceans, rivers, streams and mountains. Recently I have incorporated drawing and mixed media in some of my work.
I am quite proud of this piece because it has won the Jurors Choice award at The prestigious Sooke Fine Art Show last year. “Lost in the Fireweed”
Within the area I live, you can find fields of fireweed within the local mountain sides during early summer. This wild flower gives off an amazing fragrance and sheen of colour in areas that were once logged or an area where there was a forest fire. Not only is this weed beautiful to look at but they create food for the local people. Many of our local farmers set up honeybee hives within our local mountain areas to collect the honey and sell this organic product in our local markets. First Nations people used Fireweed externally for burns and other skin conditions and drank it as a tea for gastric-intestinal and bronchial problems.
