‘Cathedral Grove Portal’

‘Cathedral Grove Portal’-2015, 45″x90″ I love being in the forest but it has a dark side too. This piece mixes the beautiful with the unknown, which for me, are two of the best things about the forest. As long as it’s going well; it’s great. Cathedral Grove is an Old Growth Forest on Vancouver Island.

‘Avatar Old Growth Sky’

‘Avatar Old Growth Sky’ -2016, 45″x 45″ If you had “bug vision” you might see the forest like this… Western Red Cedars and Douglas Fir trees, some as old as 800 years and 75 m (250 ft) in height, reach for the sky.

Without any conscious plan… this piece turned out to be an homage to the West Coast Native People, who made good use of these rocky inter-tidal zones for thousands of years…

Cathedral Grove Study #3

“Cathedral Grove Study #3”Is another in my Temperate Rainforest Series. The forest was very dry when I captured the photos for this piece. I always find the forest awe-inspiring…

‘Whiffen Spit’

‘Whiffen Spit’-2016, is in Sooke… on Vancouver Island. IF you go for a walk here; you’ll end up back where you started. I made this piece for those who don’t have the time, or opportunity…
