I have been fortunate enough to connect with a few people who have allowed me to work with them as models in the natural environment.
I love working in collaboration with people and their visions, allowing them the freedom to move about and explore the environment in as natural a fashion as possible. I try to avoid strict posing and prefer to work in a more organic fashion observing how each interacts with Nature’s beauty, how they derive joy and inspiration from these interactions.

For the past several months I have been visiting various women in their studios here on Salt Spring Island to record some of their incredible work and amazing processes. Each artist/artisan has a unique space, style and approach to their art but they all share one thing in common: discipline. Day in and day out they can be found in their creative spaces exploring new visions, refining delicate, subtle details and continuing their learning as they create new and exciting pieces.
From ceramic artists to fine art painters to metal sculptors, bronze sculptors, found object specialists, recyclers and more, the diversity of media in this project is quite astonishing. I will continue to work with our island’s creative women until I have a large enough body of work to mount a show and/or a book.
Stay tuned for more! In the meantime, some ongoing photographs will be included on my Project
