Welcome to Bent-Tree Studio! ...one of the newer additions to the art culture on Hornby Island, British Columbia!
My sincere and heartfelt thanks to my husband Sam for building his first-ever studio and for helping me make my dream come true! My passion is painting and now I have a beautiful little studio that I can paint in anytime I want. I have to say it was nice to get a huge part of my living room in my house back after all my supplies and canvases left. I have many paintings displayed on the walls and you may even catch me in the middle of a creating a new piece of artwork when you come by.
Bent Tree Studio officially opened to the public on August 10, 2014 just in time to be a part of the Studio/Garden Show. Proceeds from this event will go towards building a New Art Centre in the not-too-distant future.
SOLO EXHIBITION: My solo exhibition at the Hornby Island Co-op (Ringside Market) in the Fall of 2016 went very well and produced some good sales and a new commission. The Co-op offers a great location with large high walls to showcase artwork and is the hub of the Island. I was very grateful to be able to display my work here.
SHOWS COMING UP IN 2017: There are two group shows through HIAC coming up in the summer of 2017 which I will participate in. Otherwise, I will mainly be selling my work through my studio so drop on by!
