People of the Seafoam 3

24” x 36” Mixed Media on Canvas. $1080 CND

Pacheedaht means people of the seafoam, these original people live in this intensely beautiful area on San Juan Bay in Port Renfrew. It is a gift to be in this region so close to nature. The paintings speak to me of the wildness of water, one of its many personalities, they bring that vibrant quality into any environment.

These three paintings together are a bold statement bringing the wildness of nature into a room. They can be hung in any order or orientation working together or seperately.

The Great Awakening

30” x 40” Acrylic on canvas. $1490

Deep into the pandemic when the world seemed to be shattering into bits these few large paintings emerged telling a story of transformation. As the world we know became increasingly seemingly fragmented, undone, all reason ripped apart, the light still shone through and in pockets even became brighter. This is a potent story of the time we have all been through, which in the end I believe we will all be better for having experienced.

Living on Vancouver Island for the last 30 years has provided me with endless opportunities to discover new wilderness areas, the San Juan Wind series was inspired by many visits to the Port Renfrew region on the south coast.

Odin the Unknowable

12” x 12” Acrylic on birch cradleboard $295

This sweet little painting with its unicorn colours would look charming in so many placements and any orientation. She was named as part of the Rune Series, this is the blank rune, both the beginning and the end. “ This is the rune of total trust and should be taken as exciting evidence of your most immediate contact with your own true destiny which, time and again rises like the Phoenix from the ashes of what we call fate”

The Ravens Song

12” x 12” Acrylic and mixed media on birch cradleboard. $295

This little gem is one of my favourites but I would let it go if someone loved it as much as I do. She came together smoothly in one of those times of flow and spoke to me as clearly as the call of the raven.
