PathToTheSkechingSpot-detailPortfolio I – Xwaaqw’um Series


My inspiration for this series of Salt Spring landscapes is the valley below Mt. Maxwell, which we now call Burgoyne Bay Provincial Park. Its name in the Sqw’uts’um (Cowichan) language, is Xwaaqw’um – Place of the Merganser.

selected paintings

This portfolio contains a selection of my past work, including still lifes and landscapes of Salt Spring Island on Canada’s west coast and France; two countries which I call  “home”.
