Howdy Islanders! So great to be back in the PNW after a 2 month surf trip down to Peru and Ecuador. Caught some crazy long waves, and had some epic adventures stretching from the Andes to the Amazon. Writing this from my new pad in Tofino, watching the storms pound against my window. Feeling so grateful to be able to call this beautiful peninsula home after years of west coast dreaming. I’ll be taking on commissions full time now, so if ya have any photos, ideas, dreams I’d love to make them a reality this year. I’ll be vending at the market downtown most Saturdays if your out this way, and have lots for sale in the Reflecting Spirit Gallery, Ucluelet and Love Craft, Tofino. Good things are coming!
Happy Spring Folks, have 4 canvases for sale in the Flying Canoe at the Best Western in Courtenay thanks to Erick and Brittany. Great new west coast inspired look with a wood fired pizza oven and laid back atmosphere. Plus wicked open mic jam nights every Friday. Valley just keeps getting better 🙂
Thanks for all your support this year! Going to be donating 10% of my profits to the Community Forest Fund, that helps to protect our backyard here in Cumberland from private logging operations. It’s been a great year vending all over the island, feeling so grateful for all the love, have a great winter!
Now Selling Fine Art Paper Prints of all my work, printed locally in Merville B.C. at four new locations:
The Otherside Gift shop in Coombs, Love Craft Gallery in Tofino and The Comox Valley Collective Gallery/Rare Bird Bookstore. All relatively new shops showcasing some of the islands best artisans.
A two week long cultural festival in Tofino and Ukee that includes speakers, workshops, art and music. This weekend they’re having an art show at the beautiful Black Rock Resort showcasing original handcrafted work from some of the Islands best artists. All extra money raised goes to the Pacific Rim Arts Society. I’ll have 2 originals for sale in beachwood frames made from salvaged wood in the Comox Valley. So if your out west in the next few weeks and need a break from the rain, check out the schedule!
Just hung 14 canvases at the new Riders Pizza location this weekend, 2738 Dunsmuir Ave, Cumberland. Will be displaying some new frames I just finished off from some local driftwood.
