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.

The most recent event was the HerringFest Artshow put on by Conservancy Hornby Island in March 2019 at the Community Hall. Another HerringFest Artshow happened at the Co-op of which I was a part of. I am happy to report that two of my sea lion watercolour paintings were sold.
In 2018 I participated and sold a large painting at UBC in Vancouver along with many other artists to fundraise for "HornbyTimes". Proceeds went towards our new Art Centre that has been in the works for quite a number of years. It is anticipated that ground-breaking for the new building will take place in the Fall of 2019.
Check out some other fund-raising projects that I have participated in with both paintings and 3-D projects over the years at: Volunteer Project Gallery
