This piece was part of Gabriola Artworks' annual Object Show "unWheeldy", July 2014. It started my mania for rockfish!
Untitled mixed media collage
From my visual journal. A fun exercise I do with my daughter involving timed stages, starting with stream of consciousness writing then layering paint, collage, text and revealing portions of the text. Fun!
Practice mixed media collage
Weedseed Sunset acrylic, pen and ink
This piece became a banner for Downtown Nanaimo's Banner Festival. The inspiration came from sitting watching the sunset one late summer evening. The grass along the sandstone shore had gone to seed and the juxtaposition made for interesting composition. Close to the earth, water and sky.
Female figure in watercolour pastel.

Fish and Kelp illustration
I just love this guy! Writing children's music has been my job for almost a decade. Illustrating and writing children's books is a logical next step. Watch this space for more!
