An evening of west coast art and live jams inside the beautiful Christy Feaver Gallery on 4th Street. Christy showcases her metal work here, along with a bunch of other talented local west coast artisans like Claire Watson (www.clairewatson.com). Great to be back out in Tofino again, hit up the Saturday market and soaked that hot September sun in, good vibrations as always, so much love for this place!

Got to be a part of the grand Opening of the White Whale Tap House in July. Had five pieces on display with a number of other local artists.

Festivals

  • Nautical Days Artisan Fair, Comox, BC

First show in the Comox Valley! Had a great August long weekend vending next to so many other talented local artists. 

  • Sunshine Music Festival, Powell River, BC

Amazing local folk festival situated right on the beach in Palm Beach Park overlooking Texada Island. Can’t think of a better way that this summer could have ended. Met so many incredibly talented artists from the Sunshine coast in a corner of the province that rarely gets visited.

  • Fiesta World Craft Fair, Courtenay, BC

The 22nd year for this Fair Trade craft fair in the Comox Valley and one of the busiest years to date. It’s grown from a few vendors in a church to the largest Fair Trade craft fair in Canada. Held on the 22nd and 23rd of November in the Florence Filberg Centre, it specializes in beautifully hand-crafted gifts from all over the world and guarantees the makers get a fair price. I donated 20% of my profits to the Raincoast Foundation who are trying to keep our coastline oil-free.

  • Fair Trade Global Market, Campbell River, BC

The last stop for the Fair Trade fair on Vancouver island was at Timberline Secondary School. Had an amazing turn out and ended up raising $700 for the Raincoast Foundation at these two events! Thank you everyone in the Riv for your support and generosity.
